Veteran actor Asha Parekh has expressed his support Deepika Padukone Among the Pathaan controversies. Parekh addressed the controversy surrounding Deepika’s orange bikini in the song Besharam Rang, claiming that the film’s sole purpose is entertainment and that Bollywood is an easy target.

In an interview with Aaj Tak, Parekh said:Yeh bahut galat hai, film toh film hai. Jiska Mul, Maksad entertainment ha. Ab kisi actress ne, orange pehen liya, ya naam kuch aisa ho gaya toh usse ban kar rahe ha? Ye nahi achha lagta hai. (This is so wrong. The only purpose of the movie is entertainment. Now if an actress wears orange, you’re going to ban it. It’s not a good look.)

The actor, who received the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in September, later said: “Bikini per bawaal nahi tha, yahan toh orange rang ki bikini ko lehkar sawaal uth rahe hai. Mujhe lagta hai ki hamara dimaag ab bandh hota ja raha hai. Hum bahut hi choti soch ke hote ja rahe hai, jo galat hai. Bollywood hamesha ke lie soft target raha hai”. (The argument is not about the bikini but about the orange bikini. I feel we are closing our minds because we are becoming too intimate which is wrong. Bollywood has always been a soft target).

In the song Besharam Rang from Pathaan, Deepika is in an orange monokini and Shah Rukh Khan in a dark shirt. Deepika’s bikini has sparked outrage among politicians who have called for a ban on Pathaan. BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya had said. “Slap them in the stomach, destroy their business, and never watch their movies.” Ram Kadam, Narottam Mishra among others have also expressed their concern about the song.

Pathaan stars John Abraham and releases on January 25.
