Mukesh Khanna has joined the group of individuals criticising the primary track, Besharam Rang, from Deepika Padukone–Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming movie Pathaan. He has questioned how the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) might go the track regardless of alleged “vulgarity” within the visuals of the track.

The track launched earlier this week and has courted controversies ever since. While trolls have attacked the track for alleged vulgarity, politicians have objected to the usage of saffron color for Deepika’s apparel.
Asked to touch upon the controversy across the track, Mukesh Khanna informed ABP News, “I think our film industry has gone haywire. This is a matter of vulgarity, it has nothing to do with any kind of religious problem. The censor board is no Supreme Court. They tell me very prominent people but can they not see all these attacks on the Hindu religion?”
He added, “Ok, the issue at hand is that of vulgarity. 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! 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. This song can mess up with the minds of the youth, not mislead. This is not a song made for the OTT, but a film. How could the censor pass it? Did they not see the deliberate provocative dressing?”
BJP minister Narottam Mishra has stated that Besharam Rang mirrored a “dirty mindset”, and threatened that Pathaan will not be launched in Madhya Pradesh. The Madhya Pradesh Ulema Board has additionally raised objections to the discharge of the film within the state. President of MP Ulema Board Syed Anas Ali additionally stated that the feelings of “the Muslim community have been hurt” by the movie, including that they won’t “allow this film to be released”.
