Pathaan Controversy

The controversy surrounds the movie’s newly released song ‘Besharam Rang’. The song features Shah Rukh and Deepika romancing in Spain. Right-wing groups and some BJP leaders have demanded a ban on the film as they feel offended by the contents of the song.

The list includes Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra who earlier objected to Deepika’s costume in the song and also frowned upon the colour of the outfits worn by both actors.

The minister said, “The costumes in the song at first glance are objectionable. It is clearly visible that the song of the film Pathaan has been shot with a dirty mindset. I don’t think this is right, and I will tell the director and makers of the film to fix it.” “Earlier also Deepika Padukone came in the support of Tukde Tukde Gang at JNU and that’s why her mentality has come in front of everyone before,” MP’s Home Minister added.
