‘Pathaan’ Controversy: Avoid ‘Unnecessary’ Remarks Modi Tells BJP Workers
NEW DELHI, (IANS) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked BJP workers to refrain from making “unnecessary” comments about films.
He made the observation while addressing the last day of the two-day National Executive meeting here on January 17.
The Prime Minister’s statement comes amid the recent protests Shah Rukh Khan’s film ‘Pathaan’, with several BJP leaders like Ram Kadam and Narottam Mishra criticizing the makers over Deepika Padukone’s saffron costume in the song ‘Besharam Rang’.
The song has been in the news for a saffron-colored bikini worn by Deepika along with a few shots that several politicians and trolls found ‘vulgar’.
As per reports, Hindu sentiments have been hurt and people have also criticized the makers as they find an “overdose” of the sexually appealing look of the actress.
Protests are on with the social media campaign seeking a boycott of the movie.
Film making is business and consumers are public. If they like to see sexually appealing vulgar exposure, films have to satisfy their lust. Also, if actresses are willing to get paid, they will do it. What morality?January 18, 2023
All the protests about Pathan are politically motivated and driven. So many movies and songs depict much more and worse. Many Hindu zealots don’t like SRK and the other two khans because they are Muslims. Extremism by Hindus is no better than terrorism by Muslims. So live and let live.January 18, 2023
