Chaos, Utter Chaos!
8 Bollywood Songs Like ‘Besharam Rang’ That Stirred Serious Controversy

In India, it has become very common for people to get offended by movies, tv shows, and even by fashion choices or things done by celebrities. Recently, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra took objection to and spoke publicly against the song ‘Besharam Rang’ from Pathaan featuring Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan. In fact, there’s now an official complaint against the song, for reasons such as obscenity and hurting Hindu sentiments! Honestly, I’m beginning to feel like the words protest, controversy, and ban are India’s favourite words.

But Besharam Rang isn’t the first time that a Bollywood song has been coloured in controversy. Here’s a list of Bollywood tracks that courted trouble.
