Jail scene from ‘Don 2’ movie is misattributed as the ‘Pathaan’ scene
* Watch the scene of Pathan movie, these people fill crores of people with their hatred that Khan doesn’t like saffron colour. And Hindus should watch its film, brothers, those who do not like saffron color, you also dislike it. Push Shahrukh Khan’s Pathan film*
Amid the ‘Besharam Rang’ controversy, a video clip from a movie scene where the hero Shah Rukh Khan when inside the jail is seen saying to the heroine Priyanka Chopra that he is not happy with the colour (saffron) of the uniform, is widely circulated on social media platforms with the claim that the scene is from the movie Pathaan. This video clip is shared with different questions to the movie and the actor but with the common hashtag to boycott the movie Pathaan. An image from this video clip is also being shared with a similar claim. It is questioned, “which prison has saffron instead of white?” Posts with the viral video clip and image can be seen here, here, here and here.
What is the truth?
When searching for the jail scene of Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra, a video from the Youtube channel ‘Adnan Husain’ is found with the title mentioning ‘Don 2 Jail scene’. The visuals from the viral video clip can be seen matching the Youtube video at 2.32 minutes.
When it is clear that the visual is from the movie ‘Don 2’, we proceed to search for the details about the movie to check why saffron coloured uniform is used on prisoners instead of white. The Times of India article review of Don 2 reported that the actor in the movie emerges from Malaysia.
The Jakarta Post article dated 22, August 2017 titled ‘Escaped Malaysian prisoner believed to be in home country: Bali Police’ is found carrying a picture of a prisoner in saffron uniform. And other pictures of prisoners in Malaysia, and Indonesia reveals that their jail uniform is in orange coloured shades.
It is found that the viral video clip of a jail movie scene where Shah Rukh Khan is wearing saffron uniform is not from Pathaan but from Don 2.
