I prepared a video about Nikhil Upreti wising Valentine Day wishes to one of his two wives and ignoring another. I was surprised by the way he treaded one to another when the photos of the status of Nikhil Upreti and Kopila Upreti were published in Nepal Samacharpatra – a National Daily.
I don’t use Facebook much these days. I only visit it when I need to investigate something. I did proper check on Nikhil’s account. It looked genuine for the following reasons:
- Nepal Samacharpatra had published a photo from the account. (I assumed they were responsible media.)
- In an interview Nikhil had admitted that he didn’t have a Facebook account and he was planning to open a new account. And, that was a new account. Less than a month old.
- I checked the list of the friends in the account. Most of them were well known personalities in the film industry. I expected they won’t be-friend a fake account.
- Based on her past posts and interactions, it was clear that Kopila Upreti’s account was not a fake account. Nikhil’s account had mentioned Kopila in many of the posts. So, I assumed it wasn’t a fake account.
Fake Account of Nikhil Upreti?
Nepali actress of ‘The Most Wanted’ and ‘Just For You’, Teluja Khatiwada has married Suman Raj Basnet of Birtamod, Jhapa. The marriage ceremony was organized in Kathmandu on February 18, 2017 at Kundalini Durbar banquet. Film artists, journalists and family members were invited in the cremony.
Who is Tejula Khatiwada?
The bride, Tejula Khatiwada was an actress of the Nepali film industry. She debuted in ‘The most Wanted’ but wasn’t much successful as an actress. I wrote about Tejula Khatiwada in 2009. She had told that she wanted to be a bold actress then. (read the post) Apart from movies, she had also worked in video films, and music videos. Here are some of her movies:
Watch ‘The Most Wanted’ here.
Watch ‘Jawaf’ here.
The ‘Pipal’ debut actresses Sushma Adhikari has stopped acting in movies after the failure if her second movie ‘Anautho Premkatha’. ‘Pipal’ was released in May of 2014 and ‘Anautho Premkatha’ was released after a couple of months.
Watch ‘Anautho Premkatha’ here.
The failure of both the movies proved that Sushma Adhikari wasn’t lucky as an actress. She also worked in a couple of Bhojpuri movies. The fate repeated in the Bhojpuri film industry too. Sushma Adhikari opened up in Bhojpuri movies – Deewana 2 and Jaya Madhesh. But, that didn’t help her.
Although she couldn’t leave an impression in movies, Sushma Adhikari has been successful as a model in music videos. She has been featured in hundreds of music videos. She is equally popular in lok geet music videos and pop song music videos. These days, Sushma is featured in a lot of music videos and she is also quite active in social media.
A new movie ‘Rajja Rani’ was announced at the time of Valentine Day week. In the event organized to announce the new movie, Keki Adhikari and Nazir Hussien shared rose and heart shaped ballon. In the movie, Keki and Nazir are going to be featured as the youths of Terai region. Watch the video report:
The announcement ceremony was held in Kathmandu on February 12, 2017. With Keki and Nazir Kameshowr Chaurasiya and Laxmi Bardewa will also be featured in main role in the movie.
Nepali actor Rajesh Hamal is one of the top actors in the Nepali film industry. Often called Maha Nayak (Super Actor), Rajesh Hamal ruled the film industry for about a quarter century. He prefers to tell that the film industry grew with him. Hamal is credited for :
- Bringing professionalism in Nepali film industry.
- Being the first educated actor in the film industry. He had done Masters in English literature from Punjab University in India.
- He is considered a no-nonsense actor. Unlike other actors, Hamal kept himself from having affairs with the actresses. Although there were rumours of his affair, all rumours turned fake. Actresses had termed him as the coldest actor in the film industry.
- Rajesh is a good orator and can easily impress the listener by his oratory skills. Proficiency in his English language is also something not seen in the Nepali film industry.
- The height, looks and the physique have also been factors that attracted youngsters of his time.
Rajesh Hamal Love Story
A movie based on the life of a disabled literary figure, Jhamak Kumari Ghimire, ‘Jeevan Kanda ki Phool’ is being made. A song from the movie has been recently released.

The heart touching song shows the happiness of Jhamak when she could write with her foot. The movie on Ghimire is being directed by Binod Bista. The singer of the song is Junu Gautam, lyrics and music by Prakash Siwakoti.
Who is Jhamak Ghimire?

Actor Rajesh Hamal has told that he still is 25 years old although he has worked in the film industry for the last 27 years. Hamal told the statement in funny way to the crowd gathered in Battar, Nuwakot during his stage performance. Rajesh Hamal told his famous dialogues, told about his previous visits to Nuwakot and danced to the songs by lok singer Sunita Dulal.
