Bollywood actress are moving ahead in the so called ‘Laxman Rekha’ of decency and is posing for the nude magazine Playboy.

Producer and director Ram Gopal Varma is making her wish come true with the remake of a horror movie. Fans of Manisha had been curious on the role of Manisha in her upcoming horror movie. Ram Gopal explained that, Manisha will be featured in the movie as a mother of two kids.
A news about a Nepali actor, Shri Krishna Shrestha, starting a business named "Kollywood Planet" left me thinking – is the Nepali movie industry Kollywood?
Although, Shri Krishna Shrestha’s business doesn’t seem much related to the Nepali movie industry, I have a feeling, he does want to represent the Nepali film industry. The name, Kollywood, seems to be inspired by the combination of Kathmandu and Hollywood. But, when I checked the name in Google, there was no reference of Kollywood being related to Nepali (or Kathmandu) film industry, at least, not on the first page.
That means, either we have to forget about the name "Kollywood" to represent our movie industry or, make it more popular by using it more frequently. In this context, let us review what Hollywood is and, what names are inspired by Hollywood:
In the modern time, Hollywood has become an iconic name to represent the US movie industry. The success of Hollywood movies has inspired other film industries to nickname themselves with Hollywood-inspired names.
Hollywood is a district in Los Angeles, California, United States (yes, it’s not a movie industry in itself, as believed popularly). The place situated west-northwest of downtown Los Angeles, got it’s cultural identity as the center of movie studios and movie stars when movie making activities increased in the early 20th century.
The nationality of the movie based on the life of Nepali Bhajanshiromani Bhakta Raj Acharya is being disputed based on it’s submission to a film festival in India as an Indian movie.
Shakuntala Thapa, mother of Nihita, the wife of convicted killer Charles Shobhraj, told that she was shocked by the sex question her daughter faced in her appearance in Bigg Boss 5 in Indian TV channel Colors.
Shakuntala said, “People don’t ask such questions, especially to people they have known only for 15 minutes. Nihita is young and led a sheltered life. We encouraged her to join the show thinking she would make friends with people from different cultures and broaden her horizon.”
Lets analyze what happened in the show:
I thought, it can only happen in Nepali movies, – a low grade trick to copy the idea from other movies’ posters to design their posters. But, I am proved wrong!
Big banner Bollywood movie Murder 2 did the same – not in one but two of its posters. The sequel to the 2004 superhit film Murder, Murder 2 is told to be a Bollywood erotic thriller film.
Aamir Khan’s latest production, Delhi Belly, has been banned in Nepali theaters. Reportedly, the Censor Board of Nepal allowed the theater owners to screen the film after deleting and muting some scenes containing abusive scenes and offensive language. But, the theater owners were found screening the film without deleting the censored scenes. Therefore, the film has been banned and replaced with others movie, since Sunday.
Chetan Sapkota, a Censor Board member, as quoted in Republica, stated, "We issued the certificate on condition that more than five dialogues would be removed. But, we found that the movie was screened without removing them". The punishment for offenders, as per the country’s censorship laws is that, the film’s distributors can either be fined a sum of NRs 10,000 or can be imprisoned for a year or can be penalized with both. However, the theater owners told that they had complied with the order. They told, they need some time, especially for the digital format changes, they had to send the reel back to India.
