Deepika Padukone on Besharam Rang: Actor Deepika Padukone finally spoke about all the problems she faced while shooting for the Besharam Rang song from her upcoming movie ‘Pathaan’. The actor appeared in a promotional video shared by YRF and mentioned how she shot the song in freezing cold weather even though it is made to look like a nice, sunny day in the video. “I had to work a lot harder for Besharam Rang. It’s sort of in a way my solo song. The location we were shooting at was really difficult because even though the song looks really summery, bright, and beautiful, it was actually freezing. It was extremely windy. So, we were working in difficult conditions. Making it look like it was beautiful and sunny was the tough part,” she says in the video.
