The affair between the ‘Chapali Height 2’ debut actors Paramita RL Rana and Ashirman Desraj Joshi Shrestha had been one of the most talked about affair in the town. But, after three-years-long affair, these two love birds have chosen to walk in separate paths. According to latest news, Paramita and Ashirman have confirmed that the relationship has come to the end. Ashirman reportedly has found another unknown girl. In an interview to an online magazine, Pratima has told that they have decided to focus more on their career and stop seeing each other. The magazine claims that it has been weeks they haven’t seen each other.
When I checked their instagram profile, I also found that both Pratima and Ayushma have also removed the photos of each others.
Who is Pratima RL Rana ?
Pratima is an actress who debuted in ‘Chapali Height 2’. She is yet to sign in another movie yet. But, she is a well known model who had also won some beauty contest titles. She is also a singer who has done some cover versions of well known songs.
Like previous years, celebrities have shared their photos and videos in social network. I had posted a collection of photos shared early by some celebrities. This is a latest update with more photos.

I have compiled a video of the Holi celebration of Rekha Thapa from 2010 to the last year’s Holi, Holi 2016. As the Holi 2017 is approaching (the festival is on March 12, 2017) I looked back to the history and compiled the list so that I can update it with the new information on the current Holi. I will share the updated video on or after March 12. The following video lists:

Watch 7 years of holi in less than 5 minutes in the following video:
Priyanka Karki, the busiest actress and one of the most attractive women in Nepal (according to a Saphahik poll), has turned 30 on February 27, 2017.
The video also includes the birthday wishes of actress Keki Adhikari to Priyanka Kakri. Keki Adhikari is currently busy in the shooting of her upcoming movie ‘Razza Rani’. The Razza of the movie, Najir Hussien is also seen with Keki wishing best wishes to Priyanka Karki.
The actress born on Saturday, February 27, 1987 (Fagun 15, 2044 BS) had become Miss Teen in 2005. After that she started her career in media and entertainment industry. Although she had also worked as a child actress in a director Narayan Puri movie ‘Mahadevi’, Priyanaka got the lime light only after she started working in TV and entertainment industry.
The festival of Shiva Ratri is synonyms with Bhang, dhaturo and Ganja (Marijuana or Cannabis). Although the use of ganja is prohibited in other times, it is usually free during the time of shiva ratri. In the festival, youths and older people go to Pashupati area to smoke ganja.
Shiva Ratri for different age group
- Children and youths – they ask for alm on road by blocking the road and asking for money. The collected money is usually used to purchase wood for the fire used in the night.
- Married women fast and worship lord Shiva for the longevity of their husbands.
- Unmarried women also fast and worship Shiva and ask for the husband like him.
- Older males – worship shiva and enjoy the festival by drinking juices and laddu containing bhang and smoking ganja.
Fasting for their husband and future husband is a tradition in declining trend. I believe, that is the remains of the male dominated society. Continue reading

I hope not !
Report 1 – Priyanka Karki’s ex-husband, a resident of New York, Rochak Mainali, is going to marry Anshuma Kharel in the USA.
Report 2 – Priyanka Karki had fainted in the sets of upcoming movie, ‘Radhey’ at Kalinchowk of Dolkha.
Both of these reports are recent reports. There is nothing to worry about Priyanka as she has recovered and finished the shooting of the song and has already returned back to Kathmandu. But, are these reports related in any ways?
After returning back from the UK and the USA, it was Priyanka Karki’s first public function in a couple of months in Nepal. She went to the premier of Keki Adhikari’s new movie ‘Love Sasha’ on January 10 in a revealing dress although the weather wasn’t that much suitable for such type of dresses. The black dress was open on the front and the photographers were able to capture some cleavage of the actress while she was adjusting the hem.
Watch a video report about Priyanka and the event:
Priyanka’s pose with the co-actor of her upcoming movie ‘Happy Days’ Sanjay Gupta was also the talk of the evening. They had shown their intimate relationship during the photo shot. Priyanka and Sanjay were in UK for the shooting of ‘Happy Days’ a while ago. The movie also features Dayahang Rai. After the completion of the shooting in the UK, Priyanka had gone to the USA for a short trip and returned back to Nepal a few days back.

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.

USA election doesn’t have much impact to Nepal. But, we are politically so much conscious that every geo-political situation all over the world interests us.
Some Nepali celebrities however are US citizens. Nepali celebrities don’t prefer to reveal the fact about their US citizenship because of the the lack of dual-citizenship provision in Nepal. The celebrities like Saroj Khanal, Suryamala Sharma, Premraja Mahat, Kristi Mainali, Sudhanshu Joshi, Sapana Shree, Harish Mathema, and Krishna Murari Dhungel are said to be US citizens.

Video report about the US Election result:
USA being the world leader in arms and economy has a potential of influencing everybody. Some of the stuffs I noticed about the US Election:
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.
Watch the video report :
