LOS ANGELES — Actress Charlize Theron has slammed the “caveman-like” nature of Hollywood for not allowing women to helm big-budget movies in an outspoken new interview.

“I am ashamed that I’m part of an industry that has never allowed a woman to work with a budget higher than what the budget has been on ‘Wonder Woman.’ That’s so f***ing caveman-like,” variety.com quoted Theron as saying.

“I am always hoping that this is the movie that’s going to change it and keep it for us,” she added.

The actress, referring to the $149 million (£115 million) budget of Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, with whom she worked on 2003’s Monster,  told Variety magazine: “I am ashamed that I’m part of an industry that has never allowed a woman to work with a budget higher (than Wonder Woman). That’s so f**king caveman-like. I am always hoping that this is the movie that’s going to change it.”

KATHMANDU — Bollywood star Salman Khan and over 60 actors will be performing in Kathmandu on March 10 for the musical tour, ‘Da-Bangg: The Tour’ event, which will take place at Tundikhel ground, and expected to attract around 50, 000 viewers, including 10,000 foreigners.

The two main organisers of the tour, Sohail Khan Entertainments and JA Events, and the partner organiser from Nepal, ODC Entertainment, for the event’s confirmation, have organised a press meet here at the Capital’s Soaltee Crowne Plaza on Friday.

‘Da-Bangg: The Tour Nepal’ will feature live performances by Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Prabhu Deva, Meet Bros, Daisy Shah, Kriti Sanon and Maniesh Paul.

Sohail Khan, the founder of Sohail Khan Entertainments — also an actor and the 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. There should be more of these cultural shows and vice-versa, where Nepali artists and Indian artists get together; we should get together and make ties between our cultures into a very beautiful world,” Sohail said.

“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.”

Likwise, Deepak Joshi, CEO of the Nepal Tourism Board, said, “This event will also be one of the instrumental to promote Nepal to recover our tourism as events are very important to promote destinations. For many Indian visitors it is very popular as a party and pilgrimage segment, very popular for adventure enthusiasts and weekend breakers and an equally important destination for film makers too.”

Apart from the event, Salman Khan is scheduled to visit the Chandragiri Hills. He is also scheduled to undertake a Heli flight to see Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nupche, Makalu and other high Himalayan peaks.
