Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone’s Pathaan To Undergo Revisions; CBFC Asks Makers For Changes That Adhere To Religious Sentiments

After weeks of facing objections from right-wing political parties and their followers of Deepika Padukone wearing a saffron swimwear, a colour that is associated with Hindutva and Hindu religion, it is being reported that Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback film Pathaan will have to undergo revisions. If reports are to be believed, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has asked the makers to adhere to religious sentiments.

According to India Today, the Pathaan was recently submitted to the examination committee for certification. Post-screening, they were asked to tweak certain scenes and implement changes in songs. CBFC has also asked the makers of Pathaan to send them a revised version of the film before it releases in the theatres in January 2023.  ALSO READ: Shah Rukh Khan Recalls His Reaction When Aditya Chopra Offered Him Pathaan, Says, ‘Quickly Jumped On It, Worked Out And Built A Body’


Produced by Yash Raj Films, the makers are yet to release an official statement regarding the issue. The entire row started when several political leaders and Hindu organizations started raising an issue with Deepika wearing a saffron bikini. They claimed that her wearing that swimsuit was insulting Hindutava. From receiving death threats to protests halting the shoot of his upcoming projects, the actors have been receiving backlash from every corner. 

Directed by Siddharth Anand, the action-thriller also stars John Abraham in a negative role. While, many fans are eager for the release of the trailer, it is being reported that it will be 2:30 minutes long, complete with adrenaline-raising action moments.  ALSO READ: Shah Rukh Khan Witty Comeback When Asked ‘Chopper Udaana Kab Seekha Aapne?’ Wins Over The Internet!- Check It Out
