Guwahati: The controversy over Shah Rukh Khan’s next film ‘Pathaan’ does not seem to be ending. Amid outrage from politicians and right-wing supporters over the song ‘Besharam Rang’ in the movie, a Hindu seer from Ayodhya has made shocking comments on Khan, who is the leading actor in the movie along with Deepika Padukone.
A seer named Paramhans Acharya, who’s reportedly a saint from Tapasvi Chhavni, made startling commentary on the controversy when he said that he would even go to the extent of burning Shah Rukh Khan alive.
Paramhans Acharya on Tuesday said that the saffron colour has been insulted in the ‘Besharam rang’ song.
“People of our Sanatan Dharma are protesting continuously regarding this. Today we have burnt the poster of Shahrukh Khan. If I get to meet the film Jihadi Shah Rukh Khan, I will burn him alive,” the seer said.
Talking to reporters, Jagadguru Paramhans Acharya of Tapasvi Chhawani also said that he would defend in court anybody who will “burn” the actor.
The seer also called for a ban on the film in theatres and added that if the film is screened in any cinema hall, then that cinema hall will be burned down.
“They have insulted our Bhagwa rang (saffron colour). Such films should be boycotted…Shah Rukh Khan has made no web series against the Prophet because he has no guts… He only insults Sanatan Dharma. Insulting Sanatan Dharma has been made a means of earning money. If Sanatan Dharma is insulted, then a death sentence will be given. I will burn Shah Rukh alive if I see him,” Paramhans Acharya said.
Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone’s song titled ‘Besharam Rang’ depicting a dance sequence has triggered controversy since its release.
The song is a dance sequence composed by Vishal-Sheykhar with lyrics by Kumaar.
Helmed by Siddharth Anand, ‘Pathaan’ is scheduled to hit theatres on January 25, 2023.
