- New Delhi, May 10 (IANS) Director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna's D.K.'s "Go Goa Gone" has got a clearance certificate from the Goa government, but the movie hasn't got a green signal in Kuwait and Nepal.
Illuminati Films and Eros International's "Go Goa Gone" is banned in Kuwait and it needs 20 cuts to release in Nepal, said a statement.
Tagged as India's first zombie-comedy movie, "Go Goa Gone", releasing Friday, is set in the backdrop of Goa, where four friends encounter zombies and how they struggle to escape.
"We were glad to show Goa government the film because we knew there is nothing derogatory about Goa and that they would see the sense of humour with which we have treated everything. We are happy they okayed the film...Goans will get to watch 'Go Goa Gone'," Nidimoru said.
The movie faced the ire of anti-tobacco groups when objection was raised on a scene and a poster where actor Saif Ali Khan was seen with a cigar in his mouth.
The movie also stars Vir Das, Kunal Kemmu and Puja Gupta in the lead roles.
