Nepal: Bollywood Movie Banned Over Buddha Birthplace Row

A Bollywood movie titled ‘Chandni Chowk To China’ was banned in Nepal because a narrator in a scene suggested that the Buddha was born in India instead of Nepal. Badmas comments: “Such false information to the world through bollywood movie has made Nepalese people think, ‘Enough Is Enough’.”
