Mukesh Khanna Targets Censor Board

Mumbai: Pathaan’s first song ‘Besharam Rang’ has been mired in controversy ever since its release on Monday. BJP minister Narottam Mishra and BJP MLA Ram Kadam have criticised the costumes worn by Deepika Padukone in the song. Now, actor Mukesh Khanna has chimed in. He called ‘Besharam Rang’ ‘an attack on Hindu religion’ and said the major issue in the song is ‘vulgarity.’

He objected to the clothes of Deepika Padukone in ‘Besharam Rang’ and added, ‘Our country is no Spain or Sweden or such a country that allows everything. You dared to bring people in such limited clothing, next you will bring them without the clothes.’

Mukesh Khanna also raised fingers at the Censor Board of Film Certification for clearing the song without any cuts. He said, ‘Can they not see all these attacks on the Hindu religion? The job of the censor board is to ensure that films do not hurt anyone’s personal feelings and beliefs. The censor must not pass such films that instigate or lead the youth astray.
