That Shah Rukh Khan wants to steer clear of controversies was evident when he met director Roshan Abbas and music director Pritam to discuss the music of SRKs production Always Kabhi Kabhi. Incidentally, Shah Rukh had a problem with the phrase Undie the condi, which is used in the song.
hah Rukh told Abbas that he was not happy with the lyrics and the song sounded sleazy. Abbas explained that it is only a shortform of the phrase that the youth use for Understand the Condition. Shah Rukh needed to be further convinced, and so Abbas showed Shah Rukh the research papers.Roshan Abbas said, I was telling him about the songs, when this discussion started. He asked me why are we doing this and what does it mean? Shah Rukh was of the opinion that we should not use words like undie and it sounded like kundi, which means bum in the South. I told him that this is actually a phrase which people use in North India.They use the phrase Undie the condi of the situ, which means understand the condition of the situation. I also pointed out that this was, in fact, a popular phrase in school in the North and it has been passed down many batches now.
Abbas added, Since the film is about youngsters and targets youngsters, we have used many phrases like JFI which means just forget it and PAW, which means parents are watching, etc, although I have not used PAW in my film. The kids do use these phrases and SRK was stunned and said, I know that todays generation says some weird things, but this is really different
