Are you ready to for your weekly dose of WTF Wednesday? Doesn’t matter if you are not. Becuase clearly Bollywood doesn’t care. If if it did care, we would not have Hina Khan forgetting what Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai was all about. Well, in today’s WTF Wednesday we have the new song from Batti Gul Meter Chalu.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu’s newly released song, Gold Tamba, has the most absurd lyrics we have heard in a long time. The lyrics have been penned by Sidharth-Garima, who have previously done a stellar job with the songs of Ram Leela. They have also co-written Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. So, they are abundantly talented, we know for sure. What we fail to understand is what went wrong this time…
“When you getting Gabbar
Why go for Sambha?
When you getting gold
Why go for tamba?”
These are the legit lyrics of the song Gold Tamba.
That’s not even the worst part…
“Arre kaahe ke sab offer
Main aashikon ka topper
Bijli tu meri baby
Main tera khambha”
Please check if your ears are bleeding.
We understand the songwriters wanted to be quirky, but sorry to say, it didn’t land. The silver lining is that no amount of absurd lyrics have ever stopped a song from reaching the heights of popularity. We won’t be surprised if you end up listening to Gold Tamba on loop.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu tells the story of electricity theft in rural India and also stars Shraddha Kapoor, Divyendu Sharma and Yami Gautam. The film is slated to release in September.
