Adipurush: Kathmandu’s Mayor opposes Nepal court’s order to lift ban on Prabhas, Kriti Sanon starrer controversial film

Om Raut’s directorial venture ‘Adipurush’ is facing many controversies and bans. ‘Adipurush’, which was released worldwide on 16th June, opened to a bumper collection but the film was slammed by the public. The film’s release date was pushed from January 12, 2023 to June 16, 2023 due to poor VFX. The trailer was released after changing the VFX and got mixed reactions from the audience. Amidst all this, the Nepal court has lifted the ban on Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan starrer ‘Adipurush’ but the mayor of Kathmandu wants to defy the order as he is against the screening of the film.

Kathmandu’s mayor defy Nepal court’s decision to lift ban on ‘Adipurush’

On June 22, the Nepal court lifted the ban on several Hindi films, including Adipurush. The court has ordered the authorities that there should be no obstruction in the screening of films passed by the censor board. But the Mayor of Kathmandu Balendra Shah has a problem with the screening of ‘Adipurush’ as Sita is being described as ‘Bharat ki Beti’ in the film, due to which he is expressing his anger. He is even ready to accept the punishment for disobeying the court’s order.

Balendra Shah has shared a post on Facebook in which he wrote, “The film’s writer said that Nepal was under India, this clearly shows India’s ill intention. To term this as a stunt by the Nepal government and to issue an order by the court in favour of screening the movie means, to accept that Nepal was once under India’s rule, the court and the government are both the slaves of India.”

Reason behind the ban

On Monday (19 June), the Nepal court banned ‘Adipurush’ along with several other Hindi films. The reason for the ban was the controversial dialogue of the film in which Sita was shown as the daughter of India, while according to mythological texts, Sita was born in Janakpur, which is located in Southern Nepal. But there is no mention of Nepal in the film. However, the ban on granting permission by the Central Board has been lifted.
