In an event held in Kathmandu, well known director Nischal Basnet has married a new actress in Nepali film industry, Swastima Khadka. In a private event held on February 17, 2016, among his friends and family, Nischal has married and taken Swastima home. In the evening, a reception party was held to celebrate the marriage. A video report on the wedding:
The wedding was not a surprise event, as Swastima and Nischal were engaged in December, and the marriage was being planned since then. The news of their engagement however was a surprise event for many. The age difference between the bride and the groom was talked a lot at that time. 34-years old Nischal is 14 years older than is 20-years old wife.
Who are Nischal and Swastima?
Nischal Basnet debuted as a director of the 2012 release super hit movie ‘Loot’. After the success of his debut movie, Nischal directed another successful movie ‘Talakjung VS Tulke’.
