Prior to its release, Pathaan was involved in controversy because of the song Besharam Rang as many including politicians criticized the song for ‘hurting religious feelings’. PTI has now reported that Hindu Jagran Manch activists protested at Sapna-Sangeeta cinema hall in Indore with saffron flags when the film was released on Wednesday. According to eyewitnesses, some protesters reportedly entered the theater building and asked the audience to leave, citing the screening of the film.

Meanwhile, Bajrang Dal activists also protested the screening of Pathaan at the city’s Kastur cinema hall. They reportedly chanted slogans against Shah Rukh Khan. Soon after, police were deployed to both theaters.

PTI quoted Assistant Commissioner of Police Dishesh Agrawal as saying, “Activists from Hindu Jagran Manch and Bajrang Dal have protested against Pathaan film. Therefore, some of the morning shows were cancelled.” When asked about further shows from Pathaan, he added that an appropriate decision will be made taking into account the public order situation.
