Popularly known as Pugu , Dixita Karki is a new sensation in Nepal. She is a singer and a YouTuber. She is quite popular because of her family background and also because of her father. The father, Chetan Raj Karki, is a musician himself. It’s because of her father, Dixita has gained such a popularity in a young age.
Dixita’s father and her mother divorced when she was 4-years-old. After the divorce, Dixita started to live with her father and grandmother.
Chetan Raj later married Anu Karki. Dixita lives with her father Chetan Raj Karki and Anu Karki. Dixita’s real mother, a woman of Tibedian origin, Nima, lives in Pokhara and is running her own business there. In addition to music Dixita’s father also owns a restaurant.
Last time it was Christianity. She distributed Santa Clause things during Christmas to poor kids and was accused of promoting Christianity to poor unsuspecting kids. She did that for the kid’s fun and entertainment.
Now, she is being the target of Muslim people in Nepal. There was a fashion show featuring hijab and Shrinkhala along with actress Priyanka Karki and banker Raveena Desraj participated in the fashion show. But, their participation was controversial.
This is what people think – “Now Promoting hijab. Next promote burqa. Next promote sharia law in Nepal. And next stone a woman to death in Tudikhel for marrying someone she chooses.”
One commenter says: “I am extremly disappionted @shrinkhala_ ..Hijab is a symbol of women oppression ..I am not against the people who wears it because its their choice but please do not encourage it ..it should not be something you celebrate.” Continue reading
Two actresses have totally different approach on the troll that has been going on in the internet.
A usually sober actress, Barsha Raut, appeared in a revealing cloth in the premier of her film ‘Jatrai Jatra’ in Sydney, Australia. That is in contrast of the perception that Barsha doesn’t prefer showing off her body. When the trolls start to surface, Barsha’s husband responded by telling that he was supportive of Barsha (video temporarily removed).
Then came Priyanka Karki. The actress often being trolled herself also supported Barsha and wasn’t happy for those taking the issue negatively. Priyanka Karki in her Instagram post wrote: For all the peopel sying the dress is too ‘low cut’ she should have worn something sober … the dress is too ‘revealing’, you shouldn’t have done that for publicity …
NO! You (the ones saying the most demeaning and disrespectful stufd about a woman. YES YOU!) Actually you’re too ‘judgmental’ and you need to STOP THAT SHIT! NOW!” Continue reading
Actress Suhana Thapa is currently in Europe for the premier of her debut movie ‘A Mero Hajur 3’. The movie is a family movie featuring the daughter, Suhana, in leading role while the director is the mother, actress Jharana Thapa. The producer of the movie is the father Sunil Kumar Thapa. The family is currently showing the movie in various countries including UK, Hong Kong, USA and Canada.
After, Priyanka was questioned on her Cannes 2019 performance, she has kept herself silent for a while. Keeping silent is not something Priyanka does often. After days of silence, Priyanka shared an interview video without any details on who the interviewer is and for what TV or online the interview as taken. The setting looks like a lobby with a couple in people in the background.
When Priyanka Karki left Nepal to participate in the 72nd Cannes Film Festival in France, she claimed that a new history was going to be made at the festival. She claimed to be the first ever actress to participate in the festival. But, it turned out, she was lying. It is quite disturbing that she had knowingly lied about the whole thing.
In the beginning Priyanka told:
Like some normal people, we believed her and were very happy on her representation of our country. Then things started to go out of sync. Priyanka started copying Bollywood celebrities style.
I thought, that was her love to Priyanka Chopra and being her die-hard fan, Karki was trying to be Chopra at the festival (now, I am not sure if that was a sign of inferiority complex.) Continue reading
The title is borrowed from a song: The singer complains his better half’s nagging about love as he is more worried about the country.
Actress Priyanka Karki is in Cannes to participate in the Red Carpet shows of some of the films. Her to-be-husband, Ayushman Desraj Joshi is in Thailand. Ayushman has expressed his love for the country in trio-posts in his Instagram. I found them interesting and am sharing them here.
