Producer Actresses in Nepali films
Almost all of the actresses in the Nepali film industry had tired their luck in producing movies. But, being a producer is a lot of responsibilities, not an easy task. The history of the producer actresses (and actors) have proved it more than once. Those who are successful are also backed by dedicated producers like Rekha Thapa, Jharana Thapa and Deepa Shree Niraula. Despite of being backed by her producer husband, Karishma Manandhar has failed to impressed her viewers by her home production movies.
