Madhya Pradesh minister Narottam Mishrira has been replaced by Girish Gautam, the speaker of the state legislative assembly. He also voiced disapproval at Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming movie Pathaan. Many politicians have criticized the film’s first song Besharam Rang, and some even suggested that the costumes worn by the lead actors may be a part of a communal plot.
On Monday, the five-day session for the MP state assembly will begin. Gautam spoke before about the controversy Pathaan has caused in the state. Many, including state leaders have claimed that the film offends their religious sensibilities. They also called the song vulgar and indecent. “Shah Rukh ought to watch this film with his child, upload a photo and let the world know that he is doing so. According to Live Hindustan, Gautam stated that he challenged Gautam to make a film similar on the Prophet and then run it. Suhana Khan, Shah Rukh’s 22-year-old daughter, will soon make her Bollywood debut.
Besharam Rang stars Shah Rukh, DeepikaPadukone. Deepika is seen in many different attires during the beach party song. However, the most controversial swimsuit that the protesters claim is saffron has attracted their ire. Although Shah Rukh sent a subtle message about social media negativity at an event, the film’s crew has not responded directly to it.
Shah Rukh spoke in Hindi last week at the inauguration for the Kolkata International Film Festival 2022. All of us are happy. I am the happiest. And I have no objection to stating that duniya-kuch bhi, main aur log aur jap log aurjitney bhi positiv log hain, sabke sab. Zinda hain. The large crowd cheered his final ‘zindahain’.
Madhya Pradesh minister Narottam Maishra had earlier objected against Besharam Rang saying that the film could not be released in the country unless the script was modified. The hashtag “Boycott Pathaan” has been trending since then on microblogging website Twitter. Pathaan will be released in theatres January 25, 2023.
