Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 was the centre of controversy recently after several communities claimed that the song ‘Hud Hud Dabangg’ is derogatory towards saints and sadhus and Hindu religion, Twitter was divided as a section of people hit Twitter trends, ‘BoycottDabangg3’ and some using ‘AwaitingDabangg3’. Not the superstar himself has took charge of the controversy and broke silence.
According to Salman, a certain section of people is trying to gain publicity by dragging the number unnecessarily into a controversy.
"Such controversies are part and parcel of this industry. I don't think there is anything objectionable in the film because of which a controversy can be created," said Salman, at the launch of the "Munna badnaam hua" song of "Dabangg 3" in Mumbai on Saturday evening.

Earlier Salman’s ‘Bajranji Bhaijaan’ got embroiled into controversies over its title but it remained unchanged. Even his production venture ‘Loveyatri’ had to face legal tussles over its title.
"It ("Hud hud Dabangg") is our song since the beginning. People are just trying to get two minutes of fame by linking themselves with us. They try to gain some publicity out of it and they get it too. Fans also support them. So, it's good. I don't have any issues with it," added the star, who was accompanied at the event by Warina Hussain, who shakes a leg with him in "Munna badnaam hua", as well as Saiee Manjrekar, who makes her debut opposite him in the film, apart from the film's director Prabhudheva.
Talking about how the idea of Munna badnaam hua visited him. He said, “We were looking for a 'tode' (befitting reply) of "Munni badnaam hui", and suddenly one day -- at about 1:30 in the morning -- I called up Arbaaz (Khan) and told him that I have the 'tode' of "Munni badnaam hui". So, he came home in an excited manner and I spent an hour with him, after which I told him "Munna badnaam hua" so, on which he abused me and went home," recalled Salman, laughing.
Dabangg 3 will release on December 20, few days before Christmas.
