Besharam Rang Song Controversy: In the midst of the controversy related to Shahrukh Khan’s film ‘Pathan’, now a video of Union Minister Smriti Irani is going viral on social media, which has created a controversy, because in the video, Smriti Irani is also seen wearing a saffron colored bikini.
A 1998 video of Union Minister Smriti Irani also joined the online debate on the film ‘Pathaan’ on Friday.
In this video, Smriti Irani is seen wearing a saffron colored bikini. Irani’s swimsuit video has been pointed out by many as one of the displays of double standards by those criticizing Deepika Padukone’s bikini. This video is of Miss India Beauty Pageant 1998.
TMC spokesperson Riju Dutta posted the video, with a caption in Hindi that “The hate-mongering idiots of the Boycott Squad who wants to Boycott Shah Rukh Khan for “Bhagwa Rang on a Bikini” in Besharm Rang need to immediately boycott, Smriti Iran , because she wore a “Bhagwa Bikini” in 1998, but she’s a Union Cabinet Minister. Why No Action on Her??”
In fact, BJP and Hindutva organizations have objected to actress Deepika Padukone’s saffron colored dress in the song ‘Besharam Rang’ from the film. They say that the sentiments of Hindus have been hurt by terming the saffron-coloured dress as ‘Besharam Rang’ shameless colour.
