At the time of Dashain holiday, two new movies ‘Kismat 2’ and ‘Subba Saab’ are released in theatres on October 7, 2016. The movie ‘Kismat 2’ is a Chhabiraj Production movie – a sequel of a hit movie ‘Kismat’, but made in a new story. Another movie ‘Subba Saab’ is director Raju Adhikari’s presentation. These movies are released at the time ‘Chhaka Panja’ is keeping its holdover for a month.
The movie got a lot of media coverage because of the rumour of the marriage between Chhabi Raj Ojha and the actress Shilpa Pokharel. Similar rumour during the release of ‘Lazza’ had resulted in the success of the movie. It is to be seen if repeating similar rumour at the time of the release of another movie will be equally helpful. Directed by Rishi Lamichhane ‘Kismat 2’ features Shilpa Pokharel with Prithivi Raj and Kishor Khatiwoda.

At the time Trilok married his girlfriend, his mother had died. Both Trilok and his wife had come to Nepal to mourn the death. Now, after things settled, they decided to perform a formal marriage.
Marriage of celebrities to foreign nationals is not much common in Nepal. So, I looked into the celebrities who have chosen foreign partner of their lives. The result is the following video.

I have compiled the list of seven Nepali actresses with the first pay they got for their role in a movie. The actresses include: Gauri Malla, Neeta Dhungana, Shristi Shrestha, Keki Adhikari, Neeta Dhungana, Surabina Karki, Jharana Thapa, Deepa Shree Niraula
Watch the video report:
In addition to these actresses the following list contain some of the Nepali actors who had told their first income:
Dayahang Rai was paid Rs. 10,000 for the role in his first movie, ‘Anagarik’. Actor Aryan Sigdel had worked for free in ‘Kismat’. The producer Chhabi Raj Ojha hadn’t paid any money to Aryan. Similarly actor Jiwan Luitel also worked for free. He also debuted in Chhabi Raj Ojha’s movie. Based on these facts, I can safely tell that all the actors who debuted in Chhabi Ojha’s movies didn’t get any pay for their roles.
