Hindi swear words?

I realize this is probably a long shot, but I figured I'd give it a go!

I recently went to see a play here in Japan which was set in an ancient Indian-esque country, and featured characters named Shiva, Vishnu, Nataraja, Parvati, among others--albeit with pretty much NO relation to said actual Indian notables.

One of the characters uttered a word that sounded like it was supposed to be an expletive a few times, but I have no clue what it might have been, and for all I know could've just been a random utterly innocuous Hindi word that the troupe thought sounded funny.

It sounded like "wakku" (ワック in Japanese, if you're familiar with the script), though once it definitely sounded like, "fakku" (so much so that my friend and I thought he was randomly screaming, "fuck me")--but that might've just been our English-speaking ears jumping to conclusions.

Anyone have any clue what he might be saying?