Asmita Sedhai, the wife the deceased rapper, Yama Buddha, was found at his home on the 13th day of mourning held at his house in Maitidevi. Wearing traditional white clothes for a widow, Asmita wasn’t happy by the media gossip about her and her husband Yama Buddha.
The family members told that Asmita had arrived Nepal on the day before the body of Yama Buddha, Anil Adhikari, was brought to Nepal. Although Asmita didn’t go to the Pragya Bhawan, the family members told that she had gone to the Pashupati Arya Ghat during the cremation of the body.
A few days, a news about actress, Rekha Thapa was published in an English website about her death. But, she later confirmed that she was still alive.
The news was so written that, nobody could suspect it to be fake. It gave real data to support the fake news. It also quoted a doctor to confirm her death. The background information of the actress was correct.
Today, another similar fake news was published in the website. The website has written the news in a professional manner giving every details of the ex-president.
When asked, the ex-president was found to be safe and sound in his home. A video report:
Who is writing the fake news?
The website doesn’t mention anything about the reporter or the editor of the website. There is no information about who has registered the website.
The affair between actor Saugat Malla and actress Shristi Shrestha is an open secret now. Although Saugat has admitted his love towards each other, they were trying to hide from the public. Before Shristi Saugat Malla was told to be in affair with model Soni KC. Soni reportedly threatened Shristi when Saugat left her. I also made a video about the affair and vacation of Saugat and Shristi at Rara lake in Mugu.
Now, it seems Saugat and Shristi are more comfortable being together in public places. Last time, they were seen together watching ‘Twelve Angary Men’ at Mandala Theatre. They seem comfortable being together and were happy when photos of them were taken.
After the release of her last movie ‘Rampyari’ on the last week of last year (in 2072 BS), no new movies of the actress were released this year. Till now, no new movies of Rekha are scheduled to release this year. This year, Rekha didn’t produce any movies either. In the past she used to produce one movie every year. Next year, she has announced ‘Rudrapriya’.
In addition to her home production movie, Rekha has worked in three movies out of her banner this year. The shooting of ‘Palas’ and ‘Diarry’ has completed. The third movie ‘Hero Returns’ is in its last stage. The movie ‘Diarry’ was initially scheduled to release on Chaitra 11. Now, the scheduled has changed.
Although no dates have been announced, all three movies are expected to release next year. In addition to the outside banner movies, Rekha is also planning to release her next movie ‘Rudra Priya’ on Dashain. So, 4 new movies of Rekha are going to release next year.
Once, the top actress of the Nepal movie industry, Rekha Thapa’s charm in these days has been reduced. In addition to film, Rekha has been trying to get in social work and politics. She had started Rekha Thapa Foundation. Although the initial work of the organization was promising, there are no news of any activities of the organization these days.
In politics, she joined Maoist initially. Now, she is the central committee member of Rastriya Prajatantra Party.
Marriage in Hero Returns
The marriage between Rekha Thapa and the actor of the movie Dil Shrestha was performed at the sets of the movie. Some online magazine had termed it as a real marriage and they revealed the truth at the end of the article. I have prepared a video report about the issue:
One of the most popular songs of Yama Buddha was titled ‘Sathi’. I am presenting the song lyrics and the video. For those who don’t understand Nepali, I have also included a translated version of the song.
My coverage on the deceased rap singer of Nepal:
Sathi music video:
Asmita Sedhai, the wife of late Anil Adhikari aka Yama Buddha, has deleted everything (or hidden) in her Facebook profile. Earlier when I visited her profile it had a number of photos and status updates. But, when I visited it today, everything is gone and the profile is clean with only one post – posted on the new year.
It is very sad time for Asmita and she should be going through a very hard time because:
- Her beloved husband has passed a fortnight ago.
- Worst, he had committed suicide.
- Even worst, that was in the bathroom of her parental home.
May be that is the reason, she has tried to run away from the questions. In this situation, Asmita and her family should at least have contacted and talked to media and told the truth.
What is expected from Asmita Sedhai?
- There is a huge fan base of the deceased celebrity, Yama Buddha. They need to hear from her relatives what had happened. Not speaking is not the solution.
- The only witness details that was released in media is from a guy named Roshan Bhattarai. But, in a UK newspaper report is different from Roshan’s report.
- His fans deserve the details of the truth.
Watch the video report about the statements:
Asmita Sedhai, the wife of late Anil Adhikari (Yama Buddha) wasn’t seen at the last rituals held in Pashupati Aryaghat on January 28, 2016. Anil Adhikari was living at Asmita’s parental home in London at the time of his death. He was found dead at their bathroom in the morning of January 14.
Who is Anil Adhikari’s wife?
Asmita Sedai is a 25 years old UK resident girl of Nepali origin. She married Nepali rap singer Anil Adhikari, popularly known as Yama Buddha in 2013. After marriage, Yama Buddha went to UK in a dependent visa in 2014.
