Protest Against Adipurush; Kathmandu To Halt Screening Of Bollywood Movies From Today

Kathmandu: The screening of Bollywood movies was banned in the Kathmandu Metropolitan area amid a dialogue row.

Reportedly, the decision was taken by the Mayor of Kathmandu, Balendra Shah after an ultimatum to the Indian makers of the film Adipurush urging them to delete a portion where a dialogue refers to Sita as the “daughter of India”.

According to reports, Balendra Shah has alleged that the dialogue is misleading as Sita is believed to have been the daughter of King Janak of Janakpur. The controversy in Nepal is the latest to hit the film which has been in the eye of a controversy over controversial dialogue.

Adipurush, which was released across India on Friday stars Prabhas as Raghav (Ram), Kriti Sanon as Janaki (Sita) and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh (Raavan).
