Rekha Thapa made headlines when she danced with Maoist chairman Puspa Kamal Dahal (Prachanda) during a protest rally in Kathmandu. She also acting in a movie named Jaljala featured as a maoist combatant.
Now, in the occasion of Tihar, her nearness to the party was evident when she took tika from YCL in-charge Chandra Bahadur Thapa (Sagar).
Rekha however wanted people to believe that the relationship is at the personal level and has nothing to do with her political or professional relationship. This year, her real brother Nawaraj Thapa didn’t come to Kathmandu from Biratnagar. Previous years she used to offer tika to hair designer Lokesh Thapa but this year, he was also not available for tika. So she had made a new brother – Sagar for bhaitika.
