In an interview, Ayushman’s mother Rabina Desraj said, “I will make Priyanka my daughter-in-law.”
Although parental approval for marriage is a thing of past, it seems the newest love-birds are lucky enough to get the parental endorsement for the marriage. It was Priyanka’s mother Raksha Malhotra’s birthday on June 19, her boyfriend Ayushman Desraj and his mother Rabina Desraj were special guests. After the celebration, they also talked to the media about Priyanka’s relationship with Ayushman.

The trailer of ‘Prem Geet 2’ is trending number 1 in Nepal. But, the video has received more dislikes than the likes. At the time of this writing, there are more than 16,000 likes in the video. But, the dislike count is more than 17,000. I did a review of the trailer a while ago (Read the trailer review). I didn’t see anything to be disliked in the video.
The video has received 535k views at the time of this writing. According to the producer, Santosh Sen, somebody might be creating fake dislikes in the video. Because, most of the dislikes in the video has come from countries like Chili, Peru, and USA. He suspected somebody might have spent money to create the dislikes in the video. He told that he is investigating in the issue.
Because of the popularity of YouTube in Nepal and the effect of the songs in the business of movies, there are people who watch the videos just to increase the views count or create fake accounts to increase the like or dislikes in the videos.
Last week, during the NFDC National film award program the producer and the director of ‘Chhakka Panja’, Deepak Raj Giri and Deepa Shree Niraula left the venue mid-way. When the movie won two Best Movie award, they were not available to receive it. That created a controversy for which Deepak and Deepa wrote Facebook statuses too. Deepa ‘personally’ thanked the organizers and Deepak told that there is no requirements that he needs to stay till the end of the program.
There were report that Deepak told, “We are not here to clap for others,” before he left the venue. Comedy actors Jitu Nepal and Kedar Ghimire had also left with Deepak and Deepa. So, when Kedar Ghimire won the Best Comedy Actor award, he wasn’t there to receive it.
Deepa in an interview with an online channel told that the accusation that they ran away from the program is false. She told that they didn’t have any complaints against the award organizers.
She told that Deepak and Deepa had work to do, similarly Jitu and Kedar had a meeting. The explanation however doesn’t make sense at all. But, in her later statements it is clear that she was lying.
Deepa says, “The timing wasn’t right – the award was awarded right after we got out of the venue.”
The actress of upcoming movie featuring Anmol KC in leading role, ‘Kri’ is a beautiful and hot actress. She knows how to tease her followers in Facebook and Instagram. The actress with decent looks and a hot body, Aditi Budhathoki is struggling in Mumbai. Although she has landed in a number of modelling assignments, she is yet to get a role in movies there.
I had also prepared a video report about the actress. In the video, I had listed 10 things about the actress:
Every international beauty contests have a swimsuit round and the swimsuit poses of beauty contest winners and models are not rare poses. But, after Miss World scraped the swimsuit round, the swimsuit poses of Miss Nepal winners have become rare. I haven’t found any swimsuit photos of any Miss Nepal after 2013. In a latest photo shared by Asmi Shrestha from Thailand, she is wearing a swim suit. But, the photo is not clear and the photo only shows her back. Yes, it is not a proper swimsuit photo but, that is the only one she has shared so far.
In another photo Asmi is seen wearing a jeans shorts with black top and holding a beer on a beach.
According to the latest Teej song of Komal Oli, she has no interest to get married. But, the lyrics of the song is not written by herself but another singer and musician, Pashupati Sharma. Songs are songs – they don’t relate to one’s life. But, in the case of Komal Oli, it has turned out to be true.
Last year, Komal Oli sang – “This is the last time I will be searching for a husband.” In the same song, the lyricist Pashupati Sharma suggested her to join politics and be a politician. It seems, she has followed his advice and joined Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP). It was not only joining the party, she resigned from the Radio Nepal job to be a full time politician. The party also responded by electing Oli the Central Committee Member of the party. Now, after being a politician, the song says – “I will live and die for my country. I have no interest in getting married.
