Kathmandu, June 14
The Sikkim government of India has banned the shows of Kabaddi 4, a superhit Nepali film, within the state.
Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang says his government banned the film considering the sentiments of its citizens and other organisations.
The film, which has been one of the biggest financial successes in Nepal’s cinema history, was expected to get released in the Indian state whose around 60 per cent of people speak Nepali as their mother tongue.
However, Buddhist leaders in the state had asked the government to bar Kabaddi 4 as some of the scenes hurt Buddhist sentiments.
The Kathmandu District Administration Office in Nepal has also received a similar complaint.
