By Himanshu Mishra: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has advised the BJP leaders to refrain from making any "unnecessary remarks" on films, sources told India Today. PM Modi apparently passed the diktat during the BJP national executive meeting held on January 16 and 17 in Delhi.

As per sources, PM Modi said "some people give statements on some film" which plays on TV and in media all day. The prime minister asked the party workers to avoid making "unnecessary statements".

PM Modi's remark came amid calls for a boycott of the movie Pathaan, starring Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. Pathaan is scheduled for release on January 25, 2023. Several BJP leaders, including Ram Kadam and Narottam Mishra, have been vocal in their criticism over the use of saffron costumes in the film.

Maharashtra BJP leader Ram Kadam had questioned the filmmakers if the movie was a ploy to gain "cheap publicity" or whether there was a conspiracy behind their decision. The BJP leader had added that since the state of Maharashtra has a BJP government which follows the Hindutva ideals, the government will not allow any film or serial to run which insults Hindutva emotions.

Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh minister Narottam Mishra fumed over the use of saffron costumes in the film. He had said that the film contains some objectionable scenes, and threatened to ban Pathaan in Madhya Pradesh if those shots were not replaced.

Fine, that he said something like this...only...what is perceived as "unnecessary"?

(I guess, he wants to watch Pathaan, too ... in a theatre near him...ok, just kidding).
