Ram Charan Teja had a boo-boo moment on the sets of reality show Indian Idol Junior, reports from the unit reveal.

The actor, who had gone there with co-star Priyanka Chopra to promote Zanjeer, inadvertently complimented music composers Vishal-Shekhar (also judges on the show) on their Chennai Express music, mentioning especially the ‘Lungi Dance’, we are told.

A quick reminder: all of the film’s music was composed by the duo, except the said number (composed and sung by Yo Yo Honey Singh).

The ‘Lungi Dance’ became a bone of contention between Vishal-Shekhar and director Rohit Shetty and Shah Rukh Khan with the latter two denying that Honey Singh had composed anything at all for the film. Vishal had even picked up a public fight with Honey over what he called a non-existent song while the rapper stood his ground.

The portion was reportedly edited out later to save blushes everywhere.
