Guwahati: Assam’s heartthrob and singer-composer Zubeen Garg has appealed his fans to lodge a complaint with YouTube for stopping the streaming of “Kanchanjangha” and “Mission China” – the two popular Assamese movies made by the musician himself.
“Mission China” was released in 2017 and it was loved and adored by the cine-goers of the state.
On the other hand, “Kanchanjangha” went on to become the highest-grossing Assamese movie of all time in 2019 before it was replaced by Jatin Bora starrer “Ratnakar”.
With Covid-19 pandemic hitting the entertainment industry across the country severly, there has been no new release in Assam since December 2019.
With “Kanchanjangha” and “Ratnakar” setting the Box Office on fire it was hoped that the Assamese film industry would finally move towards a new direction and people would throng into the theatres in large numbers.
However, owing to the anti CAA protests, the theatres remained closed for the most part of December and filmmakers announced of postponing the release of their movies in the wake of the raging protests.
