The third movie by actress Karishma Manandar as a producer was also not successful like her previous tires. Her second production, ‘Babu Saheb’ was such a failure that, she left the film industry to go and live in the USA. She lived there for more than half a decade and later returned back to Nepal. By that time, her time in the film industry was over. She couldn’t get back the charm and the industry didn’t embrace the actress. She later decided to become a politician. In the current movie, Karishma is not featured as an actress, she is purely a producer. Actress Shilpa Pokharel is featured as the leading actress. The film is directed by Samjhana Upreti Rauniyar.
