Actress Rekha Thapa’s upcoming movie ‘Kali’ is currently in floor. Rekha has shared some photos from the shooting and it seems her role is confusing in lights of her past movies.
In the past few movies, Rekha Thapa has been featured in similar roles. The female oriented movies are named similar and confusing – ‘Kali’ is currently in production and ‘Durga’, ‘Rawan’ and ‘Lanka’ are already released. Although Rekha has told that her roles in these movies are different, she looks same (in police uniform) in ‘Lanka’ and ‘Kali’ (see the photo below).
A Nepali movie based on the life of the martyr Bhimdutta Pant is being shot in the location in far-western Nepal. The martyr Bhimdutta is known for his fight against cast system and Rana autocracy. More than 60 percent of the movie is scheduled to be shot in the Western Nepal.
In the history of Nepali movies, this will be the first movie based on the life of a martyr. The movie titled ‘Bhimdutt’ is being produced and directed by Himgyap Tasi Lama. The movie will also feature songs based on the quotations of Bhimdutta and will showcase the attractions of Western Nepal.
True to her skin color, actress Rekha Thapa is doing a role of Kali in her upcoming movie ‘Kali’. Although made under own banner, Rekha Films and many successful movies were made under the banner, this is the first time she is playing the role of a producer. After Rekha divorced Chhabi Raj Ojha he registered a new production house and she is left to go on her own.
The first movie of Chhabi Raj production was jointly produced by Rekha Films and Chhabi Raj Films. Now, Chhabi has started his own ‘Lofar’ without Rekha and Rekha has gone to the floor with ‘Kali’ without Chhabi. At this time, I recall Rekha posting a photo of herself and Chhabi exactly two years ago with quote – "with my miyau…" Time sure has changed a lot.
In OFA 2070 award, ‘Rhythm’ was declared the most popular film released in 2069.
In the program organized in Rastriya Naachghar, Jamal the winners of OFA 2070 award were declared on June 9, 2013.
The top actress of Nepali film industry, Rekha Thapa, has joined CPN (Maoist) in a formal ceremony held in the party’s office in Parisdanda. In the program held to welcome new members Rekha and CPN UML leader nad ex-minister Urmila Aryal.
In the program Rekha told that she comes from a political family and she has chosen the party as it is the only party advocating the poor.
Rekha’s ex-husband Chhabiraj Ojha has started the shooting of his next movie without Rekha Thapa. The second movie of his production house Chhabiraj Films ‘Loafer’ (Lofer) is being shot in Godawari, Lalitpur.
Talking about Rekha being out of the movie, Chhabiraj told that the movie doesn’t have a role suitable for Rekha. The movie features Aryan Sigdel, Rajani KC, Dayahang Rai, and Sushil Raj pandey in main roles. The movie is being directed by Aditya Bikram Lamsal and is being shot by cinematographer Madan Kashyap Ghimire. The shooting of the movie is expected to be complete in a month and it is scheduled to release in Dashain (on Fulpati day) this year.
Movies are usually premiered in theaters and hotels but, this time, a movie is premiered in a most unusual place, a jail. Rekha Thapa‘s upcoming movie, ‘Hamesha’ was premiered among 600 convicted criminals in the jail in Dillibazar. Nepali Congress leader Khum Bahadur Khadka who is serving his jail terms was also among the viewers.
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.

UPDATE: In response to this article, Rekha has stated that the statement wasn’t made on anybody’s support or protest.
Nepali actress Rekha Thapa has supported Sumina Ghimire and accused the journalists at onlinekhabar of creating such an environment. She accused journalists being irresponsible to the private lives of actresses and causing unnecessary tension.
In a page-long statement titled ‘We artists aren’t robots’, Rekha had quoted the incidents of the death of actress Shrisha Karki and actress Jesika Khadka (Jyoti Khadka). She also accused journalist of focusing on Namrata Shrestha on the case of the release of her sex video and not talking about the male involved in the video.
In a few of the recent incidents it is seen that, Nepali actresses are the most irresponsible people in the film industry. Ethics and responsibilities are tied with their professionalism. Let’s analyze some of the recent incidents involving Nepali actresses:
Sumina Ghimire threat
The most recent incident, actress Sumina Ghimire threatened a journalist in a very unprofessional way. She could have sent the same message more effectively by stating it in a diplomatic manner. After the release of the audio of her communication with the journalist, Sumina has shown how low she can stoop. It won’t be easy for Sumina to regain her popularity and respect in the film community.
Jharana Thapa smoking
Actress Jharana Thapa is one of the most successful actresses in the industry. In a latest photo released in her Facebook profile Jharana is seen enjoying Hukkah (Shisha) and blowing smoke in a restaurant in Kathmandu. Smoking is a personal choice but, advertising it by publicizing the photo in public is considered unprofessional. Public usually consider celebrities as their role models and some blindly copy everything their favorite celebrities do.
After the marijuana incident of Shivaratri, the relationship between Rekha Thapa and the Film Development Board (FDB) head Dharmendra Kumar Marbaita (Pappu) has been a topic of gossip in the film sector. Rekha had unsuccessfully attempted to get herself in Pappu’s place in FDB.
The FDB head Pappu had visited Dolkha with FDB employee to inspect the proposed Film city in the area on Thursday. On the next day, Rekha Thapa and Jharana Thapa had also visited Dolkha to worship in Dolkha Bhimsen temple. With them, journalist Prakash Subedi and Jharana husband Sunil Kumar Thapa had also visited the place.
The actress who had done all she could to get the FDB head post and the one who swiped the post from her were seen together in Shivaratri, sharing the same joint. Photos showing the Film Development Board head, Dharmendra Kumar Marbaita and actress Rekha Thapa wearing similar scarfs and having fun smoking marijuana filled cigarette was published in newspapers and online magazines.
