Nepali Movie – Aago
Starring – Bipana Thapa, Niruta Singh, Saranga Shrestha, Sushil Chhetri, Basundhara Bhusal, Sushil Pokharel, Sunil Thapa etc.
Director – Narayan Puri
A presentation of Kisan Pokharel for Rodi Films banner, Nepali movie ‘Aago’ was a controversial movie. The government wasn’t happy by the movie so, it had seized the photo-negative of movie. The movie was converted into digital format. ‘Aago’ became super hit movie of its time. To cash the popularity and success of the movie it’s sequel movie ‘Aago 2’ was also made and was released in January 2015. But, the sequel wasn’t that successful in winning the hearts of the viewers.
One of the most sad moment in the Nepali film industry was in 2002 when actress Shrisha Karki committed suicide over a photo published in a weekly tabloid – ‘Jana Aastha’. The whole film industry was shocked by the extreme action taken by the aspiring actress and everybody accused the journalist of causing the distress to the actress.
Case was filed against the chief editor of the newspaper – Kishor Shrestha and two writers mentioned in the news article. But, they all got cleared because the case wasn’t prepared well. None of the accused were punished for the action. The newspaper editor, Kishor Shrestha, later told that the photo of the actress was taken by a police officer and given to them. Everybody believed the police officer, Uddhav Bhandari, was the main culprit.
But, when I went back to the case and did a little research – the truth seem to be something else. It seems, Uddhav Bhandari was used by the journalist just to make a case. It seems, Bhandari doesn’t have anything to do with the case.
A summary of my conspiracy theory is :
Actress Shrisha Karki committed suicide in August of 2002 after a photo was published in a tabloid, ‘Jana Aastha’. The death of the 24-years old actress shocked the entire film industry. The film artists went to streets with demand to arrest and prosecute the journalist who published the photo in the newspaper. The editor of the weekly, Kishor Shrestha, went into hiding and everybody was looking for him. People vandalized the newspaper office. It was one of the very bad incident in the history of the Nepali film industry. But, nobody was arrested or prosecuted.
It has been 16 years of the incident – in 2018, the journalist, Kishor Shrestha is the acting chief of the official media watchdog of the Nepal Government, Press Council Nepal.
Video report of the incident:

According to the terms of the visa, he is not allowed to work and being paid for the work. The letter has quoted the Immigration By-Law that prohibits the bearer of the visa to work in a paid job. And, the bearer of the visa is not allowed to do jobs that are not permitted by the by-law.

Nepali Movie – Palash
Starring – Rekha Thapa, Ayub KC, Kameshowr Chaurasiya etc.
Director – Subash Koirala
This is the first movie featuring Rekha Thapa in a negative role. The movie was produced by Krisha Chaulagain. The producer had problem with Subash Koirala while shooting. When Koirala left the film, Krisha herself completed the film. The movie was released in March last year (read the release news). The movie rated A and suitable for viewers sixteen years old and older failed to impress the viewers.
For some reason the full movie is removed. Please watch the film preview in 12 minutes. The preview gives the whole story in a short video. Enjoy till the full film is made available.
This is an update to a previous post on the subject. I have also updated the video report for this post.
The original video was made on the suggestion of one of my Twitter friends. The suggestion was make video report on Nepali actresses who smoke and drink in real life. Actually I wasn’t really interested in doing the report in the beginning. It was their personal freedom and I wasn’t a person to judge them by their habits. Drinking is not a taboo anymore. And, smoking is a bad habit almost all of the smokers want to quit.
Unless a drunk person acts irresponsibly, drinking doesn’t usually interface with the other people. But, smoking can expose non-smokers passive smoking. Smokers can at times be a nuisance too. But, I wasn’t willing to discuss the issue until I remember Rajesh Hamal’s incident during the shooting of one of his films. Then I prepared a video report (attached at the end of the post). The following video is the update to the video.
Nepali Film – Naike
Starring – Aryan Sigdel, Surabina Karki, Sarika KC, Rem BK etc.
Director – Netra Gurung
The movie released in 2014 (read the release news) wasn’t successful movie. The movie was released with Sambhu Pradhan’s comeback film ‘Ranga Baijani’. But, neither of the movies were liked by the viewers. The movie features Aryan Sigdel in an action role. With Aryan Sigdel and Surabina Karki, the movie also features Rem BK, Bodhraj Regmi, Sarika KC etc. I wrote about the start of the movie in Pokhara (read the news here) and also talked about Aryan being featured as a gangster (read the news). In addition to action it also features romance and music. Aryan is also featured as a lover-boy image in addition to being featured in a tough action role.
The movie made under Black Shadow Production is directed by Netra Gurung, a film director from Pokhara. Most of the movie was also shot in various locations in and around Pokhara. “Naike” is a Nepali word for a leader. Although it is a Nepali word, the name in various posters were spelled in different English letters. Some posters named the film as ‘Naike’ and others ‘Naaike’ (attached poster is a proof). The confusion in the name is a better indication how the editing of the film might have been done. No wonder, people didn’t like the film.
The full movie is removed for some unknown reason. Watch the full movie in 13 minutes in the following video. Enjoy the short version until the full film is available.
The secret of hot curvy and attractive body of Aslesha Thakuri is a regular workout. Although she is a vegetarian, she eats enough protein to make up the body needs.
Aslesha Thakuri debuted as an actress in ‘Prem Geet 2’, the sequel of a superhit movie ‘Prem Geet’. In the movie she is featured opposite to Pradeep Khadka. Although the film was successful and Pradeep Khadka became the new sensation in the Nepali film industry, the success of the movie wasn’t helpful to the actress. The Aslesha and Pradeep couple wasn’t liked by the viewers.
After the first movie, there is no report of Aslesha signing another movie. But, by the way she is building up her body, there might be some unannounced project in which Aslesha might be coming.
In the following report, Aslesha is seen working out on her body to build the attractive body.

Singer, journalist and athlete Komal Oli has a special link to the palace. Apart from being a long-time Radio Nepal journalist, Komal Oli had received scholarship from the palace during her school days. She was invited to the palace during Dashain. King Birendra and Queen Aishwarya used to know her in person because of her talent and celebrity status.
There was a rumour going on at the time of monarchy. People used to talk about the relationship between Komal and then prince Dhirendra. Dhirendra had a reputation of a playboy. It was a common belief that any girl in Dhirendra’s radar was not safe. Komal was one of his favourite singers and she was also an athlete. Dhirendra was the chief of Nepal Sports Council. In an interview, Komal Oli had quoted Late Sarad Chandra Shah, one of the right hands of Dhirendra (and also main force behind the notorious ‘Bhumigat Giroha’) telling her about Dhirendra’s affection towards her. Here is a video report about the affair rumour:
