The uproar around the ‘Pathaan’ song, according to actor Prithviraj, is terrible. Besharam Rang, a song featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, sparked outrage as right-wing activists and political figures criticised Deepika’s outfit.
The controversy surrounding the ‘Pathaan’ song, according to actor Prithviraj, who will be seen in the next film ‘Kaapa,’ is regrettable. The actor noted that it was unfortunate that an art form had received such harsh criticism.
The song ‘Besharam Rang,’ featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, sparked outrage as right-wing activists and political figures criticised Deepika’s clothing in the video.
The colour of Deepika’s bikini nearly became a national issue, with protesters burning effigies of both Shah Rukh Khan and the actress.
Meanwhile, Prithviraj, who attended the ‘Kaapa‘ news conference, seemed to be unaware of the contentious remarks made by Kerala Chalachithra Academy Chairman Renjith at the IFFK site.
Aparna Balamurali, who was present at the press conference, expressed her delight at being considered for a role in the film, which was initially designed with Manju Warrier in mind.
She stated, “That was a total fangirl moment. Manju chechi was unable to take up this duty due to unforeseen circumstances. But I am pleased and delighted to say that I was considered for the part after that.”
Dileesh Pothan, who will play an important part in the film, stated that he has always wanted to work with a great filmmaker like Shaji Kailas.
He stated, “Shaji Kailas first approached me for Kaduva, but I was unable to collaborate on the film owing to prior obligations. I chose Kaapa because I wanted to know how Shaji Kailas operates.”