Today is the big day for the Nepali film and entertainment industry. For the first time, Nepali actress, Priyanka Karki is making the Red Carpet debut at the Cannes Film Festival, France.
On May 21, 2019 Priyanka wrote, “Making my first red carpet appearance tonight and lord knows how excited I am. This is huge for all of us and I promise to make you guys proud!” She also shared a pass showing “Gisaengghung de Bong Joon-ho”.
Gisaengchung is a South Korean drama film directed by Bong Joon-ho.
For the first time in the history of Nepali film industry, actress Priyanka Karki has become the first representative to go to the festival.
About the festival:
The Cannes Festival was called the International Film Festival (Festival international du film) until 2002. Now, Cannes Film Festival, is an annual film festival held in Cannes, France, which previews new films of all genres, including documentaries from all around the world.
The festival was founded in 1946, the invitation-only festival is held annually (usually in May) at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès. It is one of the “Big Three” alongside the Venice Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival.
The 2019 Cannes Film Festival is taking place between 14 and 25 May 2019. Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu has been named the jury president of this year’s festival.
This is a rare incident – journalist Rabi Lamichhane and Nekita Poudel got married in a private ceremony held at Mystique Mountain Resort in Nagarkot. The place is also near the birth place of Lamichhane. It is interesting that, Rabi had gone and lived in the place to celebrate his honeymoon with his wife Nekita in Februaty at the same resort.
When they went there, it was snowing a lot. Rabi had shared a live video of the place and he had shared photos of the couple at the place at that time. That was the time after Rabi and Nekita had got married in court. So, they were officially married at that time. The choice of the place for marriage at the same location they went for honeymoon is interesting. Continue reading
Actress Priyanka Karki and Ayushman Desraj Joshi got engaged last year. There were two separate ceremonies to celebrate their engagement. At that time, Priyanka had told that they were going to get married “next year”. Now, it is the “next year.”
When journalists asked Priyanka Karki about her marriage, she told, “Now wedding is not certain.”
Watch the following video to watch what she told:
Yes, she has clearly told that the wedding plan is not going on as they had planned before. After I saw the interview, I did a little bit of searching in their profiles. My calculated assumption is:
It is Priyanka who is not happy. She has topped sharing photos of Ayushman in her Instagram profile for more than a month. The last photo of Priyanka with Ayushman was posted on March 4. In the meantime, Priyanka had wished Ayushman’s mother Raveena Desraj on her birthday. She has shared photo of Raveena with Priyanka. Ayushman is not with them in the photo: Continue reading

Although 4 different people of the Nepali film industry got married today on May 7, 2019 it was only two marriages. Two directors married today. One director married the actress of one of his films, ‘Aishwarya’ and another director married the producer of her directorial debut film ‘Intu Mintu Londonma’.
It was not a surprise event because it was a well known fact that they were seeing each other for some time. The relationship between the choreographer Renasha Bantawa Rai and the producer Prajwal SJB Rai had been a decade old. They had been working together in movies for a long time. Renasha is a well known choreographer and she is doing second movie as a director too. The success of Intu Mintu Londonma has helped Nepali film industry find another hit director.
The relationship between Diwakar Bhattarai and his actress in ‘Aishwarya’, Deepika Prasain flourished during the shooting of the movie. They went to court and got married even before the film was complete. They got engaged in an official ceremony a while ago. Diwakar Bhattarai is one of the most successful directors of the film industry. After the success of ‘Jatra’, ‘Aishwarya’ and ‘Captain’ he is one of the most sought after directors of the Nepali film industry. Deepika is also considered an actress with potential.
As all the four are known to be successful person in their field, it seems, these two couple will rule the film industry in the coming days. The only other successful couple in the film industry that I can recall is Swastima Khadka and Nischal Basnet.
Congratulation to both couple and wish them a long and fun filled relationship.
Here is the video report. No video clips of the actual marriage are available yet. So, I have compiled the photos available so far to create the video report.
