Former cricketer Laxman Sivaramakrishnan slams Salman Khan's song Yentamma from Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan for inappropriate use of mundu


Former India spinner Laxman Sivaramakrishnan slammed Salman Khan's outfit in the recently launched song Yentamma from his upcoming film Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan. With over 32 million views on YouTube, the song also featuring Venkatesh Daggubati has taken over the internet. Salman, Ventakesh and Ram Charan, who has a cameo in the song, are seen wearing South Indian-style clothes. This didn't go down well with Sivaramakrishnan who slammed the makers for degrading South Indian culture. 

In a tweet after Yentamma's release, Sivaramakrishnan pointed out the allegedly inappropriate use of mundu (dhoti). Retweeting a post on the song, he accused the makers of showing a classical South Indian attire in a 'disgusting manner'. "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," the tweet read.

In another tweet, he 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 realise, no footwear inside the temple premises. Appealing to @CBFC_India to consider to BAN this."

In the song, Yentamma, Salman, Venkatesh, Ram Charan and other male actors use their respective dhotis to form a dance step. It also features the female leads of Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan-Pooja Hegde, Shehnaaz Gill, Palak Tiwari and Vinali Bhatnagar. 

Vishal Dadlani and Payal Dev are the singers of Yentamma. The song has been written by Shabbir Ahmed and composed by Payal Dev. Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, directed by Farhad Samji, releases on April 21.
