Hosannah is a Hebrew word which has religious connotations for Jews and Christians. It means "Save us" or "Deliver us" (from evil). Hence it is objected by the Jews and Christians as they feel that the Bollywood song is demeaning and degenerating the meaning and essence of this word. It something like making a cartoon of Mohammad, which threw the Muslim world in a tizzy.