The movie ‘Prem Geet 2’ is one of the two sequels of superhit movie ‘Prem Geet’. The movie repeats the lead actor Pradeep Khadka and also features the producer, Santosh Sen, as one of the actors. The movie introduces new actress Aslesha Thakuri in the film industry.
A program was held in Kathmandu to release the trailer of the movie. In the program the producer Santosh Sen, actors Pradeep Khadka and Aslesha Thakuri and the director Ram Sharan Pathaka answered the questions asked by the journalists.
The trailer of the debut movie of actor Shishir JB Rana, as a director, has been released. The main attraction of the movie are Samragyee RL Shah and Najir Hussien. A new entry in the Nepali film industry, Aakash Shrestha, is also a promising actor. Akash Shrestha had debuted in Nepali movie industry in ‘Ma Ta Timrai Hoon’. Sunil BK is a new introduction in the movie.
The trailer shows three characters played by Samragyee RL Shah, Aakash Shrestha and Nazir Hussien in Poon Hill. One of the popular destination to watch sunrise and sunset, Poon Hill is a 3,210 m hill station located in Myagdi District of northern-central Nepal. The nearby village Ghorepani is at 17 kilometres from the district capital of Beni. The place located in the Annapurna Conservation Area (ACA) is a popular touristic destination.
The trailer starts with the location map of Poon Hill, where “three strangers” meet. First, Samragyee is shown walking, then Aakash is shown playing with a couple of kids, and Nazir Hussain is shown smiling. The characters start “One Journey” – they are shown walking along a snow filled area towards “One Destination”. A village is shown beside a mountain range. Two characters are shown walking towards a view tower at a hill station with a beautiful snow-covered mountain peaks on the background. “Love” between Aakash and Samragyee, and also between Najir and Samragyee.
The ‘Chhakka Panja’ team attended NFDC Film award with high hopes. That was because, it was nominated in 15 categories – that was the most number of categories any movies were nominated in the award.

UPDATE – video report
What Happened at NFDC?
All the titles that ‘Chhakka Panja’ won – best movie, best actress, best director etc. were announced towards the end. In the star, all the awards were given to other films. Most of the awards ‘Chhakka Panja’ was nominated in went to ‘Purano Dunga’ – the movie that wasn’t as successful as ‘Chhakka Panja’. I can guess how torturous it would have been to Deepak and Deepa.
Who won in the categories ‘Chhakka Panja’ was nominated in? :
- Best Script – Purano Dunga
- Best cinematography – Purano Dunga
- Best Editing – Jatara (Mitra Gurung)
- Best Music – Purano Dunga
- Best Playback singing – Loot 2
- Best Choreographer – Loot 2
- Best Sound Mixing – Jatra
- Best Background Music – Chapali Height 2
- Best Actor – Jatra (Bipin Karki)
- Best Supporting Actor – Purano Dunga (Mao Tse Gurung)
- Best Supporting Actress – Purnao Dunga (Menaka Pradhan)
Chhakka Panja won
- Best Movie
- Best Director – Deepa Shree Niraula
- Best Actress – Priyanka Karki
- Best Comedy Actor – Kedar Ghimire
- Best Commercial Movie
It’s not a big deal – kissing two lovers. But, the kissing of Priyanka Karki and Ayushman Desraj Joshi is a big deal because:
- Neither Priyanka nor Ayushman had clearly told they were in relationship before.
- Ayushman made the big announcement at the stage by terming Priyanka his “girlfriend” and her mother his “girlfriend’s mom” in the stage. When you watch the attached video you could hear a lady telling, “I was waiting for this,” at around 01:43.
- It is a clear indication that Priyanka is planning to take it as a long-term-relationship. As Priyanka Karki had previously divorced, my guess is that she must have done a better evaluation of the relationship before making it public.
