It’s no secret that director Abhinav Kashyap’s parting with Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan after Dabangg wasn’t an amicable one. So for him to have Ranbir say the dialogue “Sirf Chulbul naam rakhne se koi Dabangg nahin bann jata” in the trailer of Besharam has got the goat of Salman’s fans, who are hitting the dislike button like nobody’s business.
If that isn’t enough, fans feel Ranbir Kapoor has also poked fun at Shahrukh Khan in the trailer. The trailer begins with Ranbir peeing in a sarson ka khet and singing “Tujhe dekha toh yeh jaana sanam”, the popular song from SRK’s all-time hit Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.
The result is that the trailer has got more than 6000 dislikes at the time of this story. The likes in comparison are marginally more at a little over 8000.
Director Abhinav Kashyap is quoted as saying, “There is nothing offensive, the film is about an irreverent guy. Some fans have taken it personally and are coming up with atrocious comments. We are not perturbed by it.”
The viewers also seem grossed out by the film’s toilet humour. There’s much crotch scratching, pelvic thrusts and even a urinating scene to put them off.
