Although there is a complex of whites all over the subcontinent, color and size are portrayed in a slightly more negative way in Bollywood films. She was ridiculed for including a song by the famous American pop singer Beyonce in a song of the upcoming Bollywood movie 'Khali Peli'.
Filmmaker Maqbool Khan's upcoming film 'Khaali Peeli' song 'Beyonce Sharma Jayegi' was released recently but it was heavily criticized as soon as the song was released. "Beyonce Sharma Jayegi" showed Ishaan Khattar and Ananya Pandey dancing in a bold style. In the song's poetry, the fair-haired girl, Ananya Pandey, was praised and said that if she danced, Beyonce would be ashamed to see her.

Fans reacted strongly to the song, as many believed that the song's lyrics included Beyonce’s name and ridiculed the black pop singer, as well as the white color of the girls. The song was initially criticized in India but was later criticized by Beyonce fans in other countries, including the United States and Europe.
After the severe criticism of the people, the director of the film 'Khaali Peeli' Maqbool Khan apologized to the people and deleted the song and also released a new song. According to the news agency Reuters, after severe criticism, the filmmaker confirmed that the lyrics of the song "Beyonce Sharma Jayegi" were changed and a new song was also released.
If @Beyonce is creating a petition to ban the makers of Khaali Peeli from making another item song EVER again, I'm signing it. I also might put a revolver to all your heads and make you sign it as well. #BeyonceSharmaJayegi— Incredible Sulk (@SaranyaPatnaik) September 7, 2020
Maqbool Khan said that by including the word Beyonce in the song, he did not make fun of the singer nor was his intention like that. However, after the criticism of the people, the word 'Beyonce' was changed to 'Beyonce' in the poetry of the said song.
According to Reuters, the new version of the song has been initially released on music streaming websites but has not yet been released on websites that show free streaming, including YouTube.
Maqbool Khan's romantic action film 'Khaali Peeli' was supposed to be released in July this year, but its release was postponed due to Corona, but now it is being speculated that the film may be released on a streaming website.
