Jacqueline Fernandez has been facing a lot of backlash lately. Reason? Her new song Ek Do Teen for the movie Baaghi 2. It has been only a couple of days since Baaghi 2’s new peppy track Ek Do Teen featuring Jacqueline Fernandez has come out. In the rehashed version of Tezaab’s Ek Do Teen, Jackie is seen shaking her legs in a manner which offended the Tezaab director as well as many retro lovers. Apart from facing backlash on social media, the song is also expected to face legal action from N Chandra, who directed the original number. He is unhappy with the new number and called it absolutely crass and a sex act.
Amid this, Jacqueline Fernandez’s Race 3 co-star Salman Khan has come out in support of the actress. Extending his support to her, he tweeted, “Loved d song, Jackie has done full justice 2 d legendary moves of Saroj khan difficult to match Madhuri. Nice 2 see Varun n Jackie to our songs makes us proud n keeps d songs alive n fans listening, dancing n having a blast. Makes me proud . Enjoy Karo !”

He also praised Varun Dhawan who played the double role in "Judwaa2" that released last year; the remake of Salman's cult film "Judwaa".
On Tuesday, Tezaab director N Chandra raised objections on this revamped version of Ek Do Teen. He said, “She (Saroj Khan) came to me and said, 'Have you seen what they're doing to our Ek Do Teen number?' I had no clue. Saroj ji 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”
Mr Chandra further added, “ 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... Saroj ji and I are definitely taking action”.
The remake of "Ek Do Teen" featuring Jacqueline and Prateik Babbar is a part of the upcoming film "Baaghi 2". The song was originally picturised on Madhuri in the film "Tezaab", choreographed by Saroj Khan. After the song released on YouTube on Monday, the video received much negative feedback from fans on social media.
