Let us tell you that there was a lot of uproar in the country regarding Shah Rukh-Deepika's film Pathaan. Even, the effigies of Shah Rukh Khan were burnt and some cinema halls were also ransacked. The controversy took such a color that the censor board had to make several cuts in the film. Recently, CM Yogi openly discussed Pathaan in an interview. On the question of seeing Pathaan, CM Yogi Adityanath said, 'Sorry, I am not able to see, nor do I have that much time, because there is a population of 25 crores in the state, I respect artists. I respect writers. We give full respect to anyone who has any talent. We do not have much time to watch films, but we give full respect to any artist or any writer who has any talent, at the personal level as well as at the government level.'
On Pathaan's boycott, he said, 'There was no protest anywhere in UP. At one place there was a mutual quarrel. There a spectator was making a reel of that film. Due to this, the employees of the cinema hall stopped him. In this there was a dispute between those people, apart from this there was no other dispute. We must pay attention to one thing, whenever a film like this comes or a stage like this happens, public sentiments must be respected. Along with the presentation, there should be respect for the feelings for which we want to present and no one should be allowed to incite feelings.'
