It is not only in the Nepali movie industry, divorce among Nepali couple has been in the increasing trend these days. This might be because, compromising is not in the cards of today’s youth. I think, there is nothing wrong to get out of the relationship that is not working out. But, divorce also brings a lot of pain and problems to the both the couple involved. The traditional Nepali society has made it even worse by tagging them ‘bad example’ to the society.
This post was originally written on Jan 29, 2012. In the mean time I had updated it to reflect the changes in the status of Nepali artists. I think, it is the time to rewrite the whole post.
Rekha Thapa and Chhabi Raj Ojha
2016 – Rekha Thapa and Chhabi Raj Ojha have officially divorced after 4 years of unofficial divorce after a decade of living together. They signed the legal paper and make it legal in August of 2016. Right after the divorce, Chhabi has told that he is planning to get married for the fourth time. Will he marry the actress Shilpa Pokharel or is he using the controversy only to promote his movie – that is a huge mystery of the Nepali movie industry.
While shooting and post-production of ‘Himmatwali’ Rekha is having an affair with Sudarshan Gautam. But, right after the release of the movie, Rekha reportedly dumped Sudarshan.
In the film awards held in this year either Dayahang Rai had won the best actor award or Aryan Sigdel. For the first time, Kamana Film Award 2016 has awarded Saugat Malla the award for his role in ‘Fanko’.

The Nepali movie ‘Karodpati’ is a presentation of actor Bhuwan KC in his home production company Kajal Films banner. The success of the movie established Bhuwan KC as the successful producer of Nepali film industry. The story of the movie is supposedly written by Kajal KC while the script and the dialogue is written by Brajesh Khanal. Kajal KC is the daughter of Bhuwan KC by his first wife Bijaya KC. Kajal lives in the USA with her mother.
Full movie in a single part:
A biography of Bhuwan KC was being written in 2015. Before earthquake I had reported about the completion of writing but, Bhuwan was yet to review the book. After that, a lot of things happened in Nepal – earthquake was the most dreadful thing that happened in a couple of weeks after I wrote the article.
After earthquake, Bhuwan completed his directorial debut movie ‘Dreams’. The movie was successful beyond expectation. The movie established Samragyee RL Rana as the most sought after actress in the Nepali movie industry. That was also the hat trick of hit movies of Bhuwan’s son Anmol KC. But, the biography of Bhuwan KC was forgotten.
Summary of things about the biography:
- Kamal Dhakal of Ghost writing Nepal was writing the biography
- Ghost Writing Nepal had made a deal of Rs. 235,000 for the book. The deal was signed in January 2015.
- The book was initially titled ‘Playboy’. Bhuwan objected to it and renamed ‘Superstar’.
- The book was delayed when Bhuwan didn’t finished reviewing the book in time (April 2015).
It seems, Bhuwan KC has already married actress Jiya KC. By the way, Jiya was posing in a photo between Bhuwan’s mother and father with Bhuwan KC and Anmol KC by the side, it seems she was a part of the family.
Watch the video report:
Bhuwan KC and Jiya KC love story
The rumour of the affair between Bhuwan KC and Jiya KC started in 2012.
In 2012 there were reports of:
- Bhuwan KC visiting ‘ATM’ shooting sets to meet Jiya.
- They were also spotted together in restaurants.
- In one interview, Jiya had also admitted going to Bhuwan KC’s home and staying there for a night.
- Jiya had told that she would love to marry Bhuwan KC.
- But, both of them had told that they were only friends and they didn’t have an affair (and they continued to say that till now).
Nepali Movie – Dreams
Starring – Anmol KC, Samragyee RL Shah, Sandhya KC etc.
Director – Bhuwan KC
The superhit movie ‘Dreams’ was the third movie of Anmol KC that was superhit. The movie established actress Samragyee RL Shah as a credible actress. After the success of the movie, Samragyee has been one of the highest paid actresses in Nepali movie industry.

The following video lists eight Nepali actresses who had preferred an already married man to an unmarried one, to get married. I think, some of them might have preferred a married man instead of an unmarried man because of their experience in dealing with women. Unmarried men usually feel insecure when dealing with a woman. Married men are more confident with women and know how to please them. Is that the main reason the following list of actresses married an already married man?
Let’s watch the following video report on the actresses before a detailed discussion on the topic:
Was Sharmila Malla looking for an experienced man?
Among the actresses mentioned in the video, actress Sharmila Malla is the only actress who had been the fourth wife, others are either third or the second wives of their husbands. It is surprising how Sharmila roped-in her husband, Krishna Malla, into her love and stopped his marrying-spree. Krishna Malla had already married three women in a young age but stopped marrying new girls after marrying Sharmila in the last 30-years they are living together.
Now, the main question, was Sharmila attracted to Krishna Malla because of his previous experiences with various women? May be, experience pays off. But, at the time of her marriage, Sharmila had no idea that Krishna Malla had married other women before her. In an interview, Sharmila told that she didn’t know about Krishna Malla’s earlier marriages until she gave birth to her son. Based on Sharmila’s statement, although Krishna Malla didn’t tell her about his previous marriages at the time of their marriage, he must have shown the understanding and the talents that only a well experienced man can show to a girl.
If common saying is to be believed, wives are the other half of a person. We know the actors very much, but it seems, we don’t care much of the other half of the celebrities. Recently, I prepared a video about the wives of the top 10 actors in the Nepali movie industry. While preparing the list, I felt like adding the names of some additional actors at the end after talking about the top 10.
Now, I feel like finding out all the wives of all the actors of the Nepali movie industry. Before I start listing the wives of the actors, you can watch the details about the top 10 actors in the following video. In addition to the wives I have also mentioned about the number of their children.
Before diving into the full list, let me list the top 5 actors in the list and the reason why they were listed in the top position:

Movies like ‘Pashupati Prasad’, ‘Jhola’, ‘Kabaddi Kabaddi’, ‘Resham Filili’, ‘Prem Geet’ are some of the movies that were pirated. Some of those movies were the censor copies sent to the government body of censoring movies, Film Development Board (FDB).
