Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan: why Yentamma featuring Salman, Ram Charan and Venkatesh is facing a ban threat? Find out.
Has Yentamma song featuring Salman Khan, Venkatesh in bright yellow shirts, mundu and sunglasses joined by the energetic Ram Charan in same outfit hurt sentiments of people from south and degraded their culture?
Former India leg spinner and commentator Laxman Sivaramakrishnan thinks so.
The former popular cricketer has shared his take on the song Yentamma. Reacting to the song, Laxman Sivaramakrishnan showed his anger due to the allegedly inappropriate use of mundu (dhoti), saying that it is “highly ridiculous” and “degrading the South Indian culture”. Laxman Sivaramakrishnan has made an appeal to the CBFC_India to consider a ban on Yentamma song from Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan.
This is highly ridiculous and degrading our South Indian culture. This is not a LUNGI , THIS IS A DHOTI. A classical outfit which is being shown in a DISGUSTING MANNER https://t.co/c9E0T2gf2d

Laxman Sivaramakrishna re-shared a tweet, which had a glimpse of the song, and wrote, “This is highly ridiculous and degrading our South Indian culture. This is not a LUNGI, THIS IS A DHOTI. A classical outfit which is being shown in a DISGUSTING MANNER."
In no time, a bunch of Twitterati extended their support to the former cricketer and agreed with him. Among many others, a user pointed out that the stars are even wearing shoes inside the temple premises. Replying to the particular tweet, Sivaramakrishnan wrote, “Nowadays people do anything for money. Won’t they research what is a Lungi and a Dhoti. Even if it’s a set, it’s being projected as a temple. People associated with the movie should realize, no footwear inside the temple premises. Appealing to @CBFC_India to consider to BAN this.”
Having said that, it is worth mentioning here that, so far, neither Salman nor the makers of KKBKKJ have responded to the veteran cricketer’s remark.
Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan (KKBKKJ), is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language action film directed by Farhad Samji and produced by Salman Khan Films. The film stars Salman Khan, Venkatesh, Pooja Hegde and Jagapathi Babu with an ensemble supporting cast.
It is scheduled for release on Eid this year - 21 April 2023.
