Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Pathaan’ started making headlines for all the wrong reasons when the film’s song ‘Besharam Rang’ was released in December, 2022. Soon after some section of social media users started objecting the clothes and dance sequence in the song, the chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Prasoon Joshi admitted that the film has undergone cuts as per the rulebook.
However, according to Bollywood Hungama, now the three changes has been made in the song ‘Besharam Rang’. The close up shot of buttocks, ‘side pose (partial nudity)’ shots and visuals of sensuous dance movements during the lyrics ‘Bahut tang kiya’ were removed or curtailed and replaced with ‘suitable shots’. The CBFC cut list, however, doesn’t mention how many seconds of shots have been censored. Also it is not clear whether or not the shots of the orange swimsuit, that led to an uproar, have been retained.
After these changes were made, the CBFC granted the censor certificate to the makers of Pathaan on January 2. The film secured a U/A certificate and its length, as mentioned on the certificate, is 2 hours and 26 minutes long. Outlook
