Watch: Salman Introduces ‘New Item Boy’ in ‘Munna Badnaam Hua’
The much-awaited video of ‘Munna Badnaam Hua’ song from Dabangg 3 just dropped. The song video stars Salman Khan, Warina Hussain and Prabhudeva. Prabhudeva is also directing the film.
In an attempt to break existing stereotypes, the song introduces Salman Khan as the ‘New Item Boy’. Prabhudeva is introduced as ‘New Item Boy 2’. Reminiscent of its original version featuring Malaika Arora, this song is a groovy dance number with a short dance-off sequence between Prabhudeva and Salman.

Even though the song aims to break the misogynistic stereotype of an ‘item girl’, it doesn’t succeed because even as ‘item boys’ Salman Khan and Prabhudeva are not objectified the way Warina Hussain is. If anything, the song is a simple play on the title in order to make it seem new and refreshing.
On 11 November, the audio of ‘Munna Badnaam Hua’ had released. The song title is inspired from the original Dabangg song ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ featuring Malaika Arora.
The song has been sung by Kamaal Khan and for the rap bit, Badshah has lent his voice. Salman had taken to social media to share the song. He wrote, “Kamaal Khan ki aawaaz, Badshah ka rap aur Chulbul ki dabanggayi; suniye #MunnaBadnaamHua
(Link in bio)“
On 14 November, Salman had shared the title track of the film, ‘Hud hud dabangg’.
The song opens with Salman asking his fans to welcome him. It is followed by Bhai dancing with a hundred men in Lucknow. His steps keep getting weirder and weirder.
