Salman Khan has millions of followers globally, who are extremely excited when the actor performs live for his fans. 'Da-Bangg - The Tour', a Bollywood musical has given the 52-year-old an opportunity to fulfil the dreams of many by performing for them on stage.

After enthralling the Delhiites in December, the actor is all ready to entice Nepal's cinema lovers along with his gang consisting Sonakshi Sinha, Kriti Sanon, Prabhudeva, Manish Paul, Vaibhavi Merchant and the Meet Bros on his Kathmandu trip on March 10.

But when have things gone smoothly with the actor. His Nepal tour is currently under threat as suggested by media reports. A Maoist party has supposedly called for the cancellation of Bollywood musical show as it deduces "Indian cultural intervention".

Describing the tour as the "expansion of Indian cultural intervention" on Nepal's land, the cultural wing of the CPN- Maoist, a splinter faction of CPN-Maoist Center, has expressed several reservations against the said show and has united several nationalist forces to revolt against the event.

In a statement issued by the party on Tuesday, nationalist and patriotic forces have been urged to stop "Western and Indian cultural interventions". It read, "we urge it to be cancelled immediately. We know he (Salman) is popular but any kind of cultural attack is not acceptable."

The statement described the event as, "The function has the hidden objective to measure the sensitivity of the Nepalese people about their nationality." The CPN- Maoist further went onto attack the organisers of promoting liquor through the scheduled event.

"In a way, the programme is also promoting liquor which is not acceptable to us. We are against all kinds of globalization bids," they claimed. The scheduled musical will witness some top Nepalese artists along with 110 other singers and dancers from Bollywood performing on stage.

The party workers have also questioned the usage of Nepal Army Pavilion in Tundhikhel to hold such an event. Threatening the state, party bellowed that it the event did take place, they wouldn't be responsible for the occurrence of unlikely events.
