Pathaan gets U/A certificate
As reported by Bollywood Hungama, CBFC has made 10 cuts in the film and after that, the film starring Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham secured a U/A certificate. As mentioned on the certificate, the length of the film is 146 minutes. In other words, Pathaan is 2 hours and 26 minutes long. Well, it is not clear whether the saffron bikini which created a lot of uproar after the song Besharam Rang was released has been asked to remove or not.
The moment Pathaan’s first song featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, titled Besharam Rang was released, it broke the internet and how! Some loved this peppy track but some found Deepika wearing a Saffron and a Green bikini objectionable. Some activists in Indore staged protests and set effigies of Deepika and Shah Rukh on fire. Even Madhya Pradesh minister Narottam Mishra openly objected to the use of a Saffron costume in the song while talking to media persons a couple of days after the release of Besdharam Rang. He said the film contained some objectionable scenes and threatened to ban Pathaan in Madhya Pradesh if shots are not replaced.
Stylish Shaleena Nathani while talking about styling Deepika Padukone in the song said-“I was also eager to make this song look like nothing you’ve ever seen before. I wanted the clothes to be very different from what you would see in a song like this. Even the swimsuits she is wearing, colors we’ve used. I wanted to do something which hopefully will be relevant for a long time.”
On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in director Atlee’s new film Jawan with Nayanthara and will then collaborate for the first time ever with director Rajkumar Hirani in Dunki with Taapsee Pannu. Both films are scheduled to release next year.
