Dabangg 3: Salman challenged to dance with bishops, maulvis

The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti has objected to a song in Dabangg 3 to the tune of which Salman Khan is seen dancing with not only sadhus but also Lord Rama, Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s film Dabangg 3 is mired in controversies before its release. The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has demanded that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) deny certification to the film. The committee said that an attempt has been made to hurt Hindu sentiments in the film’s title song “Hood-Hood Dabangg”.

Maharashtra and Jharkhand convenor of the HJS Sunil Ghanwat said, “The song of the movie Dabangg 3 shows sages dancing in an objectionable manner with Salman Khan. This has hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus. The way Salman Khan has let down our saints, would he dare show mullas and maulvis or padres and bishops dancing like this?”

What Salman does in this song

In this song of the movie Dabangg, Salman Khan is seen dancing with the sadhus on the banks of a river. He also takes blessings from three people masquerading as Lord Rama, Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva.

This is the third part of Salman Khan’s film Dabangg. The original and its sequel were both super hit.

Dabangg 3 will be released on 20 December this year. Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Sai Manjrekar and Kicha Sudeep feature in the main roles of the plot. Kiccha Sudeep is making his debut in a Hindi film as a villain in Dabangg 3.

Hall of shame: Before Dabangg 3

There are instances galore in Bollywood where filmmakers have taken liberties with Hindu symbols of faith. The 2014 film PK featuring Aamir Khan has been the most notorious of them all, casting aspersions on people who chant Vandemataram, mocking Lord Shiva and projecting Hindu gurus in a poor light while also sparing Islam and Christianity with passing, innocuous mentions, and making a veiled attempt of promotion of love jihad.

Before that, OMG had Paresh Rawal directing his atheistic ire at Hindus, again with passing mentions of not-so-holy men in Christianity and Islam. And this is hardly a recent development. Among the stunning flops of Amitabh Bachchan was Prakash Mehra-made Jaadugar (1989), where a guru was a cruel crook. Dabangg 3 is merely another addition to the dubious list.
