Nepali actresses and others gathered at Maitighar Mandala on the evening of February 6 to remember late Neha Pun, the Magar film actress raped and killed in Pokhara. At the time when the murderer is yet to be identified the actresses and model in Kathmandu have gathered to pay homage to the deceased soul. The remembrance event called by actresses Richa Sharma was supported by the actresses and models.
In the event, actresses Richa Sharma, Priyanka Karki, Keki Adhikari, Nisha Adhikari, Anna Sharma, Jharana Thapa, Nandita KC, Malvika Subba, Reema Bishowkarma, Diya Maskey, Deepa Shree Niraula etc. Miss Nepal Evana Manandhar was also present at Maitighar.
Although a large number of actresses and models were present in the event, no male celebrities were seen. That sure gives a wrong impression that the male celebrities haven’t given importance to the issues the female celebrities are concerned of.
One of the Magar movies of Neha Pun, ‘Gaula’ is available in this link:
