Disney And Marvel’s Blockbuster Doctor Strange Brings Attention To Nepal And Earthquake Victims

Doctor Strange is the second-biggest fall movie of the year and has crossed $100m at the US box office on November 9. Globally, Doctor Strange passed $325m on Tuesday afternoon. Its also a Disney success story, hitting new records of $6 billion at the global box office. Also a success story for Nepal. Many scenes of Disney and Marvel’s Doctor Strange was shot on location in Kathmandu, Nepal soon after the 2015 earthquake that devastated the country where thousands of people died and many were left homeless. The filming of the movie in the country brought positive attention to Nepal, helping the victims and showing the world Nepal is safe to visit again.

Ambassador Pritan Ambroase, whose other titles include Global Luxury Ambassador, Style Icon, Philanthropist and soon-to-be Talk Show Host says:

“I truly believe that Hollywood, World Cinema and the Fashion Industry can unite our world and make it a better place. Hollywoodand Movie Studios often get a bad name for being money hungry, whitewashing, corporate monsters. But I would like to sing a different tune and highlight the fact that Hollywood and movie studios have also done great work for betterment of our world. I am proud of Disney and Marvel, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Scott Derrickson for going to Nepal to shoot the film so soon after the earthquake that devastated the country. They could have easily chosen to film only on set in LA, but they didn’t. I am all for it. My philanthropic foundation Humans of our World did extensive work in providing relief to the victims and brought positive attention and help to Nepal. The trouble with disaster areas, is that the media’s attention lasts for a few weeks, Nepal’s earthquake victims plight was soon forgotten, but Benedict and Marvel being there, brought attention back to Nepal and now the movie’s release worldwide tells the world that the country is ready for tourism and highlights the continued plight of earthquake victims in Nepal. The country’s economy depends largely on tourism.  As a philanthropist who believes in a unified world, I would like to thank all of them. And I must say Nepalhas been picturised in such a spectacularly beautiful way. The country is a perfectly beautiful backdrop which adds to the grandeur of Doctor Strange. Hopefully just like Nepal, Hollywood will film movies in other disaster struck areas like Italy, Haiti, etc too, while organically fitting the storyline. I love the world uniting, be it for art, fashion, sport, movies, etc and hopefully someday for politics. I will keep using my platform to shine light on the causes that need help and to the ones bettering our world.”

Doctor Strange is playing in theatres worldwide.
