Posters of Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan torn down and burnt outside cinemas in India’s Bihar

Pathaan movie posters were torn and set on fire outside a theatre in Bhagalpur, Bihar, on Tuesday, the day before the film’s release. 

Pathaan, a Shah Rukh Khan film, will be screened in Bhagalpur’s Deepprabha cinema.

Young members of Hindu organisations ripped down and set fire to the movie theater’s posters, shouting “Film Chalega Hall Jalega.”

Hindu Organisation members stated:

“The youth said that Hindutva cannot be compromised. Any element that opposes the Sanatan culture will not be tolerated in Bhagalpur including the whole of India.”

Pathaan, according to the members of the organisation, would meet severe hostility if it were to be shown in any theatres in Bhagalpur.

According to Lalan Singh, the manager, some antisocial people burnt the poster opposing the film. 

He went on to explain that a request had been made to the SP and the local police station and that the administration had pledged to provide security.

Satya Ranjan Bora, a right-wing activist, denounced Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan to the police on Monday at Geetanagar police station.

Pathaan became embroiled in controversy with the release of its song Besharam Rang.

Members of the Bajrang Dal tore down photos of Shah Rukh Khan and his co-stars during their protest.

The protesters also told mall management that if the movie is released, they will stage an even more violent protest.

Demonstrators may be seen trashing mall property in a video. In a video produced by the VHP, protesters could be seen chanting slogans, shredded posters, and large cutouts of Pathaan’s actors.
