Jenny Kunwar had acted in a number of Nepali movies including ‘Dhoom’, ‘Maidan’ ‘Don’ and other films. I have shared a number of her movies in the past.

In addition to acting she had given voice to a number of songs and had also made music videos in past. Last year, she was seen in Pashupati area dancing in prayers. Based on her activities in the past, it is believed that she was depressed.

I will update this post with more details after a while.
Rest in peace Jenny Kunwar.

Jenny’s original name is Janaki Kunwar.

(A part of 2010 Dec 22 report) After producing Ghayal and Hulchal, the female producer and actress Jenny Kunwar has decided to halt the production business. She has started to spend more time in meditation and spiritual studies. None of the two movies with names copied from Hindi movies could leave any impression to the audience. Although Ghayal could raise it’s investment, Hulchal was a total loss.

Jenny says that it was much more difficult to market the movie than producing. Film critics say that movies produced by Jenny have no originality as the name themselves were borrowed from Hindi movies.

According to Jenny, film production is a stressful job. She hopes meditation relieve the tension related to various problem she has and she had plans to go to India and other countries to continue in her spiritual journey.
