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.

In the film, Sages have been depicted as dancing with @BeingSalmanKhan in a hideous and objectionable manner on the bank of a river. Some Sages are shown playing guitar in a western style. pic.twitter.com/QxUOZaCJRW

The film depicts the story of a happy-go-lucky, but fearless cop, Chulbul Pandey, who returns once again to go face-to-face with Balli Singh, a criminal.
