A program was held by NEFTA last week (June 20) to announce the 8th edition of the Nepali movie award program. The announcement was made among various film artists and technicians by cutting a cake and clapping a clap board.
NEFTA also welcomed the new chief of Film Development Board (FDB), Raj Kumar Rai. Raj Kumar suggested the organizers to have young film makers in the jury.
According to Manoj KC, the movies released from Baisakh 1, 2017 to Chaitra 30, 2071 will be included in the award. Dates and other details of the program is yet to be revealed although the program is scheduled at the festive season Dashain – Tihar.
The mud-filled festival of farmers, celebrated on Asar 15, is now largely show off rather than an actual festival. In the past, when most of the people in Nepal were farmers, it was the festival to start the cropping season. The marriage between work and fun is filled with celebration. These days, Asar 15 has been the celebration for photo-op and tourism. Nepali actresses have taken this opportunity to shot music videos and modeling photos in paddy field.
Here are the collection of some of the photos of various Nepali actresses getting dirty to take photos.
Actress Binita Baral is the only actress who is actively involved in farming. After she started farming, she hasn’t appeared in any movies. Binita had actually worked in her 10-ropani plot. Binita is finalizing her debut novel ‘Juino’ and her upcoming movie ‘Umang’ is told to be in post-production. More photos of Binita in nepaliactress.com.
Sanchita had eloped with actor Nikhil Upreti few years ago. It was a run-away marriage and she didn’t become a bride in that marriage. But, she has recently become a bride for an upcoming movie, ‘Khatarnak’.
In the movie, she is marrying the debuting actor Dinesh KC. The movie also features actress Harshika Shrestha. Harshika met with an accident and broke her leg during the shooting of the movie in Hetauda.
Sanchita Luitel made a comeback in ‘Nai Nabhannu La 3’ after being absent in the film industry for about four years. In that time she married Nikhil and gave birth to two children. At the time she left the industry, Sanchita was considered the most potential actress in the industry.
The producer of successful movies like ‘Saayad’ (watch ‘Saayad’ here) and ‘Hostel’ (watch ‘Hostel’ here), Sunil Rawal, has announced the sequel of ‘Saayad’. The announcement has been made even before the release of ‘Hostel’ sequel – ‘Hostel Returns’.
‘Sayaad 2’ was actually announced even before the release of ‘Hostel’. But, after the release of the movie ‘Hostel’ and, the success it had gained, ‘Hostel Returns’ was prioritized over ‘Saayad 2’. We hope, this announcement is not like that previous one. Like the previous announcement, no details, except for the title concept, is finalized now.
In his Facebook post, Sunil has shared a logo ‘Saayad 2’ and has told that the work has already started in the making of the movie. Rawal said that the sequel will feature new artists like his previous movies. In the three movies Sunil Rawal has produced so far, he hasn’t repeated the main actors.
After being absent for a year after her marriage last year, actress Richa Singh Thakuri is producing a movie titled ‘Super Gorkhe’. The shooting of the movie directed by her husband Gajendra Thapa is in its last stage. The movie featuring Richa in leading role also features Nirajan Luitel, Suraj Singh Thakuri and Kamana Bhujel in main roles.
Richa Singh Thakuri and Gajendra Thapa were married on June 20, 2014. That was a month after the release of her movie ‘Khudkilo’ (watch ‘Khudkilo’ here).
The shooting of ‘Super Gorkhe’ was done in various locations in Dharan and Biratnager. The action movie features action of Chandra Panta and cinematography of Saurav Lama.
