7 NRN Actresses in Nepali movies, Shristi Shrestha to Meruna Magar

The entries of Non Resident Nepali (NRN) actresses in the Nepali movie industry is a new trend. So far, there are seven Nepali film actresses who have their permanent homes abroad. If India is to be considered foreign and residents in India are to be considered NRN, the number can go up considerably. But, I am excluding residents of South Asia for this article. I think, Nepali communities in India like Sikkim and Darjeeling are not foreign. We have never thought Niruta Singh, Tripti Naadkar, Tulsi Ghimire, or Sushmita KC as foreign actresses although they have their parental home in India.

All of these NRN actresses are Nepali actresses and, I have no intention to alienate them. I wish more NRN actors and actress enter Nepali movie industry. A video report on 7 NRN actresses:

Let me discuss in detail about each of the 7 actresses:

Prapti Ghimire

Actress Prapti Ghimire, a resident of Germany, debuted in ‘Kathmandu’. Prapti had also won a debut actress award at that time. But, after ‘Kathmandu’ she didn’t return back to the Nepali movie industry.
