Here’s is what UP CM Yogi Adityanath has to say about Boycott Bollywood trend and Pathaan’s Besharam Rang row – Times of India

UP CM Yogi Adityanath recently opened up about Boycott Bollywood trend and Pathaan’s Besharam Rang row. According to him, filmmakers should be careful with what they depict on screen.
Yogi said that the film director should also take into consideration while making a film that it should not have scenes which could give rise to controversy or hurt public sentiments. He added that any artist, litterateur or anyone with accomplishments should be respected. Uttar Pradesh has also made a policy for films and many films are being made in the state, he told News18.

‘Besharam Rang’ featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone had run into a controversy after BJP ministers and right-wing outfits claimed the song reportedly insulted the saffron colour that is holy for the Hindu community.

Following the same, calls were made to boycott the film as it had allegedly defamed the religion. Not only that, certain cinema halls in parts of the country were vandalised, even on the day of the release of the film on January 25.

However, a week before Pathaan’s release Prime Minister Narendra Modi cautioned BJP leaders from making unnecessary remarks against movies and personalities to grab headlines.

The Siddharth Anand directorial starred Shah Rukh, Deepika and John Abraham in lead roles. The film is doing record-breaking business at the box office.
