An activist has filed a petition in the city civil court seeking deletion of the word ‘Hindustan’ from a song in forthcoming movie Dabangg.

Rajkumar Tak, in his petition, has alleged that the song has used nation’s name hurting the patriotic sentiments of every Indian.

Through his advocate Sushan Kunjuram, Tak has said that he was shocked to hear the promos of the song Munni badnaam hui… “The vulgar item song shows girl called Munni indecently dancing… and one corrupt police officer who in his uniform sings Leh Hindustan hui darling tere liye,” Tak’s petition says.

The petition adds that the producers, director and lyricist have jointly committed “mockery” of our nation, which is “highly objectionable” and “unpardonable”.

Tak’s petition also said the Censor board has neglected and failed to discharge their duties by not noticing the “defaming” lyrics.

The movie, in which Salman Khan plays the lead, will release on September 10. The case is likely to be heard on August 30.
