Summer Love delayed, is it due to the search of a cheap actress ?

It seems, the movie to be made on the popular novel by Subin Bhattarai, ‘Summer Love’ is delayed. The reason for the delay is said to be the lead actress. The actress to be featured as the character Saya in the novel hasn’t been found yet. The film to be produced by the producer of ‘Nai Nabhannu La’ franchise, Bikash Acharya, was said to be directed by his assistant, Muskan Dhakal.

Detailed video report:

The movie was initially announced in June of 2015. After almost a year later, ‘Dreams’ actress,Samragyee RL Shah was told to be featured in the leading actress’ role. Samragyee and the film team hadn’t however signed an agreement. Later, when ‘Dreams’ became a hit movie, Samragyee RL Shah reportedly hiked her price and the ‘Summer Love’ production team decided to search for another actress. In the mean time Samragyee RL Shah has signed actress Jharana Thapa‘s directoral debut movie ‘A Mero Hajur 2’ for a sum of Rs. 500 K.

Why go cheap ?

It seems, the production team is penny pinching while searching for an actress. It is not a good sign that the producers couldn’t find an actress not only in Nepal but also in Australia.
