THE uproar against Adipurush continues to make waves across the globe. After the film’s dialogues received strong objection on social media, the makers have decided to make changes to the same in the film.
Amid heavy backlash, the makers have now received another bad news. Kathmandu Mayor Balen Shah took to his social media account to announce that all Indian movies including Adipurush have been banned there.
In a note shared in Nepali language, the Mayor wrote, “Indian film Adipurush has dialogue claiming Janaki was India’s daughter. This is objectionable and we had given a three-day ultimatum (to the makers) to correct it. There is no doubt that it is the first duty of every government, government agency, and non-governmental sector and Nepali citizens to protect the national interest by keeping Nepal and its freedom, independence and self-respect intact.”
The note further added, “If the film is shown as it is, it seems that Nepal’s nationality, cultural unity and national identity will be severely damaged and irreparable damage will be done.”
Announcing that all Bollywood films will be banned from screening in Kathmandu, the Mayor wrote, “Due to cultural encroachment on Nepal from that movie, this metropolitan city has attracted serious attention. If the film is allowed to be shown in other areas within the country and abroad, it will establish a misleading fact, so it is prohibited to show any Indian film in the Kathmandu metropolitan city until the objectionable parts are removed from the said film.”
The writer of Adipurush, Manoj Mutashir took to his Twitter to announce that several dialogues from the film will be changed to respect the audiences emotions.
Announcing the team’s decision to change the dialogues, Manoj wrote, “Me and the producer-director of the film have decided that some of the dialogues which are hurting you, We’ll revise them, and they’ll be added to the film this week. May Shri Ram bless you all! #Adipurush #JaiShreeRam.”
Adipurush stars Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, Sunny Singh and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles and is directed by Om Raut.
