New brief: Karan Johar win award for best lyrics

Producer Karan Johar won the best lyrics award for the song "Radha" from the movie Student of the year release in 2012. The award was sponsored by women's rights activists and was provided for two lines in the song :
"Chhede hai humka daiyaan, bairi kanhaiya
And everybody blames it on Radha"

"(Lord) Krishna troubles me (Radha),
And everbody blames it on Radha"

The organizations said that these two lines perfectly capture the current trend where the victim of sexual abuse is blamed for the attack and is said to have brought it upon herself. They also hoped this would make people less ignorant and be more sensitive to the plight of women in the country.
