Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s latest film Dabangg 3 has been affected by the nationwide protests against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) but the actor said that for him the safety of his fans is more important than the money his film makes.

Talking about Dabangg 3, Salman Khan said that for the film to do well in such troubled times is remarkable. He gave the entire credit to his fans who went and watched the film. The actor further said that there has been no collection from the North because of the imposition of Section 144 in several places. The Dabangg star said that the security of the people is a priority over Dabangg 3.
Meanwhile, Sonakshi Sinha, who is the lead actress of the film, had earlier said that the CAA protests are more important than the film and its collection. She also said that she is happy that the entire country has come together and protested against CAA.
