     14Ghai’s controversial hit presents the ‘villain’ 
     15Sanjay Dutt as exemplifying ‘today’s youth’. 
     16Dutt plays Ballu, a gangster and political 
     17criminal responsible for several assassinations, 
     18who is employed by the film’s main villain, 
     19Roshi Mahanta (Moutho). When Ballu escapes 
     20from prison without divulging the name of his 
     21employer, the police inspector Ramkumar 
     22(Shroff) sends his colleague and girlfriend 
     23Ganga (Dixit) to infiltrate the gang 
     24masquerading as a dancing girl. The film 
     25capitalised on the off-screen history of Dutt 
     26who, shortly after its completion, was arrested 
     27and imprisoned for alleged involvement in the 
     28Bombay communal riots of 1993, an incident 
     29popularly seen as a ‘real life’ re-enactment of 
     30what remains his definitive screen role. It was 
     31also controversial for the accusations of 
     32vulgarity levelled against its megahit song Choli 
     33ke peeche, ‘What’s beneath the blouse’, which, 
     34as a BBC report on the film put it, ‘had all of 
     35India hot under the collar’. Ghai has argued 
     36that the song merely adapts a traditional 
     37Rajasthani folk lyric.
