The political environment has adversely affected the Nepali movie industry. As the election result are being released, no Nepali movie is going to be released this week in theater.
Nepali film artists are also in a state of shock when the biggest party before election is seemingly the distinct third after Nepali Congress and CPN (UML), according the initial election result. Shocked Maoist have cried foul and have asked the counting to stop.
Prior to the election a number of film artists had joined political parties including Maoist, UML and Congress. Well known producer and Gopi Krishna theater owner Uddav Poudel is likely to loose in Kathmandu -4. Another producer, Ramesh Jung Rayamajhi (NC candidate) has lost from Morang-8 to UML candidate. Ramesh Jung has produced ‘Nai Na Bhannu La’, ‘Malai Man Paryo’ and upcoming ‘Santrash’.
