Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) will not oppose the Shah Rukh Khan's spy-thriller 'Pathaan' for the "time being" as changes have been made in the movie, said VHP spokesperson Shriraj B Nair.

Notably, 'Pathaan' landed in a controversy after its song 'Besharam Rang' was released.

On January 5, members of Bajrang Dal created a ruckus at Alpha One Mall in Ahmedabad's Vastrapur during the promotion of the film. The Bajrang Dal members during their protest tore down pictures of Shah Rukh Khan as well as his co-stars.

The controversy started after Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra, aired his objections to one of the songs of the movie, released as 'Besharam Rang'.

'Pathaan' is part of Aditya Chopra's ambitious spy universe and stars SRK, Deepika and John Abraham.
