Kathmandu Metropolitan City Takes Stand Against Controversial Dialogue in “Adipurush”

Kathmandu Metropolitan City Mayor, Balendra Shah, has made a bold announcement that has caught the attention of film enthusiasts and the public alike. He declared that Hindi films will be banned from screening in Nepal’s capital until a specific portion of dialogue is removed from the highly anticipated film “Adipurush,” directed by Om Raut. The movie is a modern retelling of the revered epic, Ramayana.

Mayor Shah took to social media to convey his decision, giving a three-day ultimatum for the requested changes to be made. He wrote on his Facebook wall, “Until the line ‘Janaki is a daughter of India’ is removed not just in Nepal but also in India, no Hindi films will be allowed to run in Kathmandu Metropolitan City.”

The decision comes as a response to a contentious dialogue in the trailer of “Adipurush,” where Sita, the beloved character from Ramayana, is referred to as the daughter of India. This statement contradicts the traditional belief that Sita was born in Janakpur, a city in Nepal, and later married Lord Ram. The controversy has sparked a heated debate among audiences on both sides of the border.

In line with Mayor Shah’s stance, Nepal’s Film Censor Board has decided to withhold permission for the release of “Adipurush” until the necessary modifications are made to the film. This move has raised anticipation and curiosity among film enthusiasts, eager to see if the requested changes will be implemented.

Scheduled for release in Nepal on Friday, the fate of “Adipurush” hangs in the balance. The Film Censor Board has granted permission for its screening only under the condition that the dialogue referring to Sita as the daughter of India is removed.

The controversy surrounding the film has ignited discussions on cultural sensitivities and the representation of historical figures. As the deadline approaches, all eyes are on the filmmakers to see how they will address the concerns raised by Mayor Shah and the Film Censor Board.

The decision taken by Kathmandu Metropolitan City reflects the importance of preserving Nepal’s cultural heritage and historical narratives. It serves as a reminder that art and storytelling must be respectful of local beliefs and traditions. The outcome of this situation will undoubtedly shape future discussions on cross-border cinematic collaborations and the portrayal of mythological figures on the big screen.
