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.

- 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.
