Earlier, there were reports of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Katrina Kaif being the potential ‘item girls’ in the third instalment of the Dabangg franchise. But now it seems, Dabangg 3 may not have an item song at all.

A source very close to the project wonders why people presume that an item song is mandatory in the Dabangg series.

“Sure, we had Malaika Arora and Kareena Kapoor, one with the ‘Khan’ in her name and the other without, doing an item song each in Dabangg and its sequel. But who said we have to have an item song in every Dabangg film?” one of the most prominent technicians of Dabangg 3 throws a challenge at us.

More probing unearths the very heartening information, that Salman Khan ‘in principle’ is against an item song.

“During these troubled times when women need to be not objectified at all, it’d be most welcoming if someone of Salman’s stature and clout takes a stand against these so-called item songs. And what better platform to protest against itemizing women than Dabangg?” says the source.
