Bollywood’s latest hit song “Besharam Rang” has been gaining widespread attention ever since its release. From sparking outrage to being labeled as a Bollywood comeback, the song has been creating a ruckus onlne and offline.

Starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, the sizzling number showcase the Piku star serenading Khan in exotic Spain as the duo turn the heat on with their chemistry in the first song.

However, the song has disappointed many fans and prominent figures. Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra also expressed his displeasure and called out Padukone's skimpy wardrobe.

As quoted by the news agency ANI, the minister said, “The costumes in the song at first glance are objectionable. It is clearly visible that the song of the film Pathaan has been shot with a dirty mindset. I don't think this is right, and I will tell the director and makers of the film to fix it. Earlier also Deepika Padukone came in the support of Tukde Tukde Gang at JNU and that's why her mentality has come in front of everyone before.”

Earlier, Chandrashekhar Tiwari, President of the Indian party Sanskriti Bachao Manch, also protested against the song and members of his group protested against the lead actors.

Moreover, Bollywood Hungama reported that several protests were staged against the film as well. The outlet reported that a group named Veer Shivaji group planned protests on the streets, at a road intersection, in Indore where they burnt the effigies of Khan. 

The song itself is composed by Vishal-Sheykhar with lyrics by Kumaar. The peppy track showcases the sizzling chemistry between Shah Rukh and Deepika. Helmed by Siddharth Anand, Pathaan is scheduled to hit theatres on January 25, 2023.
