Film actor and producer Keshav Bhattarai has been appointed the new chief of the Nepal government’s film authority body, Film Development Board (FDB). The board chairman Neikita Poudel had recently resigned from the post over her controversial marriage with Rabi Lamichane. The minister wasn’t happy with Poudel, who was appointed by the previous Nepali Congress government. The government had removed Nekita from the post but, the Supreme Court had reinstalled her in the post against the will of the government.
After Neikita married Rabi Lamichhane, minister Gokul Baskota, was highly critical of Poudel. He had also asked his officials to start the process of her removal from the post. He finally resigned herself. Nekita’s marriage is considered to be the main reason behind resignation. Nekita had told that she would work in the social works started by Rabi Lamichhane including the construction of a hospital, Raskot Hospital, in remote location. Rabi’s divorce prior to the marriage also created a lot of headlines in the Nepali media. I had also prepared a video report on the issue.
The cabinet meeting held on Thursday, March 20, 2019, had appointed Keshav Bhattarai as the new chairman of FDB.
After Neikita resigned, a number of hopefuls including director Suchitra KC, Naresh Kumar KC and Yogesh Ghimire had submitted their interest to the post.
Like the past years, Nepali celebrities celebrated the festival of colours by promoting their own products. The actors and actresses promoted their films, others promoted their respective products. The festival has proved to be more commercialized these days.

The owners of a YouTube channel Fulchowki Media Raj Kumar Kunwar and program host Laxmi Moktan were arrested with controversial model Pari Tamang by the Nepal government. The channel owner and the model were arrested on the complaints of local people under cybercrime charges.
The YouTube channel of Raj Kumar Kunwar was used to share interviews of singers and model and their intimate experiences. The interviewer usually asks about their personal relationship and their personal experiences rather than their professional achievement. The interviews of models like Pari Tamang were very popular in the channel. The channel having more than 200 thousand subscribers has about 1000 videos at the time of this writing. Some of the videos in the channel have views in excess of 2 million and there are a lot with millions of views. But, the videos are considered not suitable for most audience.
In the past, many videos were removed after viewers complained about the content of the video. This is the first time the government has stepped in to control the social media YouTube for the content shared in the video sharing site.
Anmol KC gets a lot of hype and he makes his films successful. But, the actresses opposite to Anmol KC don’t get any credits at all. The only actress that made it big by debuting in Anmol KC films is Samragyee RL Shah. After debuting in ‘Dreams’ she did ‘A Mero Hajur 2’ and now, in the third sequel of the movie, Anmol KC is being featured with Jharana Thapa’s daughter Suhana Thapa.
The ‘Kri’ debut actress Aditi Budhathoki was a social media celebrity before she worked in the film. She was approached by a number of other film makers to be featured in their films. But, Aditi had rejected all those proposals and finally accepted to work with Anmol in ‘Kri’. When compared to other films of Anmol, ‘Kri’ wasn’t that successful. So, Aditi also couldn’t create any hype in the Nepali film industry.
Now, Aditi has returned back to Mumbai and is trying to get into Bollywood mainstream media. It seems, she has given up her hopes to be successful in Nepali movies. A while ago, a music video featuring Aditi was released. The video has millions of views and the views were because of Aditi featured in the cover.
The video is a proof that she has a value in the entertainment industry.
