MUMBAI: As per reports, scenes of Deepika Padukone in a golden swimsuit have been reportedly censored as day after a notice was issued by the CBFC.
The report read- apart from Deepika’s “side pose (partial nudity),” the close up shot of buttocks and visuals of sensuous dance movements during the lyrics ‘Bahut tang kiya’ were removed or curtailed and replaced with “suitable shots”. However, it is unclear whether or not the shots of the orange bikini, which led to a huge backlash, have been retained.
The CBFC had ordered many changes in the controversial song Besharam Rang. Ever since its release the song has been the might of the critics- the BJD activists or BJP leaders.
Earlier in the day, members of right-wing outfits Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal created a ruckus at a mall in Ahmedabad and tore posters and other publicity material to protest the release of Pathaan.
Several politicians including Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra and the state legislative assembly’s speaker Girish Gautam, have opposed to Deepika Padukone’s “saffron” bikini and SRK’s “green” shirt in the song, calling for its “rectification”.
Pathaan the fourth rendition of Salman Khans ‘Tiger’. The trailer of the movie will be released on 10 January. The movie stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham along with Shah Rukh Khan who returns to the silver screen after a gap of four years.
