This post was originally written and posted on Oct 31, 2008. I am making an update on the post by adding details how Nepali celebrities celebrate the festival. I have also added a video introduction of the festival. I have included the details of the celebration of three US-return artists of Nepali movie industry:
Actress Jal Shah is in Nepal for Dashain and Tihar this year with her 8-years-old daughter Kalas. She is planning to cook ‘sel’ the sweet bread popular during tihar. Last year, Jal had offered tika to actor Dilip Rayamajhi.
Actor Ramesh Upreti is not celebrating this year because of the death of his grandfather. Although there wonâ€™t be Tika and wonâ€™t be much fun at home, he will meet and celebrate with his friends.
Ashishma Nakarmi doesnâ€™t have brothers. So, she hasnâ€™t celebrated bhai-tika yet. She enjoys the festival with her friends and family.

About ‘Fulai Fulko Mausam Timilai’
The movie ‘Fulai Fulko Mausam Timilai’ produced by the director Dinesh DC was highly promoted and had a high expectation of success. During the release of the movie released with Bhuwan KC’s movie ‘Dreams’, DC had used all types of promotional stunt. He had also accused Anmol KC of being unskilled actor. But, ‘Dreams’ became successful movie and ‘FFMT’ failed to attract the viewers. Dinesh DC had released the audio of the movie at the residence of the Prime Minister of Nepal, KP Oli. Oli was criticized for his statement during the ceremony. He was also criticized for the event at the time of crisis in the country.
The movie featured the choreography of Ramji Lamichhane, music by Suresh Adhikari, cinematography by Mankrishna Maharjan, editing by Pritam Pandey, background score by Alish Karki, VFX by Ramesh Man Shrestha, action by NB Maharjan, story by director Dinesh DC and the name of the producer is Amir Ali. The playback singers in the movie are Rajesh Payal Rai, Binika Pradhan, Raj Sigdel, and Deepa Lama.
