Nepal bans Delhi Belly

MUMBAI: After the Nepali distributor of the Aamir Khan film Delhi Belly Uddhav Poudel failed to comply with the Nepali Censor recommendation to effect cuts in the film due to vulgar language, the Censor board instructed all the multiplexes and theatres showing the comedy directed by Abhinay Deo to stop screening.

The ban came into effect on Sunday evening after the police raided the Gopikrishna multiplex in Kathmandu, the owner of which is Poudel who
happens to be the film?s distributor in Nepal.

The Censors mainly objected to the deletion of three scenes. The scenes they found offensive include the one in which Imran Khan visits a brothel. Besides, there are two other scenes where nine-letter Hindi expletives have been used. However, the Censors had not asked for these two scenes to be deleted; they only wanted the sound to be muted.

Theatre owners said the changes were being made. However, the technicalities would require some time, especially since making changes in the digital format would mean sending the film back to India.

In the past, the Nepali Censors had banned Chandni Chowk to China in 2009 for a line in the narration that said the Buddha was born in India while in 2000, the Hrithik Roshan-starrer Mission Kashmir was banned after the local media whipped up an anti-Hrithik frenzy by attributing anti-Nepal sentiments to him.
