Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 3 once again finds itself in the thick of a raging controversy as an antique sculpture was damaged while removing the sets of the movie at the fort located on the banks of river Narmada near Maheshwar. Salman Khan and his crew were shooting for their upcoming movie Dabangg 3 in Maheshwar.
According to the eyewitnesses, the stone figure got damaged when the sets were being removed from the fort. They said that some heavy item hit the idol and a part of it got broken.
Madhya Pradesh Culture Minister Vijaylaxmi Sadho has reassured that necessary action would be taken against those responsible for the incident. “I have taken cognisance of the matter and issued instructions to Khargone district collector, superintendent of police and sub-divisional magistrate ( SDM),” the minister said. She also said that She will visit the spot and take stock of the situation.
Dabangg 3 also received a notice from the Archaeological Survey of India(ASI). ASI has ordered Salman Khan and Dabangg 3 makers to immediately remove the sets put up at Jal Mahal in Mandu, Madhya Pradesh. The notice warned them that the film’s shooting may get canceled if they don’t any action.
Earlier, Dabangg 3 was embroiled in another controversy when photos of a plank being placed over the Shivling surfaced on the internet. The locals accused the Dabangg 3 makers of insulting Hinduism and the Shivling. Later, Salman Khan himself had to come out stating that the plank was meant to protect the Shivling and maintain its sanctity.
