The 33-years-old director, Nilu Doma Sherpa, died on July 1, 2017 (read the news). The death of Nilu is termed suspicious because of unexplained events leading to her death. Here are some of the facts that have made the death suspicious:
- Nilu was in party mood and had participated in the marriage of Nisha Adhikari on Friday. She was also present in the Mehendi ceremony held on Wednesday. She was in jolly mood in that event. She had also shared photo of the marriage and the Mehandi ceremony.
- In the news, it was reported that she complained at 2:00 AM in the night. But, she was taken to the hospital after more than six hours. She was already dead when she reached hospital. Questions are raised why the delay was caused.
- In the news, there are two conflicting health conditions. She was reportedly having depression issues for some time. In addition to that, she was also told to have liver issues. The cause of death however is unrelated – she is told to have died of heart attack. To a layman like me – the cause of death and the health issues are unrelated. (May be some medical doctor might enlighten me.)
Nilu was a lesbian
Nilu was the first and the only film maker who had openly openly admitted that she was a lesbian. In a documentary she made she has told, “I am Nilu and I am a lesbian, homosexual, or gay, however you want to put it.” Watch the following video report for the details:
It is a very sad day for the Nepali film industry. A young and talented director has died of heart attack in her home on July 1, 2017. According to reports, Nilu complained about pain at around 2:00 AM. When she was rushed to the hospital at 8 AM in the morning she was already dead.
Video report about Nilu’s death:
Who was Nilu Doma Sherpa?
Born in 1985, Nilu Doma Sherpa, debuted as a film director in the 2015 release movie, ‘How Funny’. The movie produced by ex-Miss Nepal, Malvika Subba, featured well known actors like Dayahang Rai, Priyanka Karki, and Keki Adhikari. The movie also featured journalist Rishi Dhamala in a guest role. Although the movie was not successful commercially, one of the songs of the movie had been very popular.
Actress Nisha Adhikari and crickter Sharad Vesawakar have got married in a 5 star hotel in Kathmandu. In the marriage ceremony, no journalists were invited. The photos I am sharing is obtained from the participants of the marriage ceremony.
The bride Nisha Adhikari was groomed in traditional Nepali saree. The groom Sharad Vesawakar also wore Nepali traditional dress made on Dhaka fabric.
Nisha and Sharad relationship
It has been 8 years since Sharad and Nisha had known each other. They were friends in the start. Later they started having a relationship closer than friendship. It has been 5 years since Nisha and Sharad considered each other partners.
Yes, age is just a number what matters is the maturity in the person. But, we still forget the truth and measure a person by the age. It is a usual practice of traditional marriages that the bride is younger than the groom. Nobody questions when a guy twice the age of the girl get married (for example the marriage between Rajesh Hamal and Madhu Bhattarai). But, when the girl is older, questions are raised.
When Priyanka Karki and Ayushman Desraj Joshi started their affair, the headline was “Priyanka Karki having affair with a guy 5 years younger than herself.” Five years is not a big deal.
Now, when Nisha Adhikari is getting married to Sharad Vasawakar,
Actress Nisha Adhikari’s marriage with the national player of Team Nepal, Sharad Veshwakar on June 30, 2017. The invitation card of the marriage has already arrived to the close friends and families of the two. The invitation card has an interesting design featuring cricket bat, stump and cricket ball.
Nisha has recently debuted as a film producer by producing ‘Jhyanakuti’. The movie is awaiting release on Bhadra 8. The word Jhayankuti is used to represent marriage. Nisha is performing her own Jhayanakuti before releasing her movie.
Nisha and Sharad relationship
Both Nisha and Sharad are well known personalities in their fields. Nisha is a well known and talented actress. She is trained in the USA and is a seasoned actress. Although Nisha is yet to make an impression in the box office – she is known for controversies and scaling of Mt. Everest.
In an interview, Ayushman’s mother Rabina Desraj said, “I will make Priyanka my daughter-in-law.”
Although parental approval for marriage is a thing of past, it seems the newest love-birds are lucky enough to get the parental endorsement for the marriage. It was Priyanka’s mother Raksha Malhotra’s birthday on June 19, her boyfriend Ayushman Desraj and his mother Rabina Desraj were special guests. After the celebration, they also talked to the media about Priyanka’s relationship with Ayushman.
Watch the interview video:
A day before the interview, Ayushman and Priyanka had kissed in NFDC Award program after winning awards. Priyanka Karki was awarded the best actress award for her role in ‘Chhakka Panja’. Ayushma Desraj was also awarded the best newcomer actor for his role in ‘Chapali Height 2’.
Last week, during the NFDC National film award program the producer and the director of ‘Chhakka Panja’, Deepak Raj Giri and Deepa Shree Niraula left the venue mid-way. When the movie won two Best Movie award, they were not available to receive it. That created a controversy for which Deepak and Deepa wrote Facebook statuses too. Deepa ‘personally’ thanked the organizers and Deepak told that there is no requirements that he needs to stay till the end of the program.
There were report that Deepak told, “We are not here to clap for others,” before he left the venue. Comedy actors Jitu Nepal and Kedar Ghimire had also left with Deepak and Deepa. So, when Kedar Ghimire won the Best Comedy Actor award, he wasn’t there to receive it.
Deepa in an interview with an online channel told that the accusation that they ran away from the program is false. She told that they didn’t have any complaints against the award organizers.
