Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan has had to cancel his ‘the Da-Bangg Tour to Nepal’, scheduled to take place in Kathmandu on 10 March, in the wake of threats from a section led by Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav.’
Other Bollywood stars, who were expected to accompany him were Sonakshi Sinha, Kriti Sanon, Prabhudheva, Daisy Shah, Meet Bros and Maniesh Paul, reported IANS.
However, Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’ of the CPN-Maoist, a splinter of CPN (Maoist Centre) last week demanded cancellation of the show and called all the nationalist forces to unite and oppose against the event saying it amounts to ‘expansion of cultural intervention on Nepali soil’.
Salman’s show was expected to include over 100 local artists, who were scheduled to perform before 30,000 people. The tickets were expected to cost between Rs 3,000 and Rs 30,000.
