Salman protagonist Khan Dabangg 3 falls into trouble for hurting religious feelings

A Bengaluru-based NGO, Hindu Janajagritu Smriti, even called the censor board to revoke its censor certificate.

Confused? Listen up! With Dabangg 3 right around the corner, Salman Khan has finally revealed the first look from the biggest song of the upcoming film.

The Maharashtra and Chattisgarh branch of a religious organisation, Hindu Janjagruti Samiti, has asked the CBFC to remove the sequence as "it hurts religious sentiments". In the film, Sages have been depicted as dancing with @BeingSalmanKhan in a ugly and objectionable manner on the bank of a river.

Earlier on Friday, sections of social media were upset with Dabangg 3, claiming that a scene in the song Hud hud Dabangg, which shows saffron-clad sadhus dancing with guitars, is aimed at maligning and insulting Hindu sentiments and culture.

With over 34,000 posts, #BoycottDabangg3 is trending on Twitter requesting Hindus to boycott the film. Accordingly, the hashtag #BoycottDabangg3 began slanting. "Demanding an apology from the film's lead actor and co-producer Salman Khan, a user tweeted: "#BoycottDabangg3.

On Friday, Kid Rock offered up an apparent explanation for his outburst. "I said f*ck that and her. Back in 2008, Kid made his feelings about Oprah known.

Another expressed: "Bollywood is doing all such hopeless things for just distinction and cash".

Above all, the striking part of the song is the confrontation between Salman Khan and Prabhudheva, but we wish the makers could have given us a glimpse of some more of both. "If people scrutinise each and every move like this then how will we make movies?"

Another user asserted that Hinduism owes a lot to these sages who have blessed them useful innovations that the whole world is following now.

Meanwhile, Dabangg 3 also stars Sonakshi Sinha who will be reprising her role of Rajjo - wife of Chulbul Pandey while Saiee Manjrekar will be seen as Chulbul's love interest as Khushi in the past life.

It is set to hit the theaters on December 20.
