Read a detailed report on actress – journalist controversies.
A press meet was organized to tell about the movie releasing this Friday, ‘Sanjog’. In the event, the actress Sushma Karki got angry by the question of a journalist. The question was about Sushma’s previous release movie ‘Chalechha Batas Sustari’. The movie released targeting the Valentine Day of 2016 failed to attract viewers while the other two movies released on the same date – ‘Classic’ and ‘Premgeet’ became hit movies.
In the press meet, Sushma claimed that ‘Chalechha Batas Sustari’ was a hit movie. She also asked the journalists to do proper homework before asking her questions. She told, “I don’t need to tell what I am doing. It is your job to find out what I am doing.”

Two movies were released last Friday (I am a couple of days late this week to update on the Friday release). The movie released this week (on May 27, 2016) were director Ramesh Bogati’s movie ‘Kina Garen Maya’ and director Raju Aryal’s movie ‘Action’.
The movie ‘Action’ directed by Raju Aryal features the actor who used to be known by the title Angry Young Man, Shiva Shrestha. Although pretty old for the role, he is again featured in action role in the movie released last Friday. The movie features the clash of two different generations. The leader of the first generation is Shiva Shrestha and the second generation is represented by Pramod Deep. Actress Jenisha KC is also featured in leading role in the movie.
A clash between Namrata Shrestha, Sushma Karki and Pooja Sharma
On February 12, 2016 three awaited movies are being released in theater. Targeted for the Valentine Day, all three of them are love story movies. The movies ‘Classic’ features Namrata Shrestha with Aryan Sigdel, ‘Premgeet’ features Pooja Sharma and Pradeep Khadka and ‘Chalechha Batash Sustari’ features hot actress Sushma Karki in not-so-hot role. The clash between these three popular actresses is interesting in the Nepali film industry.
The movie featuring beautiful and talented actress Namrata Shrestha with the one of the top actors in the film industry, Aryan Sigdel is one of the most awaited movies in the Nepal. The movie presents a new type of story with both the leading characters being blind.
I have compiled the list of five top actresses in terms of the controversy they have created or were forced upon. The top ranking is based on the amount of the impact the controversy has done to them. Some had positive impact the have been stronger and others have failed to cope with it and have left the film industry. Here is the ranking (links to the posts with the actress tagged in them):
- Rekha thapa
- Namrata Shrestha
- Sushma Karki
- Pooja Lama
- Sumina Ghimire
A video report on these actresses:
Rekha Thapa tops the list because scandals have helped the actress in gaining the top position in the Nepali film industry. Rekha is an example to prove that scandals can be helpful. But, when we look into other actresses in Nepali film industry, Rekha proves to be an exception. Some of the most controversial stuffs of Rekha include:
A charity program titled ‘We will rise’ was held in Hong Kong recently. The program to help raise fund for earthquake relief was a successful and entertaining program in Hong Kong.
For the first time after returning back from the USA, actor Saroj Khanal went on a stage show in a foreign soil. He had performed with actress Karishma Manandhar in a musical titled ‘Priyasika Yaadharu’. Saroj and Sarita Giri performed in a play titled ‘Hamro Aawaz’. Actress Sushma Karki had danced in ‘himallai Dhakyo Kanchha…’
The greatest festival of women, Teej, is mostly a musical festival. The women wear attractive jewelries and clothes in red and dance to the songs composed specifically for the festival. Because of the commercial value of the songs, a lot of new songs are produced this year. It is surprising that the movie actresses have modeled in a lot of those movies. I have compiled a list of songs featuring various actresses.
Among the actresses featured in Teej songs, actress Neeta Dhungana is featured in a lot of them. Other actresses include Sushma Karki, Karishma Manandhar, Reema Bishowkarma, Melina Manandhar, Nandita KC, Benisha Hamal and others. Its not only the actresses, actor Rajesh Hamal is also featured in one of the latest Teej songs.
Teej Song featuring Rajesh Hamal
It has been quite a while since Rajesh Hamal has acted in a movie. He has however acted in a teej song titled ‘Hong Kong ko Lahure….’ by Bishnu Majhi. The video features Binu Subedi and Kajal Pandey with Rajesh. The video is directed by Shiva BK and made on the music and lyrics of Sundarmani Adhikari. Watch the video:

At the end of 2014, Sushma Karki had announced that she will no longer work in sex-themed movie. It is suspected that she had made such an announcement as she wasn’t included in the ‘Bindaas 3’ team (read about it in Nepaliactress).
In response to the horrific earthquake of Saturday, actress and model Sushma Karki has shed some tears. At the time of the earthquake Sushma was in Naubise area. She saw houses collapse in the area. Her brother also sustained a head injury and had to be stitched in the hospital.

Nepali film – Loot
Starring – Saugat Malla, Karma, Reecha Sharma, Dayahang Rai, Sirjana Subba, Prateek Raj Neupane, Sushil Raj Pandey, Sushma Karki etc.

Read xNepali review of ‘Loot’.
The story of the super hit movie of 2012, ‘Loot’ is written by the director, Nischal Basnet. The movie proved to be a relief at the time when the Nepali movie industry was going in a downward spirals. Actress and model Sushma Karki’s item dance ‘Undreko choli …’ established the actress as the hot actress in Nepali film industry. Most of the actors, new in the movie, are now well established actors in the industry and the movie represents a new start and the confidence of the Nepali film industry. Although 4 new Nepali movies were released on the day ‘Loot’ was released, the movie managed to become the top grossing movie of the year.
