Scandals and the movie industry go hand-in-hand. But, sex scandals are tragic in nature. People need to be more tolerant in sex related issues. I have compiled a video report on the top 5 sex scandals involving the Nepali movie industry personalities.
Watch the video report:
I have discussed about four actresses and a singer.
Shrisha Karki – A photo of Shrisha was published in Jana Astha weekly magazine in 2002. Shrisha committed suicide three days after the incident. The issue created a huge protest on street.
In January I wrote about the top 5 controversial actresses in the Nepali movie industry. The post got a lot of viewers and the accompanying video is one of the most viewed videos in YouTube Channel. (I am preparing a video report on Top 5 Tattoo beauties which is coming soon.)
The controversial actress list was:
- Rekha Thapa (posts tagged Rekha thapa)
- Namrata Shrestha (Posts tagged Namrata Shrestha)
- Sushma Karki (posts tagged Sushma Karki)
- Pooja Lama (posts tagged Pooja Lama)
- Sumina Ghimire (Posts tagged Sumina Ghimire)
Now, I have one more Top 5 list: Top 5 sex scandals in the Nepali movie industry. The list has two repetations – Namrata Shrestha and Pooja Lama.
- Shrisha Karki (Read Shrisha Karki Biography)
- Namrata Shrestha
- Pooja Lama
- Jyoti Khadka
- Anju Panta
Sex scandals are more tragic than being controversial. Controversies are sometimes good for the celebrity, but sex scandals have done more harm than good. Watch the video report:
Controversial actresses report:
I have prepared a video report on five actresses who started their acting career in their childhood. These actresses didn’t know about their future as actresses, when they acted in their first movies. Out of the five actresses, three are considered some of the top actresses in the Nepali movie industry. Two actresses discontinued acting after acting in some movies.

Do you know who is most excited to win an award in an award ceremony?
The first time winners are the most excited and enthusiastic when an award is announced. But, when the winner of the Best Newcomer Award doesn’t show up in an award ceremony to receive the award, there is something seriously wrong. I don’t know if that had happened in the other award ceremonies as well but, I felt it odd when the winner of Best Newcomer award, Samragyee RL Shah, didn’t show up to receive the award in NFDC National Award ceremony, held recently.
I think, that was because, she had already won the award and there is no charm in winning more than one awards for the same movie and same role.
I wonder, how Namrata Shrestha could even feel happy – winning awards for the same thing – again and again, and again for the fifth time. Yes, she won Best Actress awards for the same role in ‘Classic’ – five different awards:
- National Award
- FAAN Award
- D Cine Award
- LG Film Award
- NFDC Award
I am pretty sure she will win more awards in future. If I were her, after winning the Nation Award, from the President of Nepal, Bidhya Devi Bhandari, I wouldn’t have attended any other award ceremonies.
In the Nepali film award organized by Gopi Krishna Movies, the ‘Classic’ actors Namrata Shrestha and Aryan Sigdel were chosen the best actors. But, the winner of the best movie award was ‘Pashupati Prasad’. The Best director award went to Dinesh Raut, the director of ‘Classic’. The editor of ‘Classic’ Surendra Poudel also won the Best Editor award.

- Best Movie – Pashupati Prasad
- Best Commercial movie – Dreams
Two new movies ‘Gaatho’ and ‘Driver Dai’ have released in theatre today, on September 16, 2016. Although, the targeted audience of ‘Driver Dai’ is different from ‘Gaatho’ there is an issue that can affect the business of these movies. The movie released last week, ‘Chhaka Panja’ is still going on strong in all the theatres. These movies will certainly be affected by the popularity of the last week’s release.
In an event held in Kathmandu on September 8, 2016 actress Namrata Shrestha had been awarded the fourth award for her role in ‘Classic’.
Namrata Shrestha was awarded the best actress award in:
- National Film Award 2016 (Winners of National Film Awards)
- FAAN 2016 (Winners of FAAN Award)
- D Cine Award 2016 (Winners of D Cine Award)
- LG Films Award 2016 (This post)
The best actor award winner Dayahang Rai has also won the award two times. In other two times, Namrata’s partner in ‘Classic’ Aryan Sigdel was awarded. The best movie award was handed over to ‘Pashupati Prasad’.
