Kuwait bans God Tussi Great Ho

After United Arbas Emirates banned Salman Khan-Amitabh Bachchan starrer, God Tussi Great Ho, another Gulf country Kuwait has decided to stop its screening as well.

The country's ministry of information decided to impose ban on the movie as it 'reportedly violates teachings of Islam,' a Kuwait National Cinema Company (KNCC) official told the Arab Times.

Interestingly, Bruce Almighty, the Jim Carrey-Morgan Freeman movie of which God Tussi Great Ho [Images] is a remake ran in Dubai with cuts but was banned in Kuwait. Bruce Almighty has been repeatedly telecast on Western movie channels that are aired in the region.

Pirated copies of the movie are already available in these countries and hundreds of copies are believed to have been sold already. Kuwait banned the movie Kingdom last year as it reportedly portrays Saudi authorities in a negative.
