Biraj Bhatt to become Harke Raja

Although the comeback movie of Biraj Bhatta – ‘Jaya Parshuram’ was not successful, Biraj is making another attempt to win the heart of Nepali viewers. When Biraj left the Nepali film industry and became the superstar of Bhojpuri film industry, he was in the top position here. But, after a long absence in the industry, it is not going to be easy for Bhatt to reclaim his previous status.

There is however a possibility of Biraj Bhatta to become popular again because, another action star of his time, Nikhil Upreti, has reclaimed his stardom in the film industry recently. He has given some hit movies and is one of the busiest actors in the Nepali film industry. Biraj Bhatta also has the same potential.

Video report about ‘Harke Raja’:

Although Biraj Bhatta has told that the shooting schedule is finalized, the official announcement is pending yet. The script writing is going on and other actors are yet to be finalized. Biraj told that Deepak Ghimire and Sandip Sapkota are finalized. The shooting of the movie is scheduled to start on Shrawan 29.  Continue reading

It seems, this year is going to see a huge clash between the new generation actors in the Nepali film industry. The most awaited movies this year feature either a new entry or the new generation actor. One of the most promising upcoming star of the Nepali film industry, Anmol KC’s movie ‘Kri’ is one of the most awaited movie. Similarly Pradeep Khadka’s ‘Prem Geet 2’, Paul Shah’s ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ and Samir Man Baniya’s movie ‘A Mero Hajur 2’ and so on.

I am presenting a list of new-age actors and their respective movies to release this year.

Anmol KC

The most awaited movie of the year ‘Kri’ is releasing this year. The movie created a huge hype by paying him Rs. 20,00,000 and keep him locked up for a year. He also kept himself away from the media and public for almost a year in preparation of the movie. One of the most successful actors in the film industry has 100% success rate from his four movies. All four movies were superhit movies of Anmol KC.

In addition to being exciting it is a challenging year for Anmol KC. He has to keep up with the higher expectation and to justify the cost involved in the movie.

4 young women that made a difference – Rojisha, Shova Sharma, Palsang Lama and Nikita

Well known writer Buddhisagar wrote in Twitter – “This week three young women of the new generation impressed me big time. Shova Sharma in writing, Rojisha Shahi in acting, Palsang Lama in music. Best wishes for the new heights.” (that was my rough translation of the Nepali text, attached at the end.)

In that list, I would like to add one more beauty – the Miss Nepal 2017, Nikita Chandak. I believe, she represent a whole new community and a diversion from the Kathmandu-centric Miss Nepal of the past. Let me introduce these four young women:

I know Rojisha Shahi:

  • A new height in the film industry (height in literal sense, she sure is tall)
  • Intelligent (it takes some of that to win the Miss Nepal Earth 2013 title) and
  • A new promising actress who debuted in Richa Sharma’s movie ‘Aadha Love’. One more promising movie of the actress ‘Gangster Blues’ is coming soon. ‘Gangster Blues’ is the movie by superhit director of ‘Jerryy’ and ‘Hostel’, Hemraj BC. The actress of ‘Jerryy’, Anna Sharma is also making comeback in the movie.
