A still from Bhool Bhulaiya

Akshay Kumar's upcoming film Bhool Bhulaiya seems to have run into trouble. An advocate has filed a petition in the Mumbai Sessions Court objecting to one of its songs.

According to Mumbai-based advocate S Kunjuraman, the title song Hare Rama Hare Krishna hurts the sentiments of Hindus and Buddhists because half-clad girls are shown dancing in the song.

"It is objectionable and therefore, the song must be deleted from the film," he tells

The film's promos are currently being aired, and the song has soared to the top of the music charts.

Bhool Bhulaiya, directed by Priyadarshan [Images], is a remake of Rajnikanth's [Images] Tamil blockbuster Chandramukhi, which, in turn, was remade from the Malayalam film, Manichitrathazhu.

Also starring Shiney Ahuja [Images], Vidya Balan [Images], Paresh Rawal and Amisha Patel [Images], Bhool Bhulaiya will release on October 12.
