At the time of welcoming the new year 2070 BS, let’s talk about the most talked about actresses in the year 2069. Actress Rekha Thapa has become the most talked about in actress xNepali in 2069. So the title of ‘Controversy Queen of 2069 goes to Rekha Thapa!
After Rekha, the runner-up of the Controversy Queen 2069 is Sumina Ghimire. She jumped into the next-to-the-top position in the last days of the year when she let her anger rule in a telephone conversation with a journalist. None other than Sushma Karki took the second runner-up title with numerous controversies involving directors and boy friends.
Let’s only talk about the winner, Rekha Thapa:
The year started with the divorce rumor and confirmation by both Rekha and Chhabi Raj although no legal confirmation was publicized. When Chhabi registered Chhabi Raj Films, the divorce was considered confirmed. After being single, Rekha discussed the possibility of her career in politics with an astrologer. Her attempt to get herself appointed as the head of Film Development Board might have been according to the suggestion of the astrologer. But, when the political lobbying didn’t work, she went to USA in a month-long tour.
In an article published in Korea Times, the Indian Ambassador to South Korea, Vishnu Prakash, argued that one of the reasons the North-Eastern part of the country is beautiful because of the existence of Mt. Everest.
The northeastern part of the country where it borders China offers the most beautiful scenic views thanks to Mt. Everest.
The newspaper hasn’t specifically quoted the Ambassador saying the exact words but, it seem to imply that one has to go to India to see Mt. Everest. Mt. Everest h
owever is in the border of Nepal and China, at least 200 km away from the Indian border.
Nepali print and online media have started protest to the statement.

This time, there was an unlikely competition between a established producer and actor Bhuwan KC and a new entry actress Binita Baral. It was not only in changing their names on the suggestion of their respective astrologers, they also competed in creating controversies. And the unlikely winner was Binita Baral (we better call her Beenita Baral).
Nepali film industry is becoming more competitive these days. Established actors and actresses are facing hard time in remaining relevant in these days and the new actors and film makers are ruling our film industry. In this race, actor / producer, Bhuwan KC‘s attempt to make a comeback was not successful.
After the Binita Baral controversy over the publication some of her photos in various magazine covers, the producer of the movie, Arju Kumar, decided to destroy all the posters designed with the naked photos. About Rs. 250,000 was the cost of design, re-design, and printing of the destroyed posters.
UPDATE: Binita Baral organized the press meet. She is ‘happy’ to tell her story and seems ‘happier’ by the amount of media attraction the photo created. In her Facebook she didn’t care to tell what was the real thing she told in the press meet. That means it is not the important. It seems, the press meet was well planned beforehand and they had taken some photos specially for the anticipated press meet – photos showing undergarments. Binita posted this message in Facebook:
The Facebook message says nothing about her concern (because, she isn’t concerned about the real issue). She didn’t even felt the need to clarify in her Facebook profile (because, she doesn’t want to spoil the media attention).

Binita Baral, the ‘Chapali Heights‘ fame model/actress, has been in and out of controversy since she enter the Nepali movie industry. At first she was kicked out of a movie, without compensation, after she had already signed the deal.
