Kathmandu, May 25

Salman Khan‘s show, scheduled for this Saturday (May 28) at Kathmandu’s Dasharath Stadium, has been postponed.

According to the director of ODC Entertainment, Simanta Gurung, the concert titled the Dabang Tour was postponed due to poor ticket sales.

“The local elections impacted the sale of tickets. Plus, it might rain too so it is best the event was postponed,” Gurung says.

He says a new date for the Bollywood star’s event would be announced soon.

Gurung adds his company has already spent in excess of Rs 80 million on lights, stage, sound and the performer’s fees. Salman Khan alone is taking Rs 48 million to perform. He was going to be joined by stars like Sonakshi Sinha, Jacqueline Fernandez and Prabhu Deva.

Salman Khan was also meant to travel to Nepal’s popular tourist destination as Nepal’s tourism entrepreneurs believe that this would promote Nepal among Indians.

This is the second time his show has been postponed. The show was cancelled in 2018 citing security risks after Netra Bikram Chand-led Nepal Communist Party said it would obstruct the show.
