S’pore, Thai show confirmed, Malaysia still in limbo


Chaar Sahibzaade animation movie will be screened in Bangkok over the weekend while Singaporeans will get their chance to catch the story of the four sons of Guru Gobind Singh next week.

However, the Malaysian screening of the animation movie, making waves on the global stage since its release on Nov 6, has yet to be confirmed.

It is understood that there is a hickup in bringing the movie to the Malaysian public. There are also concerns whether it could pass the censorship board in the Muslim majority nation.

Thailand screening will be done at the Mall Taphra and the Central World, Bangkok, starting tomorrow (Nov 29).

The Mall Tapha tickets are being sold at the Bangkok gurdwara while tickets for the latter can be obtained from Dosa King Soi 11 (Tel: 02-651-1700), according to a Facebook posting by an active Sikh member of the Thai community.
