    New Delhi (Sputnik): The movie starring Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is a sequel to the 2012 film “Dabangg 2” and the third installment of the “Dabangg” film series. The film also stars actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter Sonakshi. It has garnered controversy for allegedly depicting Hindu culture in a negative light.

    Netizens have demanded a ban on the film and requested the federal watchdog Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to withhold its certification as they feel the movie's title track “Hud Hud Dabangg” insults the religious sentiments of the Hindu community and denigrates saints. The song shows them dancing with guitars in their hands.

    Social media users have asked Salman if he would ever show an Islamic cleric dancing like this.
