On January 5, members of Bajrang Dal, part of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), caused a commotion at Alpha One Mall in Vastrapur, Ahmedabad during the promotion of the film. The Bajrang Dal members took down pictures of Shah Rukh Khan and his co-stars during their protest.

The protesters also threatened with the mall authority that if this movie is released, they will start an even fiercer protest. The protesters were captured in video damaging mall property. A video shared by the VHP showed protesters shouting slogans and tearing up posters and large cutouts of Pathaan’s star cast. The controversy started after the Home Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Narottam Mishra, expressed his objections to one of the film’s songs, released as Besharam Rang. Mishra said, “The costumes in the song are objectionable at first glance. It is clearly visible that the song of the movie ‘Pathaan’ was shot with a dirty mentality.”
