UPDATE: In an online report, Shyam Bhattarai has admitted that Rekha has wrongfully sent him home. He also told that Rekha had been planning it since the beginning and he didn’t know it until the last minute.
*previous post continues:*
In a latest information xnepali has received, actress Rekha Thapa was planning to direct ‘Himmatwali’ herself from the beginning. Rekha’s plan was to use Shyam Bhattarai to shot the most difficult parts and let him go.
According to Rekha’s plan, the climax of the movie was shot first. Shyam worked the first two days and left after the completion of the most difficult part of the movie. In the climax, Rekha rode horse, camel and fights villains. The source says, when Rekha got comfortable working without Shyam she asked him to leave her alone. The issue is such that, they aren’t Facebook friends anymore.
The information from our source is confirmed by one of the comments by Jee Saurav in Shyam’s status. Saurav says, “I didn’t see you sick. I was with you all the time. What is wrong?”
In the following photo, Jee Saurav is seen with Shyam Bhattarai in ‘Himmatwali’ shooting spot – to confirm he was with him all the time:
These photos also confirms that the Shyam’s illness is a made-up story.
Rekha’s desire to direct the movie is not a big deal. After all, it is her home production and she has every right to do what ever she wants.
We think, Rekha planned the betrayal and a made-up illness story to create a controversy for the promotion of the movie. In the current movie, Rekha seem to be planning to create controversies and news coverages to promote the movie. So far, she has already managed a lot of such issues for the promotion of the movie. Here are some:
- She announced ‘Kamala’ first and then started the shooting of ‘Himmatwali’. The issue did make some news.
- Rekha teased on the new actor in the movie. Although the actor is known to be Sudarshan Gautam, Rekha is yet to say it officially. She has high hopes to make it a marketing issue.
- Rekha used camels in the movie, in order to do something different.
- Now, she has removed the director Shyam Bhattarai and took over the direction job.
- Rekha will use it as the debut direction
File photo: It seems, Rekha had also rehearsed the future plan.
