Soon after this statement, he tweeted about speaking to SRK over a call at 2am. Himanta Biswa Sarma wrote, “Bollywood actor Shri @iamsrk called me and we talked today morning at 2 am. He expressed concern about an incident in Guwahati during screening of his film. I assured him that it’s the duty of the state government to maintain law & order. We’ll inquire and ensure no such untoward incidents.” A few days ago, Bajrang Dal activists had stormed a theater at Narengi in the city where ‘Pathaan’ would be screened and tore down the film’s posters and burnt them.
Directed by Sidharth Anand, ‘Pathaan’ also features Deepika Padukone and John Abraham. The film has been facing a lot of flak over Deepika’s saffron bikini in the song ‘Besharam Rang’. After several cuts suggested by the CBFC, ‘Pathan’ will hit the screens on January 25.
