In Nepal, pregnant women are fed beaten rice and yogurt (Dahi Chiura) to wish for the health of the mother and the unborn child. Three of the Nepali actresses, Rekha Thapa, Rejina Upreti, and Richa Ghimire gathered in an event organized at Arunima Lamsal‘s home in Kapan Kathmandu. They also invited another pregnant actress Sanchita Luitel in the ceremony.
What makes this event special is that, these five actresses, who are considered to be rivals in Nepali movie industry, have tried to prove everybody wrong by gathering in a place to celebrate the happiness of two of their colleagues.
Arunima is pregnant of 5 months and Sanchita is expecting next month. The Nepali media wasn’t informed about the event. Richa told that the event was private meeting, so no media was informed. In the event the actresses exchanged gifts
Among the five actresses, Rekha Thapa is told to be the one who doesn’t get along with both the pregnant actresses. Relationship between Arunima and Rekha once got in trouble in the past and they hadn’t worked together after their last movie Dhadkan. Rekha didn’t used to talk with Sanchita and her husband Nikhil Upreti. They also don’t do films together.
We hope the intimate meetings with the actresses have opened a new avenue in their relationship. A hope that, they will coordinate and collaborate in their future project, might be a bit far fetched. It is reasonable enough to expect them to show a minimum courtesy when they bump on each other.
Richa had met Sanchita when she went to Mumbai
