Amid the controversy surrounding Pathan, YRF's upcoming action thriller, the makers of the film have been asked to implement some changes by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). "Just to clear all questions about the film Pataan: the film has reached the CBFC review board for certification," said Prasoon Joshi, Chairman CBFC. Joshi said the CBFC committee directed the filmmakers to implement the suggested changes in the film, including music, before handing over the revised film to the editing board.
Joshi added that as the board followed the established process, they wanted to strike the right balance between the creative expression of the filmmakers and the emotions of the audience. "As this method is carefully followed and put into practice, I will repeat that our culture and our faith are wonderful, complex and diverse. We should be careful not to explain it through myths , which distracts from what is true and real,” he explained.
Joshi added that it is important to protect the trust between the creators and the public and asked the creators to continue working on it. Pathan, which stars Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in lead roles, is set to release in January 2023.
However, the film has already found itself in hot water with many. The film has already faced a firestorm for Shah Rukh Khan's first statement. However, the recently released song from the movie Besharam Rang has created controversy. Many criticized the song for Deepika's look in a saffron bikini and sultry dancing, with many right-wing thinkers hesitant to call the song "vulgar".
Shah Rukh's green shirt in the song angered many. When the song was criticized for the saffron bikini, Deepika wore four different outfits in the song, and the saffron bikini was on screen for only 20 seconds. Politicians like Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra and State Assembly Speaker Girish Gautam also objected to the song and sought coverage of the scandalous incident.
