Kanchhi, from one lion’s den to another, escapes Kri but clashes with Mangalam

The clash between two of the most awaited movies of the year has been avoided after ‘Kanchhi’ decided to re-schedule the release date of the movie. Earlier, both ‘Kri’ and ‘Kanchhi’ had announced the release of the movie on February 9, 2018. Anmol’s highly awaited movie was delayed more than once before. I had also prepared a video report on the release date controversy earlier (video attached at the end of the post.)

Now, Shweta Khadka, has told that she is willing to get flexible and let ‘Kri’ release on that day. The new schedule, a week later, on February 16, 2018 isn’t risk-free either. That is because, Chhabi Raj Ojha’s movie ‘Mangalam’ is also releasing on February 16. Chhabi’s movie was previously scheduled to release on Dashain but was delayed to let ‘Chhakka Panja 2’ to release at that time. Although ‘Kanchhi’ has more publicity because of the sympathy towards Shweta, the widow of late Shree Krishna Shrestha, Chhabi’s movie can’t be undermined. Known as one of the top producers in the movie industry, most of Chhabi’s movie are successful.

Talking about the rescheduling, Shweta told, “I din’t want to clash with another movie like that. When I tried to contact the ‘Kri’ team they didn’t respond. Then, I decided to change the date.”

‘Kanchhi’ is directed by the director of ‘Kohinoor’, Aakash Adhikari. The movie features Dayahang Rai and Shweta Khadka in leading role.

Busy at Nepal Idol, Reema’s husband finds another girl, Barsha, to marry

It has only been two years, I wrote and made a video about the marriage of actress Reema Bishowkarma with Robert BK. It is a shocking news that her husband has engaged to Barsha Rasaili of Morang. Reema or Robert hadn’t told anything about their relationship recently. According to the sources close to Reema, she wasn’t happy by the marriage recently.

But, they had recently stopped sharing photos of each other. Reema has also deleted her photos with Robert in her social media account.

Do you know Nikhil Upreti and Sanchita Luitel children?

It might sound like a puzzle, but it is not:

Nikhil Upreti has three children. But his wife, Sanchita Luitel has only two children. Who is the third?

Well, Nikhil has two wives. Although he is still married to both of them, he is seen mostly with Sanchita and his children with her. The eldest son, from his first wife, seem to be left out. I made this conclusion based on the review of the Facebook profiles of Sanchita Luitel and Kopila Upreti. While Sanchita is sharing photos of Nikhil with his children in her profile, Kopila doesn’t share photos of Nikhil with his son. As Nikhil doesn’t have a Facebook account, his wives are the sources of his information.

Sanchita Luitel’s marriages

Beautiful actress Sanchita Luitel was still in her teens when she decided to get married. The first marriage, with Aakash Shah didn’t go well from the beginning. The families were not happy by the marriage. After a short while they decided to separate and divorced.

Friday Release – Deepjyoti (Rajani KC first film)

The first film actress Rajani KC signed was ‘Deepjyoti’. But, she debuted in Chhabi Raj Ojha’s film ‘Loafer’ and failed to impress the viewers. But, ‘Pardeshi’ became a blockbuster hit, establishing Rajani as one of the successful actress in the film industry.

Because of the election time in Nepal, film producers are reluctant to release new movies. That is one of the reasons, the movie ‘Deepjyoti’ has got more than 80 theatres on its own. The movie featuring Khusbu Khadka, Rajani KC, Saroj Khanal, Nir Shah, Pramod Deep, Puskar Regmi and others, is made under NP Films banner. The movie is directed by Narayan Mainali.

Which might be an indication that Sapana is not going to be an actress. In addition to that, Sapana has also told an online magazine that she might consider going for PhD.

At the time of election, every citizen are inclined towards one political force or the others. But, as the voting in an election is secret and people don’t need to tell who they have voted for, one doesn’t need to tell about political inclination. But, the artists we are active politically have to show their artistic talent for the party or the candidate they endorse. Here are the list of popular artists and their political inclination.

Komal Oli – RPP to UML

Singer and journalist Komal Oli decided to go into full time politics and resigned from the Radio Nepal job a while ago. But, as soon she was elected the central committee member of Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) the party divided into two parties. After that, she decided to join CPN UML. Although Komal wasn’t allowed to represent the party in the election Now, she is promoting the party in the election.

Komal Oli had expected to get ticket to represent CPN UML at the Dang Constituency 3 in the election. But, things didn’t go as she expected. Now, she is participating in the election campaign. Based on her previous stances, there is no gurantee that she will continue to represent the party.

Radhika Hamal – Nepali Congress

Well known singer Radhika Hamal has chosen Nepali Congress to sing the election songs. Hamal had also participate in the local election but, was defeated.

Hamal is asking the people to vote for the candidates of Congress in the current election.

Badri Pangeni, CPN UML

Well known singer of ‘Sasurali ma’ and other popular folk singer is affiliated to CPN UML and Bam Gathabandhan in this election. He sings songs promoting the party, the leaders KP Oli and Prachanda. He says that he is not worried about being tagged a party-singer because he had been doing that for the last 23 years.

Although he will be singing election songs during the election, he will still be a singer and will sing for the people and art.

Manoj Gajurel – UML and Maoist


Known for his comedy caricature, Manoj Gajurel is also asking the people to vote for CPN UML and CPN Maoist candidates in the election. He has been active member of CPN UML in the past and he is open about his political inclination.

Manoj says that an artist is free to choose the political party they support. He also believes his fans won’t be disappointed because of his political activities.

Actress Karishma has transformed herself from a fully devoted actress to a fully devoted political leader after joining Naya Shakti party of Baburam Bhattarai. Although the party is yet to be recognized by the people, she is actively campaigning for the party and its leaders. She is also one of the candidate in the election.

But, her candidacy was withdrawn when she wasn’t registered as a voter. A while ago she left the party and joined RPP with Komal Oli. While Komal Oli has left the party Rekha decided to leave Kamal Thapa and join the party faction of Pashupati Shumsher JBR.

Rekha’s activities in political parties seem to be having negative impact in her popularity. The proof is her latest release, ‘Rudrapriya’. Although the movie features two of the top actors of the Nepali film industry, people didn’t go to theatre to watch it.

In the election, Rekha went to Sindhpalchowk in the election campaign of Pashupati Shumsher.
