What happened to Rekha Thapa stardom? Diarry omits Rekha in the Poster

It is a surprising move by ‘Diarry’ to omit actress Rekha Thapa from its poster. A couple of posters released recently features only the producer/actress Chhulthim Gurung and the debut actor in the movie – Sunny Singh. Actress Rekha Thapa is featured in a negative role in the movie.

A video report:

There was the time when Rekha Thapa could carry a film to success. Film producers would feature Rekha’s face in prominent position in the movie even when she is featured in a short/guest roles. ‘Dairrys’ attempt to ignore Rekha Thapa is an indication that it doesn’t need Rekha to be successful.

Let me analyze why ‘Diarry’ might be skeptical in featuring Rekha Thapa in it’s poster.

Flop Actress

Most of Rekha Thapa films have flopped in the recent past. Almost all of out-of-home-production banner films have flopped in the recent past and her last movie ‘Rampyari’ wasn’t as successful as expected.

Priyanka Karki and Ayushman Desraj affair, the strategist mother steps in!

Priyanka Karki has found a boyfriend, 5 years younger than herself (yes yes, the age doesn’t matter). Before, Priyanka Karki, Ayushman and Paramita RL Rana were almost married (yes, it is their personal life). The boyfriend Ayushman Desraj Joshi Shrestha is a celebrity son – son of a stunning banker, Raveena Desraj Shrestha.

Celebrity gossips are juicy and fun, readers love them. They also care about their favourite celebrities and always wish them the best. We often forget that, celebrities are also human and that they are also entitled to have a private life.

Every private moments of Priyanka and Ayushman have been public affair for a while. I had also shared some paparazzi style photos of the couple in Pokhara. I have a couple of more exclusive photos to share in this post (Hint – they are at the end :). But, there is nothing wrong with the photos, as they are just going around in public places. Most of the people who saw them would say “Hey, isn’t that Priyanka and Ayushman?” and go on doing what they were doing. One of my friends went a step further and took these photos.

It seems, Priyanka and Ayushman have taken the negative comments elegantly – but, the mother, Raveena, seems to be a bit more concerned of her son and his affairs. The mom, Raveena Desraj seems to be handling the case in a typical technical/managerial way. After all, she is a banker! I hope, she understands hearts as well as money!

First, Raveena invited Ayushman’s ex-girlfriend, Paramita RL Shah (my assumption, based on the photo she shared). Both Raveena and Paramita shared a photo of the three – Pramita, Raveena and her younger son and Ayushman’s borther – Ashirman Desraj Joshi Shrestha.

As if that was not enough, Raveena wrote a long post in Instagram, sharing a childhood photo of her son on the next day.

Yes, it was a well thought plan, strategically coordinated and executed by a professional strategist! Here is the full text copied from Instagram (As it is a long text, I have inserted paragraphs for easy read):
