Bajrang Dal and VHP will not oppose ‘Pathan’ in Gujarat, said- ‘Now public will decide whether to watch the film or not’
Shah Rukh Khan’s film ‘Pathan’ is going to release in theaters on Wednesday. Before the trailer of Pathan, when his song ‘Besharam Rang’ was released, there was a lot of ruckus about a scene. Actress Deepika Padukone, who plays the lead role opposite Shah Rukh Khan, was seen in a saffron bikini for one of the song sequences. The scene was criticized as offensive to religious sentiments. This song caused a lot of controversy and some leaders and organizations started opposing Pathan. There was a call to boycott the film. However, now there is big news for the fans of Shahrukh Khan.
Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal, which were at the forefront of protesting against Pathan in several cities, will no longer oppose the film in Gujarat. Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s area minister in Gujarat Ashok Rawal has issued an official statement in this regard. In his statement, he praised the censor board for changing Pathan and said that now the public will decide not to watch the film.
Ashok Rawal said in his official statement, ‘It is a good thing that the censor board has removed obscene songs and obscene words from the film after Bajrang Dal protested against the Hindi film Pathan.’ I congratulate all the workers and the entire Hindu society for this successful struggle to protect religion and culture.
Difficulty if culture is not taken care of
Ashok Rawal said, “At the same time, I request the censor board, producers and theater owners that as an important participant of the film industry, Bajrang Dal and Hindu society will not have any objection if they pay attention to religion, culture and religion. Keeping this in mind, we oppose such things. Patriotism.” ‘We leave it to the famous citizens of Gujarat to decide whether to watch the film or not,’ Ashok Rawal said before ending his statement with ‘No Bharat Mata Ki Jai… Jai Shri Ram’.
Let us inform that ‘Pathan’ is going to be released in theaters on January 25 and advance booking is being done for it. Ashok Rawal’s statement a day before its release will further motivate the theatre-goers to watch Pathan. Now it has to be seen how the business of Pathan will be.
