In a conversation with RJ Sabeena Karki, Nepali actor Rajesh Hamal has talked about his personal life and about his wife. Rajesh told his married life is going “fantastic” and he is very happy with his marriage. In the live interview was taken at Time Square in New York, Rajesh told that hew was confused if he should get married or not. He added, “Now, once I am married, I am very happy.”
When asked about the child, Rajesh Hamal told that he is still in honeymoon phase. He also added, he is trying to get Madhu Bhattarai pregnant.
It is a common belief that comedy actors are the most happy people around. In reality, the laughter they spread is simply the coverup of their sorrows. A proof is comedy actor Kedar Ghimire, popularly known as Magne Budho, after a character he played in ‘Meri Bassai’.
Video report about Magne Budha’s condition:
Kedar Ghimire teamed up with Sitaram Kattel (Dhurmus) in directing ‘Meri Bassai’. The comedy serial quickly became very popular. But, the relationship between Dhurmus and Magne Budho turned sour. Magne left the serial and started producing other comedy videos. These days, Magne Budho has started a new comedy serial ‘Khas Khus’. Magne however couldn’t act in the serial much as he fell sick and had to take rest. Magne has recently shared the details of his health condition. He was initially diagnosed of ulcer like symptoms and was taking medication. The doctors have also given him depression medication because of the mental health issues.

Chhabi Raj Ojha’s next movie ‘Kismat 2’ is releasing in the Dashain this year. It seems, the film team is well prepared not to leave any stone unturned. The lead actress, Shilpa Pokharel has told in an interview that if her family agrees, she is willing to marry Chhabi Raj Ojha. Based on previous statement, I think, she is very unlikely to marry Chhabi and it is only a publicity stunt. This time, Chhabi had prepared the situation by formally divorcing Rekha Thapa in the court.
I did an analysis of the situation and prepared the following video:

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.
