Salman Khan has been actively sharing every update of the shoot of his upcoming film Dabangg 3 on the social media forums, and now fresh reports have surfaced that the shoot of the action drama has landed with legal trouble.
According to a report in DNA The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has served notice to the production team of Salman Khan's Dabangg 3, asking them to remove two film's set pieces constructed inside Jal Mahal in Mandu, Madhya Pradesh. The notice states that the sets constructed by the makers of the film were in violation of the Ancient Monument and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act 1958 as well as other rules.Â
In addition to this, a stone figurine at the fort located on the banks of the Narmada river in Maheshwar town too is reported to have gotten damaged on Sunday while removing the set. Turns out some heavy objects apparently hit the statue and a part of it broke.Â
Mandu Sub Circle, ASI Junior Conservation Assistant Prashant Patankar too confirmed that the copies of notice have been forwarded to Dhar collector and other officials.
The ASI official further warned the filmmakers that the permission to shoot would be terminated if the directives are not followed at the earliest.
"I have taken cognisance of the matter and issued directives to Khargone district collector, superintendent of police and sub-divisional magistrate ( SDM). We had given permission to the shooting of 'Dabangg-3' in Maheshwar to highlight the tourism potential of this historic town. If something went wrong during the shooting of the film, then the steps against the people concerned will be taken", said Madhya Pradesh Culture minister, MP Culture Minister Vijaylaxmi Sadho as quoted by DNA.
Ironically, Maheshwar marksÂ Salman's birthplace who plays a cop in the film and shot a song from Dabangg 3 in the city on the Narmada ghats.
