BJP activists in UP seek boycott of 'Pathan'

Update : 15 Dec 2022, 14:40

Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming film 'Pathaan' has landed in a soup over its recently released song 'Besharam rang'.

Directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films, the film stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. 'Pathaan' is slated to release on January 25 in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. Several people have objected to the colours of Deepika's costumes in the song.

Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra on Wednesday termed the costumes and scenes in the film "obscene and condemnable".

"Actress Deepika Padukone's costume is highly objectionable and the song has been shot with a dirty mindset. The scenes and costumes of the songs should be changed, or we will have to take a decision on ist screening in Madhya Pradesh," Mishra said while accusing the actress of supporting the 'Tukde Tukde' gang.

BJP leader Rajesh Kesarwani said, "Vulgarity with saffron colour was being committed in a song in the movie and it is an insult to the Hindu community and Sanatan culture. Hence, we have expressed our concern."

The BJP leaders have also demanded that the state government ban the movie in Uttar Pradesh with immediate effect and initiate stringent action against the makers.

"This is an insult to our saffron dress, which Sanskruti Bachao Manch will not tolerate. Shahrukh Khan, when Hindus started boycotting your film, you remembered Vaishno devi. Before the release of your film, you are going to Vaishno Devi. You will have to apologize to all Hindus and remove the song from this film because the people of India made you a superstar. Shahrukh Khan, why are you always degrading your image by doing such acts? You should apologise to all Sanatan Dharma believers," said Chandrashekhar Tiwari, President of Sanskriti Bachao Manch.
