The lineup includes popular faces in the likes of Sonakshi Sinha, Kriti Sanon, Prabhu Deva, Daisy Shah, Meet Bros, and Manish Paul.“The main objective of the event is to nullify the negativity that has plagued the tourism industry of Nepal after the 2015 earthquakes and the unofficial blockade,” said the organizers while announcing the tour. “With Salman Khan, who has almost 49 million followers on social media, in town, we hope we can establish Nepal as a safe travel destination through this event.” The event will see Khan as the main entertainer, performing to some of his most beloved songs.
The performing artists are expected to stay in Nepal for a week and visit various touristic sites in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Lumbini, after the event. According to the organizers, Khan will spend one morning in Namche Bazaar enjoying ‘Breakfast in Everest’ after a mountain flight over the Himalayas. The Da-Bangg tour has already traveled to various international destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, and Hong Kong and the event in Kathmandu is slated to follow the outline of the previous shows.The event, slated to take place on March 10 in Tundikhel, is organised by ODC Entertainment Pvt Ltd, alongside Sohail Khan Production and JE Events in India.
