Besharam Rang: Deepika Padukone’s Besharam Rang, a much-awaited item song from the upcoming Shah Rukh Khan movie Pathaan is released on YouTube and as expected the spicy combination of SRK and Deepika makes this #1 trending song on YouTube. However, Deepika is dragged into a national controversy for this latest song from Pathaan, with many calling the song vulgar and an insult to public sentiment.
Deepika Padukone is often in the news for her exquisite attires and formidable fashion sense. Being a vocal celebrity when it comes to speaking against the Indian right-wing usually has its baggage, like becoming a target for online trolling and getting dragged into unnecessary controversies. Most recently, Deepika is now a subject of national-level controversy for allegedly hurting the religious sentiments of people with her new item song Besharam Rang.
The item song in question, Besharam Rang, had already crossed the 20 million views mark on YouTube within the first 24 hours of release making it the number 1 trending song on YouTube India. Deepika can be seen grooving with Shah Rukh Khan in what seems to be like a Mediterranean beach party, offering a feast for eyes in her various beach attires that are skimpy and scintillating.
While many are awe-struck by the deadly combo of fully jacked Sha Rukh Khan and scantily clad Deepika Padukone, a particular attire of Deepika from the video song didn’t bode well with a section of her fans. As shown in the screen grab from the song, Deepika can be seen romancing SRK in a saffron-colored three-piece beach dress, the color of this bikini is now a subject of national controversy. Many who call it vulgar are claiming that Saffron is a holy color for many Indians, and venting that to see such a star actress put on those colors for a vulgar song like Besharam Rang is disgusting and very disappointing. However, many jumped to defend Deepika and praised her for mercury rising expressions and bold dance moves. Deepika and SRK’s Pathaan is scheduled to be released on 25th January 2023 in theaters only. We are yet to get information on the OTT release of the movie in 2023. We have included the video below for you to watch and judge yourself.
