Anmol KC made news when he appeared with two bodyguards when he visited film-halls during the release of his movie ‘Dreams’. It is not clear if the extra security was necessary or was only a publicity stunt. One thing is for sure, other actors are also following Anmol KC for the sake of publicity.
Being covered by bodyguards in film halls makes sense. It is not easy for the artists to deal with the crowd. That was seen during the release of ‘A Mero Hajur 2’. The six bodyguards had hard time protecting the actors Salinman Baniya, Samragyee RL Shah and Salon Basnet.

The first look poster of upcoming movie ‘Fateko Jutta’ indicates that the movie is a suspense thriller. The movie dierected by Nikesh Khadka features Saugat Malla, Priyanka Karki, Kameshowr Chaurasiya and Buddhi Tamang in main roles. The dark comedy movie was initially scheduled to release on Bhadra 23 but, the release date was delayed to Kartik 17 (November 3, 2017).
Produced by the ‘Chapali Height’ franchise producer, Arjun Kumar, the movie is made under the banner Arjun Kumar Films in association with Highlights Nepal and Popcorn Pictures.
Fateko Jutta Poster
In the first look poster, a person is shown standing with his hand on the hip. There is no indication on who the person is because the upper portion of the photo is cropped. Wearing torn shoes and a dhoti, there are empty bottles lying around on the floor. There is a jute sack with something inside it. It looks like the person is closely guarding the jute bag.
Although the poster has been successful in creating a little bit suspense, the design however can’t be considered attractive. The level of suspense is also very mild as it doesn’t raise the curiosity level about either who the guy might be or, what might be in the jute bag. While looking at the poster, one doesn’t care much about the identity of the person of the the content in the bag because there is no addition information about them.
The shooting of the upcoming movie of Anmol KC, ‘Kri’ is still going on. The movie that got the media attention since its first announcement, has been in the headlines despite of the secrecy surrounding the movie. In the first look poster, Anmol is shown to be featured in action role, a sharp contrast to his lover-boy avatar in his previous movies. Anmol had built body and had kept his looks secret by staying away from the media since the announcement of the movie. I had prepared a video report with an exclusive preview of Anmol KC’s body:
After the release of first look, the curiosity towards the movie and the actor has risen among the Nepali movie lovers. As Anmol is surrounded by his bodyguards and he is not allowed to be photographed by the media, his looks and some of the closely guarded releases are the only photos available now. I have compiled a list of photos Anmol has shared so far:
