Bollywood movies have known to liven up a faded out sport and bring them into the spotlight, but in this instance, the film has managed to earn the wrath of the sportspersons. Sushil Kumar has joined his compatriot Yogeshwar Dutt in protest against the movie Commando 3 which shows wrestlers in a demeaning manner.

Commando 3, starring Vidyut Jamwal contains a scene where a wrestler is seen molesting a minor in the public which has angered the likes of Sushil Kumar and Yogeshwar Dutt.

Dutt was the first to retaliate with a couple of tweets expressing his frustration on the manner in which wrestlers have been shown in the film.

Sunil Dutt backed up his fellow sportsman by aligning with the Olympic medal winner’s views. He stated:

“I strongly condemn this scene as wrestlers are respectable people of the society with good moral standing, Filmmakers must apologise for portraying wrestlers in a bad light and must remove that particular scene from the movie,” 

“I strongly oppose the film and also urge everyone to oppose, as the film is portraying wrestlers in a bad way. The filmmakers haven’t done research on how wrestlers conduct themselves. I demand the removal of the objectionable scene,”
