The singer’s family has taken objection to the dialogue in the movie which was embroiled in a controversy before its release as it featured Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

“Md Rafi was one of the greatest singers of India and needs no certificate from anyone. If you are a Rafi fan, boycott this movie,” Chander tweeted.

The 1988 batch IPS officer, who is posted as Director General of Police also quoted a national newspaper report which has interviewed Shahid Rafi, the son of the late singer.
