Prabhudheva's Dabangg 3 starring Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and debutante Saiee Manjrekar has landed in trouble with netizens, as several fans have taken offence against a specific scene depicted in the title track - Hud Hud Dabangg. The song features Salman dancing with Sadhus near the Narmada river. While earlier the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti had asked the Central Board of Film Certification to refuse the certification of the film, this controversy has now erupted into a Twitter trend.
Social media users have started opposing the film by trending #BoycottDabangg3, voicing their opinion as to how the film is hurting religious sentiments of Hindus. Shot on the Ghats of Ahilya Fort in Maheshwar with more than 500 background dancers, Hud Hud Dabangg gives an insight into the larger-than-life, bold and even more daring nature of Chulbul, which was never seen before. The song has been choreographed by Shabina Khan, composed by Sajid-Wajid, lyrics are written by Jaleees Sherwani and Danish Sabri. Divya Kumar, Shabab Sabri and Sajid are the singers.
