The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has issued notice to a production firm involved in the shooting of Salman Khan's upcoming Dabangg 3 in Indore.

The organization has asked the production company to remove two set pieces constructed in the Jal Mahal in Mandu, Madhya Pradesh. 

The notice also stated that permission for the shooting would be withdrawn if the directive were not followed.

The notice was issued on Sunday to M/s Dream World Movies and Production, according to a report by the Press Trust of India agency.

The notice stated that construction of the sets on the archaeological site was a violation of the Ancient Monuments and Archaelogical Sites Surveys Act 1958.

Another violation the filmmakers have been accused of is damaging a figurine mounted at the fort in Mandu on the banks of the Narmada river.

Salman Khan was shooting for the title track of Prabhu Deva's film at the location.

Dabangg 3 is being directed by Prabhu Deva and features Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, among others.
