New Delhi, Nov 30 (UNI) The latest Yashraj venture 'Aaja Nachle' may have evoked much curiosity in film circles for being the comeback vehicle of 90s Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit but it has also come into the eye of a storm.

Dalits in many part of India have come down on the film for the lyrics of the title song which they allege were offensive to the community.

Activists of the Indian Justice Party today protested outside PVR Plaza in Connaught Place where the film is being exhibited, calling for stopping its screening.

The activists demanded that the director and the producer of Aaja Nachle remove the objectionable lyrics from the song.

Infact, the Mayawati Government in Uttar Pradesh has already banned the film for screening in the state.

TV Reports say Mayawati has written to the PM asking for a complete ban across the nation on the film for hurting the sentiments of dalits.

The ban has been brought into effect in Noida and other prominent cities of the state.

Meanwhile, talking to a news channel, the film director, renowned cinematographer Anil Mehta has expressed shock at the protests and even offered to remove the objectionable lyrics from the film to assuage the sentiments of the dalits.

Anil Mehta said the film did not intend to offend the sentiments of any caste or community.
