Ya Hussain, the mourning chant sung by Shia Muslims specially during the 10-day mourning period of Muharram, which was part of the film David's track, has now been removed. The decision was taken by director Bejoy Nambiar after a group of Shia Muslims saw a clipping and objected to their mourning song being sung with a background music. "The Muslim priests wanted us to remove the music from the composition and we understood their sentiments. However, instead of removing the music we decided not to use the lyrics," said Nambiar. The song was sung by Lucky Ali and composed by Prashant Pillai.
