Deepika Padukone’s Saffron Bikini In ‘Besharam Rang’
Shahrukh Khan’s much-awaited film, Pathaan’s son, Besharam Rang got released in December 2022. The song and the sizzling moves of Deepika got appreciated by her fans. However, some even took a dig at the actress for donning a saffron-hued bikini. Several protests were also organised across the country, demanding a ban on the film.
Bigg Boss OTT fame star Urfi Javed is more often than not in news for her bizarre fashion choices. So it comes as no surprise that she irked a few netizens with her yet another topless video. Wishing her fans a ‘Happy Diwali’, Urfi posed topless, covering her modesty with her palms. Many commented on how she should not be posting such stuff on festivals, trying to school her Indian culture.

Urfi clapped back at haters with an even stronger message. She shared an image of Goddess Kali to shut down the criticism and wrote on her Instagram story, “For those saying I’m destroying Indian culture, first go learn about it. Women’s body was never ever s*xualised in Indian culture, it was after the Mughal invasion women were asked to cover up. We worshipped women and their bodies. We used to respect, and gear women. Also, for those who want to learn, I’m happy to teach y’all! Cause I did my homework unlike half of you mofos out there.”
