Nepal Court Lifts Ban On Bollywood Films Including ‘Adipurush’

Nepal: A Nepal court on Thursday lifted the ban on Hindi films, including Prabhas-starrer Adipurush. The court also asked the authorities to not halt the screening of Hindi movies including ‘Adipurush’ in the cinemas of Nepal.

However, the judgment was not taken well by Kathmandu Mayor Balendra Shah, who first imposed the ban. He said that he is ready to face any punishment but will not allow the screening of the film.

Adipurush and other Hindi films were banned in Nepal on Monday following a controversy over its dialogues, including the mention of Sita (played by Kriti Sanon) as “India’s daughter”. Sita, also referred to as Janaki, is believed by many to have been born in Janakpur in southeast Nepal.
