Lusty Saffron-Clad Sadhu Distorts Bhajans, No Devotee Notices (Aansoo Aur Muskaan)

Popular culture influences popular perceptions. So when a famous singer lampoons a bhajan as an ode to so-called ‘A-listers’ in Bollywood’s fraternity and lusts after a devotee, while dressed as a Sadhu in saffron robes, you can be assured of how Sadhus must be perceived by the non-questioning audience. Should we still wonder why Hinduphobic incidents like the lynching of Palghar Sadhus never make it to popular conversations?

Check out this abominable gem from ‘Aansoo aur Muskaan’, featuring Kishore Kumar. Lyrics penned by Qamar Jalalabadi/Indivar.

Has Bollywood ever given a similar lusty joker Maulvi character?
