In the history of Nepali movies, this will be the first movie based on the life of a martyr. The movie titled ‘Bhimdutt’ is being produced and directed by Himgyap Tasi Lama. The movie will also feature songs based on the quotations of Bhimdutta and will showcase the attractions of Western Nepal.

While in the USA, actress Rekha Thapa had announced, in a public program, that Himgyap would direct her movie ‘Kali’. But, after she returned to Nepal she forgot her promise and signed Shabir Shrestha to direct the movie. It seems the shooting of the two movies would have clashed if Rekha had signed Himgyap. Rekha is currently shooting ‘Kali’ in Birgunj.