She told that Deepak and Deepa had work to do, similarly Jitu and Kedar had a meeting. The explanation however doesn’t make sense at all. But, in her later statements it is clear that she was lying.
Deepa says, “The timing wasn’t right – the award was awarded right after we got out of the venue.”
The actress of upcoming movie featuring Anmol KC in leading role, ‘Kri’ is a beautiful and hot actress. She knows how to tease her followers in Facebook and Instagram. The actress with decent looks and a hot body, Aditi Budhathoki is struggling in Mumbai. Although she has landed in a number of modelling assignments, she is yet to get a role in movies there.
I had also prepared a video report about the actress. In the video, I had listed 10 things about the actress:
Every international beauty contests have a swimsuit round and the swimsuit poses of beauty contest winners and models are not rare poses. But, after Miss World scraped the swimsuit round, the swimsuit poses of Miss Nepal winners have become rare. I haven’t found any swimsuit photos of any Miss Nepal after 2013. In a latest photo shared by Asmi Shrestha from Thailand, she is wearing a swim suit. But, the photo is not clear and the photo only shows her back. Yes, it is not a proper swimsuit photo but, that is the only one she has shared so far.
In another photo Asmi is seen wearing a jeans shorts with black top and holding a beer on a beach.
According to the latest Teej song of Komal Oli, she has no interest to get married. But, the lyrics of the song is not written by herself but another singer and musician, Pashupati Sharma. Songs are songs – they don’t relate to one’s life. But, in the case of Komal Oli, it has turned out to be true.
Last year, Komal Oli sang – “This is the last time I will be searching for a husband.” In the same song, the lyricist Pashupati Sharma suggested her to join politics and be a politician. It seems, she has followed his advice and joined Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP). It was not only joining the party, she resigned from the Radio Nepal job to be a full time politician. The party also responded by electing Oli the Central Committee Member of the party. Now, after being a politician, the song says – “I will live and die for my country. I have no interest in getting married.
The ‘Chhakka Panja’ team attended NFDC Film award with high hopes. That was because, it was nominated in 15 categories – that was the most number of categories any movies were nominated in the award.

UPDATE – video report
What Happened at NFDC?
All the titles that ‘Chhakka Panja’ won – best movie, best actress, best director etc. were announced towards the end. In the star, all the awards were given to other films. Most of the awards ‘Chhakka Panja’ was nominated in went to ‘Purano Dunga’ – the movie that wasn’t as successful as ‘Chhakka Panja’. I can guess how torturous it would have been to Deepak and Deepa.
Who won in the categories ‘Chhakka Panja’ was nominated in? :

It’s not a big deal – kissing two lovers. But, the kissing of Priyanka Karki and Ayushman Desraj Joshi is a big deal because:
- Neither Priyanka nor Ayushman had clearly told they were in relationship before.
- Ayushman made the big announcement at the stage by terming Priyanka his “girlfriend” and her mother his “girlfriend’s mom” in the stage. When you watch the attached video you could hear a lady telling, “I was waiting for this,” at around 01:43.
- It is a clear indication that Priyanka is planning to take it as a long-term-relationship. As Priyanka Karki had previously divorced, my guess is that she must have done a better evaluation of the relationship before making it public.
The well known actress of the Nepali film industry, Jharana Thapa, has also obtained the Green Card of the USA. Jharana has become the third well known artist who had processed the Green Card from Nepal and left after obtaining the Green Card. Previously, actor Dilip Rayamajhi and actress Arunima Lamsal had left Nepal after obtaining the green card.
Although Jharana Thapa and her family is yet to confirm the report, according to the report published in the online version of Sourya Daily, Jharana’s husband has left Nepal to join his family in the USA. On the status update posted by Sunil Kumar Thapa, he has told that it is only a ‘vacation’ to meet “his princess”.
When Jharana went on a ‘vacation’ in November of 2016 – I wrote it was an “odd time” for a vacation because of the rush of the release of the debut of Jharana as a director. Now, it is clear – that was more than a vacation.
Although the comeback movie of Biraj Bhatta – ‘Jaya Parshuram’ was not successful, Biraj is making another attempt to win the heart of Nepali viewers. When Biraj left the Nepali film industry and became the superstar of Bhojpuri film industry, he was in the top position here. But, after a long absence in the industry, it is not going to be easy for Bhatt to reclaim his previous status.
There is however a possibility of Biraj Bhatta to become popular again because, another action star of his time, Nikhil Upreti, has reclaimed his stardom in the film industry recently. He has given some hit movies and is one of the busiest actors in the Nepali film industry. Biraj Bhatta also has the same potential.
Video report about ‘Harke Raja’:
Although Biraj Bhatta has told that the shooting schedule is finalized, the official announcement is pending yet. The script writing is going on and other actors are yet to be finalized. Biraj told that Deepak Ghimire and Sandip Sapkota are finalized. The shooting of the movie is scheduled to start on Shrawan 29. Continue reading
It is the birthday of Namrata Shrestha – the top actress of Nepali film industry. Last year, Namrata’s movie ‘Classic’ won her all the Best Actress awards. This year, Namrata’s movie ‘Parva’ was released. Although the movie wasn’t as successful as ‘Classic’ or ‘November Rain’, the movie’s result was as expected by the producers. The thriller movie wasn’t expected to do an exceptional business.
Namrata is one of the Top 10 actresses on the views of the film directors:
