Bollywood star Salman Khan has come out in support of his 'Race 3' co-star Jacqueline Fernandez, who is currently under attack by fans for her remixed version of Madhuri Dixit’s iconic ‘Ek Do Teen’.

The remix version of the song from the upcoming movie ‘Baaghi 2’ shows Jacqueline Fernandez dancing to the iconic Madhuri Dixit song. This hasn’t gone down with many fans, including Tezaab’s director N Chandra, who have criticized the song as well as Jacqueline’s dance moves and expressions.

Sharing the link to the song on his official Twitter handle, Salman wrote, “Loved the song, Jackie has done full justice to the legendary moves of Saroj Khan. Difficult to match Madhuri. Nice to see Varun and Jackie to our songs make us proud n keeps d songs alive n fans listening, dancing n having a blast. Makes me proud. Enjoy Karo!”

The original song was picturised on Madhuri in the film Tezaab, choreographed by Saroj Khan. It was sing by Alka Yagnik.

Chandra even told Quint in an interview, “I can’t believe they’ve done this to Ek Do Teen. It’s crass beyond imagination. And Jacqueline Fernandez doing Madhuri Dixit’s number? Give me a break! It’s like turning the Central Park into a botanical garden. Madhuri danced with such grace and innocence. This number is like a sex act!”

He added that the song’s original choreographer, Khan, is also upset. 

“I met Sarojji at Sridevi’s prayer meeting. It was there that Sarojji marched up to me to tell me about it. Can you imagine how much it had upset her that she needed to vent at such a solemn occasion? Anyway she came to me and said, ‘Have you seen what they’re doing to our Ek Do Teen number?’ I had no clue. Sarojji told me that the makers of Baaghi 2 were doing a new version of Ek Do Teen. She said she will take legal action against it,” Chandra added.
