Amidst the massive row over Deepika Padukone's saffron bikini in Besharam Rang song in Pathan, netizens are trolling Akshay Kumar over his old songs where the saffron-coloured clothes were used.
The controversy started on the internet when a few netizens pointed out the colour of the actress's bikini. It got highlighted after Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra called Deepika's outfit in the song "objectionable" and warned the makers to "correct them" or they will be forced to mull whether to stall the film's release.
He also objected to the saffron and green bikinis which Deepika wore in 'Besharam Rang'.
After that, several Hindu organisations demanded a ban on the film. Even a complaint was registered with the Information and Broadcasting Ministry over the same.
Now, netizens have started to compare the outfit of Deepika and of the actress in Akshay Kumar's song.
"Who will justify this #BesharamRang ???," wrote one user with a still from the song Bhool Bhulaiyaa.
Several others also posted videos of the same song, while others posted a still from the song Gale Lag Ja where Katrina Kaif is wearing a saffron saree. The song has a steamy sequence between Akshay and Katrina.

Meanwhile, former Union Minister and BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Thursday took a jibe at the makers of Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Pathaan', saying they addinng more 'masala' spice to the fim, they may have introduced 'gutka masala' (chewable tobacco), which is injurious to health.
Speaking to ANI, Naqvi said, "They (the makers) may have added gutka masala while adding more glamour and spice to the film. But gukta masala is injurious to public health. Unfortunately, some makers, in the name of adding more glamour to their films, introduce an opium which is harmful for the society." "I am not saying our films shouldn't have any political influences and they should not have stylised or glamourous content. Add glamour all you want to your films but don't add gutka masala, as it could be harmful for the society," the former Union minister added.
