Billu: The line in Marjaani ''Rab ke hujoor main kasme bhi khaali, duniya ki auni-bonni rasme nibhaali' offended a certain group of people who attacked SRK's house. The problem was that the word huzoor has two meanings. One is the Prophet (Peace Be upon Him) and the other is ‘in presence of’. The song referred to the second meaning, as Shah Rukh clarified.
Rang De Basanti: The scene with the horses at a carnival in Punjab didn’t go down too well with the Sikh community because of which it was removed from the film. It apparently hurt religious sentiments, since it was filmed in the middle of a festival celebration.

When Deepa Mehta was shooting by the Ganges, angry Hindu mobs protested against the film by destroying the set and equipment and threatening Deepa Mehta for making an “anti-Hindu” film. She was compelled to shoot in Sri Lanka.
Namastey London: Sexy, long-legged Katrina wore a skirt while shooting for the film on location at the Ajmer Dargah Sharif. Obviously and understandably so, it didn’t go down too well with the Dargah community and she was asked to be clothed from head to toe. The scene in the film was snipped too.
