MP Home Minister Narottam Mishra on Wednesday objected to actor Deepika Padukone’s costume in a song of Bollywood film “Pathaan” and also frowned upon the color of the attire of Padukone and lead actor Shah Rukh Khan as well.
Mishra, the spokesperson of the state government, also said Padukone has been a supporter of the ‘Tukde Tukde gang’ as seen in the JNU case. He added that the costumes seen in the song are prima facie “highly objectionable” and it is clearly visible that this song was filmed out of a “contaminated mentality”.
“I would request to correct the scenes and her costumes, otherwise whether this film should be allowed in Madhya Pradesh or not will be a question to be considered, On the one hand he visits Mata Vaishno Devi shrine, which is a good thing, but on the other, he brings women actors in bikinis in his films, This is not good” he told the reporters in Mhow in Indore district.
He also said that the ‘green’ and ‘saffron’ colours of the attire of the actor and the actress need to be “rectified” along with the lyrics of the song and also the title of the film
Mishra has earlier also called out Bollywood personalities for their movies. In October, he warned the makers of Bollywood film ‘Adipurush’, based on epic Ramayana, of legal action if scenes showing Hindu religious figures in allegedly “wrong” manner were not removed. Pathaan is scheduled for release on January 25, 2023.
