Salman Khan ready to enthral Kathmandu
Jan 20, 2018-
Bollywood heartthrob Salman Khan, who was last seen in the blockbuster Tiger Zinda Hai, is set to arrive in Kathmandu for the musical tour, “Da-Bangg: The Tour”, which is scheduled to take place at Tundikhel on March 10.
The tour, which kicked off last year, has already enthralled several cities around the world, including Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, London and Birmingham.
To confirm the superstar’s arrival, the two main organisers of the tour, Sohail Khan Entertainments and JA Events, and the partner organiser from Nepal, ODC Entertainment, organised a press meet at the Soaltee Crowne Plaza in the Capital on Friday.
Sohail Khan, the founder of Sohail Khan Entertainments—also an actor and younger brother of Salman, briefed the media about the extravaganza that is to come.
“We are extremely delighted to bring Da-Bangg: The Tour in Kathmandu for the first time. I am sure the entire team is more than excited than the Nepali people, because Nepal is like our extended home, our neighbours, where we are always showered with immense love and support,” he said.
“The entire Bollywood industry credits Nepal for being a part of its success story and post the 2015 earthquake, we want to promote Nepal’s tourism as much as we can.”
Also joining Salman on stage will be a troupe of actors, dancers and entertainers, including Sonakshi Sinha, Kriti Sanon, Prabhu Deva, Daisy Shah, Meet Bros and Manish Paul.
Simant Gurung of ODC Entertainment, which brought international acts like Bryan Adams and Michael Learns to Rock to Nepal in the past, said besides Bollywood entertainers, they are also planning to line up some Nepali artists on the stage.
“The show’s tickets will be up for sale from February onwards and the prices will range between Rs 2,000 and Rs 10,000,” Gurung said.
