Actress Pooja Sharma talked about actor Bhuwan KC and Anmol KC in one of her interviews. But, when the interview was published, a misleading title was published causing the mother of Anmol KC, Sushmita KC to express her dissatisfaction.
Here is the screenshot of what went around in the internet.
Sushmita seems to be in a hurry to respond to things. It was not the first time she has done so. She had expressed her anger against a journalist at the time of the release of her movie. The she also wrote hate words against Bhuwan KC a while ago. Now, she is defending Bhuwan KC.
The title of course is misleading, and it makes sense when Sushmita responded by the following statement:
Now, it is official, the director of upcoming movie ‘Laure’ is kicked out of the project towards the end of the shooting. The director Nigam Shrestha was removed by the production team, Durgesh Films, when the shooting is in its last stage.

The nature and the level of bad behaviour is not known.

This week, on July 7, 2017, two new movies are released in theatre – ‘Dhanapati’ and ‘Mandira’. While one of them is made by the makers of super hit movies in the past, another is not much known about.
The movie by the writer of ‘Pashupati Prasad’ and ‘Talakjung VS Tulke’, ‘Dhanapati’ also has a huge expectation from the viewers. Directed by Dipendra K Khanal, the movie is made on a political story. The protagonist is a guy who wanted to give a better education to his daughter. He started working for a political leader.
The ‘Prem Geet 2’ team is currently in cross-country promotion tour. The tour started from Kathmandu to Damauli, Pokhara, Nepalgunj, Birgunj, Bhairahawa and to the East Nepal. In the concert held in Nepalgunj, the actress of the movie Aslesha Thakuri showed off too much skin on the stage. Aslesha wore a loose skirt and danced on an elevated platform, showing off her body.
The wardrobe malfunction of the concert was staged because:
- Aslesha had specifically chosen the dress to show off. It was not an accidental exposure, she intentionally maneuvered in such a way that the skirt flew in the air. (Watch the attached video to see her in action).
- One of the crew members, shared a video with a wardrobe malfunction photo on it’s cover art (with a blur on her back, creating more curiosity to the viewers).
- The producer of the movie Santosh Sen had also shared the video on his Facebook wall.
- The team later interviewed the actress in which she was shown crying.
