Rekha Thapa is promoting her latest movie ‘Hifajat’ these days. The movie is going to be released all over Nepal on this Friday (April 9, 2010). Her previous movies ‘Himmat‘ and ‘Kismat‘ did very good business and were hit movies and she is expecting ‘Hifajat’ to follow suit.
The movie ‘Hifazaat’ is produced by Chhabi Ojha, Rekha’s husband, and directed by Gyanendra Deuja. Although the movie features new lead actor Aayush Rijal and Aaryan Rekha Thapa is widely seen in the promo of the movie. In an interview with Nagariknews, Rekha told that she is senior to the actors and she has done more work in the movie so she is featured in the promo.
It seems the movie is banking on controversy as a promotion material. Rekha has admitted in her interview that new ‘stunt’ is necessary promotion material these days. The Rs. 80 lakh budget movie made news when it was found the the promotion poster was a copy of a Hollywood movie poster, ‘Resident Evil: Extinction’.
In another controversy, the dress Rekha Thapa wore in a song was against the sentiment of Hindu religion.
