Pushpa: Allu Arjun responds to 'Oo Antava... Oo Oo Antava' issue

The track has been the talk of the town, especially for its quirky lyrics that seem to mock the male gaze

Published: 14th December 2021

Actor Allu Arjun has responded to the discourse surrounding the Oo Antava... Oo Oo Antava song from his upcoming pan-Indian film Pushpa: The Rise.

The dance number featuring Samantha has been a subject of discussion since its release on December 10. The lyrics of the song take a dig at the male gaze. While many have praised the song for its unique take, it has also drawn criticism from men for 'generalising men'.

When asked about the same at a press meet in Chennai, Allu Arjun jokingly put an end to the conversation by cryptically asking, “It’s true, isn’t it? When you look at it, you can see it’s true.”

Oo Antava... Oo Oo Antava, composed by Devi Sri Prasad, was released in five languages. The track has vocals by Andrea Jeremiah, Indravathi Chauhan, Ramya Nambeesan, Mangli and Kanika Kapoor in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi respectively.  The song's lyrics are written by Viveka (Tamil), Chandrabose (Telugu), Siju Thuravoor (Malayalam), Varadaraj Chikkaballaura (Kannada), and Raqueeb Alam (Hindi).

Pushpa: The Rise directed by Sukumar is bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers in association with Muttamsetty Media. The film marks the Telugu debut of Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil, who portrays the main antagonist. The film, a first of a planned duology, is set to release in theatres on December 17.

The action drama revolves around red sandalwood smuggling in remote parts of the Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh. Pushpa will be released in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi.
