In a very sad news, Nepali popular rapper Yama Buddha was found in his London home. The 29 years old Anil Adhikari, popularly known as Yama Buddha, was one of the most famous celebrity in Nepal.
I am extra sad because, few hours before his death, I was making a video about him. In the list of top 10 Facebook celebrities, Yama Buddha was the only male Nepali celebrity. All others were female celebrities. I uploaded the video in YouTube (watch the video at the end of this post) went to the bed. I woke up to the news that the same Yama Buddha had committed suicide.

I am really sad and I was literally crying while making the video above. I don’t want to write more here. I will try to update this post later.
RIP Yama Buddha.

She went to the premier of Keki Adhikari’s new movie ‘Love Sasha’ on January 10 in a revealing dress although the weather wasn’t that much suitable for such type of dresses. The black dress was open on the front and the photographers were able to capture some cleavage of the actress while she was adjusting the hem.
Watch a video report about Priyanka and the event:
Priyanka’s pose with the co-actor of her upcoming movie ‘Happy Days’ Sanjay Gupta was also the talk of the evening. They had shown their intimate relationship during the photo shot. Priyanka and Sanjay were in UK for the shooting of ‘Happy Days’ a while ago. The movie also features Dayahang Rai.

One of the guy involved in the piracy of ‘Chhaka Panja’ has committed suicide at his home. According to reports, the guy named Krishna Subedi from Nawalparasi, Kawasoti was found dead at his room in Gaushala.
Subedi had reportedly transferred the movie to Australia through Google Drive. Earlier, Deepak Raj Giri had told that the police had arrested some people in connection with the piracy of the movie. He had also announced the release of the movie in YouTube.
Why did Krishna Subedi committed suicide?
There is no report on why Krishna Subedi killed himself. But, as he was arrested and was released in bail, he might have gone through an enrmous amount of stress. It seems, he was only involved in transferring a file he received from somebody else. He doesn’t seem to be directly involved in stealing the movie from the producers.
