Kuwait’s government has banned the upcoming Hollywood film Death on the Nile starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot. This film is the adaptation of whodunnit written by Agatha Christie.

The decision was made after the outcry on social media over the casting of Israeli actress Gal Gadot who served two years in the Israel Defense Forces as a soldier.

A spokesperson for Information Ministry, Anouar Mourad, told Agence France-Presse (AFP) that cinemagoers will not be able to watch Death on the Nile.


This film will be released on February 11 in the United States (US) which is directed by and co-starring Kenneth Branagh.

An Indian film actor, Ali Fazal is also starring along with Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie alongside Gadot and other lead actors.
