Shahrukh Khan Upcoming Movie Pathaan
Shahrukh Khan will be starring in the upcoming movie Pathan which is being produced by Yash Raj Films. The movie is set to release in 2022 and will be directed by Siddharth Anand. The movie is said to be an action-thriller and will star Deepika Padukone, John Abraham and Dimple Kapadia in pivotal roles. The movie is set to have some high-octane action sequences and will be the first time Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone are sharing the screen space in a movie since the 2007 movie Om Shanti Om.
Pathaan Movie Controversy
The recently released song ‘Besharam Rang’ from the highly anticipated Shah Rukh Khan movie ‘Pathan’ has been the talk of the town. The song features the voices of Shilpa Rao, Caralisa Monteiro, Vishal and Shekhar, and was filmed in a beautiful location with Deepika Padukone wearing several stunning bikinis, including an orange one. This sparked a controversy among Hindu organizations and leaders who felt that the song had disrespected the sacred saffron colour and Hindu sentiments.
The controversy surrounding Shahrukh Khan’s movie Pathan and Deepika Padukone wearing an orange bikini in the song Besharam Rang was largely due to the fact that it was seen as inappropriate and too provocative for Indian audiences. Some people felt that the song and Deepika’s outfit were too risqué and not in keeping with the country’s culture and values. As a result, many people are calling for a boycott of the movie.
