The actress of Sunil Rawal’s only flop film ‘Sayaad 2’, Sharon Shrestha has accused the producer of sexual harassment during shooting of the movie.
Some of Sharon’s accusations:
- Sunil Rawal was very touchy. He used to touch the actresses, touch their hands and tried to hug them.
- He forced them to drink wine in his birthday in Pokhara during the shooting of ‘Saayad 2’.
- Sunil held and carried two ‘Saayad 2’ actresses during the birthday celebration.
- Sunil used to whisper in ear and kiss her in the ear.
- Sunil had proposed her to be his girlfriend. In return, he promised to help her become the air hostess at Simrik Air.
But, after that, Sharon and Sunil Rawal reached in an undisclosed agreement and have agreed not to talk about the issue anymore. In the agreement, neither of the party have told anything about the things they had told in the past.
Does that mean, Sharon was true in all of her statement?
The first look poster of upcoming Rekha Thapa movie, ‘Rudrapriya’ was released recently. In all the posters of the movie, half portion of actress Rekha Thapa is hidden by the hem of her Saree.
The poster of the movie made under Rekha Films banner is different from the posters of previous Rekha Films banner movies. The colour and the presentation style is quite different. There is a possibility that the different looks is becasue of the director, Sudip Bhupal Singh and his concept.
In one of the posters, Rekha Thapa is holding the hand of Aryan Sigdel. Half portion of Rekha’s face is hidden. In another poster Rekha and Aryan are facing different directions. Rekha’s has clinched fist and a determined look. Only half portion of Rekha’s face is visible in this poster too.

This week, on July 7, 2017, two new movies are released in theatre – ‘Dhanapati’ and ‘Mandira’. While one of them is made by the makers of super hit movies in the past, another is not much known about.
The movie by the writer of ‘Pashupati Prasad’ and ‘Talakjung VS Tulke’, ‘Dhanapati’ also has a huge expectation from the viewers. Directed by Dipendra K Khanal, the movie is made on a political story. The protagonist is a guy who wanted to give a better education to his daughter. He started working for a political leader.
The ‘Prem Geet 2’ team is currently in cross-country promotion tour. The tour started from Kathmandu to Damauli, Pokhara, Nepalgunj, Birgunj, Bhairahawa and to the East Nepal. In the concert held in Nepalgunj, the actress of the movie Aslesha Thakuri showed off too much skin on the stage. Aslesha wore a loose skirt and danced on an elevated platform, showing off her body.
The wardrobe malfunction of the concert was staged because:
- Aslesha had specifically chosen the dress to show off. It was not an accidental exposure, she intentionally maneuvered in such a way that the skirt flew in the air. (Watch the attached video to see her in action).
- One of the crew members, shared a video with a wardrobe malfunction photo on it’s cover art (with a blur on her back, creating more curiosity to the viewers).
- The producer of the movie Santosh Sen had also shared the video on his Facebook wall.
- The team later interviewed the actress in which she was shown crying.

The trailer of ‘Prem Geet 2’ is trending number 1 in Nepal. But, the video has received more dislikes than the likes. At the time of this writing, there are more than 16,000 likes in the video. But, the dislike count is more than 17,000. I did a review of the trailer a while ago (Read the trailer review). I didn’t see anything to be disliked in the video.
The video has received 535k views at the time of this writing. According to the producer, Santosh Sen, somebody might be creating fake dislikes in the video. Because, most of the dislikes in the video has come from countries like Chili, Peru, and USA. He suspected somebody might have spent money to create the dislikes in the video. He told that he is investigating in the issue.
Because of the popularity of YouTube in Nepal and the effect of the songs in the business of movies, there are people who watch the videos just to increase the views count or create fake accounts to increase the like or dislikes in the videos.
The movie ‘Prem Geet 2’ is one of the two sequels of superhit movie ‘Prem Geet’. The movie repeats the lead actor Pradeep Khadka and also features the producer, Santosh Sen, as one of the actors. The movie introduces new actress Aslesha Thakuri in the film industry.
A program was held in Kathmandu to release the trailer of the movie. In the program the producer Santosh Sen, actors Pradeep Khadka and Aslesha Thakuri and the director Ram Sharan Pathaka answered the questions asked by the journalists.
