Mumbai, Nov 29 (IANS) A Twitter war seems to have erupted over Salman Khan’s upcoming biggie, “Dabangg 3”. Even as #BoycottDabangg3 trended all through Friday morning, after certain sections claimed the film hurts Hindu religious sentiments, a parallel hashtag — #AwaitingDabangg3 — mushroomed on social media, with fans of the superstar tweeting support for his film.

At the last count, #AwaitingDabangg3 has been used by the fans over 1.3 lakh times.

Earlier on Friday, sections of social media were upset with “Dabangg 3”, claiming a scene in the song “Hud hud Dabangg”, which shows saffron-clad sadhus dancing with guitars, is aimed at “maligning” and “insulting” Hindu sentiment and culture. A Bengaluru-based NGO, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, even demanded that the film’s censor certificate be cancelled.

However, it seems like the superstar’s huge fan base is in no mood for a boycott of their much-awaited film. As #AwaitingDabangg3 continues to trend, Salman gears up for the release of his film, which is only weeks away on December 20.

Before that, however, the actor has a special treat in store for fans on Saturday, when a new song of the film — “Munna badnaam” — will be launched in Mumbai. Sources said Salman will join dancing wonder Prabhudheva, who has directed this film, to groove onstage at the do.
