A new revelation in the relationship between actress Jiya KC and Bhuwan KC – Bhuwan is seen embracing Jiya in a Holi 2017 photo. In the photo shared by Jiya KC, it is quite apparent that the couple had applied Holi colours in privacy to each other, before participating in the group celebration.
Analysis of the holi colours on Bhuwan KC and Jiya KC:
Bhuwan has neatly applied purple colour on Jiya KC’s nose and cheek. Red and green colours are applied on her forehead. Jiya has applied red colour on Bhuwan’s forehead and nose, purple on his left cheek and on his nose, green on his right cheek and nose. They have neatly and strategically applied the colours on each other. Jiya has taken much care to apply it in symmetry where as, colour on Jiya seem to have been applied in a little rough manner. They booth look happy. May be because of photo filter, Bhuwan KC looks very young to his actual age of more than 50 years.

Shraddha Prasai Profile
The model Adhiti Budhathoki is going to debut in an upcoming Nepali movie ‘Kri’ opposite to Anmol KC. The model struggling in Mumbai had agreed to be featured in ‘Kri’ because of the popularity of Anmol KC and the success of all of his previous movies.
As Aditi lives in India, not much of her activities are released in Nepali media. Although she hasn’t been successful in being featured in big screen movies in India, she has done some music videos there. Aditi is featured in a Punjabi music video of a singer named Sandeep. (The music video is attached at the end of this post)
Aditi’s co-actor in ‘Kri’, Anmol KC,is keeping low profile while in preparation for the movie. Anmol has been away from media eyes for almost a year (with occasional surprise appearances). Aditi in the other hand is living in India and is quite active in social media. She occasionaly share hot photo of herself in Instagram. The scantly clad photos, attract a lot of comments and interaction. I have collected some of the photos to share with the xnepali viewers.
Who is Aditi Budhathoki?
Originally from Damak, Jhapa, Aditi’s home in Kathmandu is at Sinamangal. She mostly lives in Mumbai and works as a fashion model. A Bachelors degree holder in Information Technology, Atiti’s mother, Puspa Budhathoki, is also a fashion designer.
I wrote an article last year – 7 NRN Actresses in Nepali movies, Shristi Shrestha to Meruna Magar. Now, when I go back and read the article, I realize that I had failed to define what NRN actually mean. That is a very crucial factor to determine who is NRN and who is not.
Who is a Non Resident Nepali (NRN) actress?
The term Non Resident Nepali (NRN) is very loosely used in practice. Nepali citizen who go temporarily to foreign countries to work or study are often referred as NRN. If that were the case a lot of Nepali actresses can be termed NRN because, actress Priyanka Karki, Nisha Adhikari, Ashishma Nakarmi etc. had studied in the USA and had lived there for a while. Reecha Sharma had also gone to a foreign country for a training. A lot of other actresses have gone to India for training or work. We have a lot of Indian actresses in Nepali film industry. We don’t consider actresses like Niruta Singh, Tripti Naadkar, or Sushmita KC as foreign or NRN actresses, although they have their parental home in India and might be carrying an Indian passport.
Rishi Dhamala, the controversial journalist has invited the Nepali supearstar Rajesh Hamal in his program to discuss about his filmy career and the possibility of his entry into politics.
