Shah Rukh Khan's 'Pathaan' gets new threats from Bajrang Dal against the film's release in Gujarat
Reportedly, the Bajrang Dal has now issued new threats to Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan.
The roadblocks for Pathaan seems to have no end. The Bajrang Dal has issued new threats against the release of Shah Rukh Khan's eagerly anticipated movie "Pathaan" in the Gujarat state only days before its scheduled premiere.
A report from TimesNow stated that, the organisation reportedly stated that it will not permit the release of the movie in the state, regardless of the Censor Board's approval. This new threat comes after the political organisation protested the film's debut by vandalizing a mall, destroying posters, holding rallies, and even burning effigies.
Reacting to the fresh wave of threats issued by Bajrang Dal party workers, filmmaker Ashoke Pandit told Times Now, that he fully condemns this behaviour.
According to him, the country works under a constitution, a law, and enforcing agencies. It is now the duty of the state government to take strict action against these people. He also said that, already the authorities have cleared the film and nothing is required more than that.
If the political organisation continued to protest to the film's release, he told them to go to court. He further said those who needs help can turn to the courts. Although they can battle for their rights in court, rather than acting in this way... This has happened before with the films "Padmaavat" and "Udta Punjab," therefore we are aware that it has become routine."
According to reports, Gujarat VHP spokesperson Hitendrasinh Rajput stated the outfit's demands for the removal of the controversial song 'Besharam Rang' from the movie.
