The controversy started when the Besharam Rang song was released on December 12 .There was objection raised by Madhya Pradesh minister Dr Narottam Mishra to Deepika Padukone wearing a saffron bikini in this song. However, fans have loved the song and the sizzling chemistry between Deepika and Shah Rukh Khan.

वेशभूषा बेहद आपत्तिजनक है और गाना दूषित मानसिकता के साथ फिल्माया गया है।

गाने के दृश्यों व वेशभूषा को ठीक किया जाए अन्यथा फिल्म को मध्यप्रदेश में अनुमति दी जाए या नहीं दी जाए,यह विचारणीय होगा।
