after Home Minister of Madhya Pradesh Narottam Mishra and BJP MLA Ram Kadam criticized and objected to Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone song Besharam RangBengali actor and Trinamool Congress chief Nusrat Jahan expressed his support for the same.
In an interview with NDTV, Nusrat said: “People have a problem with everything. They have a problem with women wearing hijab. They have a problem with women wearing bikinis…”
The actor-turned-politician called the whole situation “a well-planned conspiracy”. He said. “It’s not about anyone’s ideology. We are talking about the party in power, which is trying to create such an image among a group of people. So whatever they are doing, they are nothing spiritual, religious, just a well-planned conspiracy. That’s why they talk about culture, bikini-wearing women.”
Nusrat also criticized how ministers try to control life by telling women what to wear and how to talk. “They have a problem with women wearing hijab. They have a problem with women wearing bikinis. What they are trying to do… in what is called the new, developed India these days is very scary. I fear where it will take us all in times to come,” he added.

Earlier, Mishra had raised objections and said that the song was shot with a “dirty mentality”. He told PTI.The costumes of the song are unacceptable at first sight. It is clearly visible that the song of the movie Pathaan has been made with a dirty mindset.”
He added: “And that’s why I think the title of this song ‘Besharam Rang’ itself is also objectionable and the way saffron and green have been worn, the colors of the song, the lyrics and the title of the film are not peaceful. “.
Shah Rukh spoke about the ongoing controversy at the Kolkata International Film Festival and said:I read somewhere that negativity increases social media consumption and thereby increases its commercial value. Such pursuits encapsulate the collective narrative, making it divisive and destructive.”
Directed by Siddharth Anand, Pathan all set to hit theaters on January 23rd.
