Mom Actresses in Nepali film industry – Karishma Manandhar to Sumina Ghimire

I wrote his article in May of 2016 – to mark the Nepali Mother’s Day. I am re-writing this article because there are three more updates in the article :

  • Sumina Ghimire gave birth to her daughter in December 25, 2015. Sumina Ghimire had gone into hiding after marrying, so it took me nine months to know about her childbirth. (photo and a video report is attached.)
  • Simpal Khanal is also expecting a new child soon. Although Simpal had also gone into hiding after marrying a UK resident guy, she had shared the photo of her big belly recently. (a video report is attached – read more about Simpal’s pregnancy here)
  • Sumi Khadka is another actress who is pregnant now. Sumi had announced the pregancy on September 26, 2016. Khadka, a former Miss Nepal, was also an actress in a number of movies. Sumi had married Chiran Basnyat in 2015. (A photo is attached.)

Video report (May 2016):

On the Nepali Mother’s Day, I had also collected the mothers of some of the Nepali actresses. The creator, mothers of the beautiful and charming actresses are mostly in the shadow of the limelights of their daughters.

But, today I am collecting the actresses who are themselves mothers. (Update of more photos and video coming soon.)

After marrying the pilot boyfriend, Santosh Sapkota, Sumina had cut-off herself from the film industry and her film industry friends. She hasn’t been seen in any public functions after that.

Recently, I have found out that Sumina has already become the mother of a daughter. The daughter, born on the Christmas of 2015 is already 9 months old now. Sumina and her husband Santosh Sapkota, a pilot of Sita Air, are not seen in any film programs or public events.

Saugat Malla and Shristi Shrestha affair rumour, is it true?

Rumours are just rumours, totally unreliable. When facts are doctored and altered to support the rumour, the rumour’s reliability goes down the drain. That is what has happened to the recent rumour of affair between Miss Nepal 2012, Shristi Shrestha and Haku Kale of ‘Loot’, Saugat Malla. Watch the following video report on what had happened:

I read a gossip article in an online film-magazine that Saugat Malla and Shristi Shrestha were seen together watching ‘Jhumkee’. The report says that they had tried their best to keep themselves from the prying eyes. The photo shared in the report doesn’t show faces and there is no other proof on the claim. I would have believed in the report if the second photo of the report weren’t doctored.

Will Anju Panta be an actress in her 40s? Who is Anju Panta?

The popular singer Anju Panta is good looking personality. Many film producers had approached Anju to feature in their movie int he last decade. Anju had however rejected all of those offers. Now, as she approaches in the 40s (Anju turned 39 a few months back), she had told that she might re-consider her decision not to act in movies. The following video report is prepared to discuss about Anju Panta’s desire to act in movies.

Anju’s condition of her acting debut is that, the story of the movie has to be based on her own life. Why did she change her mind? Here are the reasons:

  • Anju has written an autobiography. The book is expected to release in market after a while.
  • The decision to act in movie might be a promotional strategy of the book (this is just an assumption).
  • While writing the autobiography, Anju might have seen that her story might make an interesting movie. She might be asking the film makers to consider making the movie.
  • Now, she has enjoyed the fame and money, she might have wanted to test another field – acting.

Anju still doesn’t seem to be interested in acting in professional way. She wants to be act for fun and tell her own story. If it is just for fun, she should let the professional actor to do her role. That would be more professional and interesting to the viewers. She could always be featured in a guest’s role. “The Pursuit of Happyness” would be an example of what a biographical film could be.

Who is Anju Panta ?

Too many awards – same categories, same winners, winners didn’t show up

Do you know who is most excited to win an award in an award ceremony?

The first time winners are the most excited and enthusiastic when an award is announced. But, when the winner of the Best Newcomer Award doesn’t show up in an award ceremony to receive the award, there is something seriously wrong. I don’t know if that had happened in the other award ceremonies as well but, I felt it odd when the winner of Best Newcomer award, Samragyee RL Shah, didn’t show up to receive the award in NFDC National Award ceremony, held recently.

Video report:

I think, that was because, she had already won the award and there is no charm in winning more than one awards for the same movie and same role.

I wonder, how Namrata Shrestha could even feel happy – winning awards for the same thing – again and again, and again for the fifth time. Yes, she won Best Actress awards for the same role in ‘Classic’ – five different awards:

  • National Award
  • FAAN Award
  • D Cine Award
  • LG Film Award
  • NFDC Award

I am pretty sure she will win more awards in future. If I were her, after winning the Nation Award, from the President of Nepal, Bidhya Devi Bhandari, I wouldn’t have attended any other award ceremonies.
