Besharam Rang row: RTI activist Danish Khan files complaint with NHRC against Deepika Padukone, says the actor wore Chishti colour not saffron, demands removal of song
Ever since the release of Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone’s upcoming film Pathaan’s Besharam Rang song was released, the actors have been in deep hot water. Earlier, the right wing outfits and the BJP opposed it, and now the people of Muslim community have also begun protesting against it.
RTI activist Danish Khan has lodged a complaint with the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC). He says that what people are calling saffron color is actually Chishti color and it has a lot of meaning in Muslim society. Danish has demanded the removal of the song from the film.
Song hurts sentiments of both Hindus and Muslims, reads complaint
The RTI activist wrote in his complaint that what people were calling saffron is actually Chishti colour, which is of great importance for the Muslims. This song hurts the sentiments of both Hindus and Muslims, so we demand that this song be removed from the film, complaint reads.

Why did the controversy start?
Pathaan’s song Besharam Rang has been released recently. Deepika Padukone is seen wearing a saffron-coloured bikini in this song. This song is being opposed in many parts of the country. Some people are demanding to ban this film and some want the song to be removed from the film.
Som say that saffron colour is a symbol of Hinduism and Deepika Padukone was wearing this colour and dancing on a song, which has lyrics as Besharam, and is quite objectionable. They believe that using a holy colour like saffron for bikini will not be accepted.
Protests erupted in many states
Protests have started in many states regarding Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone’s Pathaan. Demonstrations are being held in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat and Maharashtra.
In Bihar’s Muzaffarpur, five people including Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone have been booked for hurting religious sentiments and spreading obscenity.
Shiv Sainiks in Chhattisgarh have demanded removal of Besharam Rang song from the film. They say that if their demands are not met, the film will not be allowed to be released in Chhattisgarh. The Hindu Mahasabha is opposing the film in Mathura, UP, saying they will go to court against it. Apart from this, big BJP leaders like Narottam Mishra, Ramkadam and Sadhvi Pragya have also opened a front against it.
