“Fix Costumes Or…”: Madhya Pradesh Minister On Deepika Padukone’s Song

Narottam Mishra, the home minister for Madhya Pradesh, expressed displeasure today over actor Deepika Padukone wearing a bikini in a song from the movie “Pathaan,” and stated that the government might consider preventing the screening of the movie if certain sequences were not “fixed.”

The state BJP government’s spokesperson, Mr. Mishra, said that Ms. Padukone had supported the “tukde tukde gang” as evidenced by the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) case. Following the recent release of the song “Beshram Rang” from the Shah Rukh Khan movie, Mr. Mishra made his statement.

According to him, the bikini in the song are “highly objectionable,” and it is obvious that the video for this song was produced with a “contaminated mentality.”

“I would request to correct the scenes and her (Ms Padukone’s) costumes (in the song), otherwise whether this film should be allowed in Madhya Pradesh or not will be a question to be considered,” Mr Mishra told reporters in Indore’s Mhow district.

He claimed, “As shown in the JNU case, Padukone has been a supporter of the tukde tukde gang.” The term “tukde-tukde gang,” which was created following a demonstration in Delhi’s JNU in 2016, is frequently used by BJP officials and right-wing organisations.

On January 25, the action thriller “Pathaan” will be released. Mr. Mishra also threatened legal action against the Ramayana-based Bollywood film “Adipurush” creators in October if portions depicting Hindu holy characters in the “wrong” way were not cut.

After receiving complaints from right-wing organisations, he instructed the police to open an investigation into a poster for the documentary “Kaali” by Leena Manimekalai in July.
