Pathaan, starring Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan, has been the target of jokes since its debut trailer and lead song, Besharam Rang, were made public. The choice of saffron and green clothing in the movie drew the ire of Madhya Pradesh’s home minister, Narottam Mishra, earlier today. Internet users have also been mocking the movie for the same reasons. Netizens are trolling Shah Rukh Khan Deepika Padukone amid Boycott Pathaan trend.
Earlier today, MP Narottam Mishra, the home minister, harshly criticized the YRF movie, saying, “Pathaan is a flawed movie that is built on a toxic attitude. If the lyrics to the song “Besharam Rang” and the saffron and green clothing worn in the song are not modified, we shall decide whether or not to allow the film to be seen in MP.”
Since then, the movie has also become popular among internet users for the same reason. Besharam Rang from Pathaan, which was published on December 12 and gained 2 million views in just two hours, is noteworthy. Internet users have been mocking the actress for performing the song Besharam Rang (unashamed color) while donning a saffron bikini and sarong. The hashtag #BoycottPathan has even gained popularity.
For those who are unfamiliar, the song is set in a picturesque Mediterranean location during the summer, with a leggy Deepika displaying her curves in a tittilating monokini. However, internet users are upset with her choice of clothing colors. Netizens have now started using the hashtag #BoycottPathaan on social media.
“In the movie Pathan, Hakley” (referring to SRK’s character from Darr) clothed the girl in a saffron outfit and named the song Besharam Rang,” one person said. “The imbecile is calling Saffron – Besharam Rang #BoycottBollywood #Pathaan #BoycottPathaan #BeshramRang,” another user added.
The fourth entry in the YRF Spy Universe is Siddharth Anand’s upcoming action thriller Pathaan. The movie, which will be released on January 25, 2023, features Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham in key roles.
