Richa Ghimire, actress, is going tie her knots with Shankar Ghimire, film director, today. They had been busy for the last few days, preparing for the marriage.
Richa would have been happy enough by â€˜court marriageâ€™ but her family and Shankar insisted in doing it in a more traditional fashion. Richa had a mehendi ceremony in which her friends and family applied mehendi on her hands and feet. Applying mehendi is an Indian tradition and it has encroached Nepali society in recent days.
In the ceremony, actresses Ranjana Sharma and Sushma Karki danced non-stop for about two hours. Then Arunima Lamsal, Sanchita Luintel, Rejina Upreti, Una Upreti joined in the dance.
Shankar and Richa will get married this Friday and the marriage ceremony will finish with a reception at Hotel Hyatt on Sunday.
We wish a very happy married life of Richa Ghimire and Shankar Ghimire.
