Vivek Agnihotri took to his Twitter handle on Wednesday to share a clip of the song ‘Besharam Rang’ from Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone’s Pathaan. While, he edited the clip with a video of a young girl speaking about obscene scenes in films and how that affects women, he also issued a ‘warning’.

By sharing the video, he wrote, ““WARNING:#PnV video against Bollywood. Don’t watch it if you are a Secular.” In the video, girl can be seen asking why people wear such proactive clothes and show such moves. She asked in Hindi, “Why do you do this? For money?” She concludes by requesting filmmakers to change their scripts and direction.
However, netizens trolled him brutally for his ‘hypocrisy’ and flooded the comment section with the old tweets of Agnihotri about talking about celebrating a woman’s body. Social media users also reminded him of the film Hate Story which was directed by him in 2012. Sharing the poster of Hate Story, one user wrote, “This movie is directed by you.” Another user wrote, “Hypocrisy no.5 @vivekagnihotri if you really think like this then doesn’t this affect the children and gives wrong influence on youth ?!”
After the release of the first song from Pathaan – Besharam Rang, the track led to Pathaan facing boycott calls. Earlier, Madhya Pradesh minister Narottam Mishra had also threatened to ban Pathaan’s release in the state. Pathaan, featuring Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in lead roles, will be released on January 25, 2023.
Meanwhile, Vivek Agnihotri is currently working on his upcoming film ‘The Vaccine War’ which is slated to release on August 15, 2023, in more than 10 languages.
