Miss Nepal 2012 and ‘Gajalu’ debut actress Shristi Shrestha met with an accident and was admitted to a hospital in Kathmandu. Shristi later confirmed the accident by sharing a photo of herself with a cast on her hand.
As expected, the accident caused various types of rumours in the film industry. Let me list out the rumours that went around:
- Shristi tried to commit suicide. The reason was told to be the issues with the ‘Lahure’ team. Shristi is currently shooting for her next movie ‘Lahure’ being produced by Sunil Rawal. (may be untrue)
- It is rumoured that there was an issue between the producer, Durgesh Banner (Sunil Rawal) and the director Nigam Shrestha. Shristi was not happy when the producers decided to kick the director of Nigam out of the film team. The movie is in the last stage of shooting and removal of the director from the team is yet to be confirmed.(unconfirmed)
- Shristi met with life-threatening accident. (not true)
To clear the issue Shristi shared her photo and a short statement about her condition.
