The producer of upcoming Dashain movie ‘Rato Tika Nidharma’, Ashok Sharma, had approached Jassita Gurung for the role. The actress of ‘Lily Bily’ and ‘Love Station’ demanded Rs. 10 lakh for the role. While bargaining for the price, the team has signed in Samragyee RL Shah for the role. In a report, Samragyee was paid higher amount, Rs. 16 lakh for the role.
One of the most popular actress in the Nepali film industry, Samragyee is also one of the busiest actress currently. Samragyee was shooting Nawal Nepal’s ‘Maruni’. In the mean-time she has also signed in ‘Subha Biwaha’ of Hemraj BC. In the movie, Samragyee will romance with Pradeep Khadka. The shooting of the movie however has delayed a while. Right after the completion of ‘Maruni’ Samragyee will start the shooting of ‘Rato Tika Nidharma’.
The producer Sharma is introducing his son, Ankit Sharma in the leading role in the movie. This is not the first time Samragyee was considered for Ashok Sharma’s movie. In the last year’s release film ‘Jaya Bhole’, the comeback film of Ashok Sharma as a director, Samragyee was offered the role that later was played by Swastima Khadka. At that time, Samragyee had rejected the role. In media reports, Samragyee had rejected because it was a role of a village girl. Samragyee later disputed the media report and told that she doesn’t have such bias toward village girls. The director Sharma also told that the media report was incorrect.
Now, Samragyee has signed in the new movie to be directed by Ashok Sharma. Last year’s movie ‘Jaya Bhole’ wasn’t that successful as a film although Sharma claimed that the film had recovered it investment in the first week of its release.
In the upcoming project with Ankit Sharma and Samragyee other well known actors like Nita Dhungana, Rabindra Jha, Buddhi Tamang, Jayananda Lama, Rajarama Poudel and Shivahari Poudel will be featured in main roles. The name of the movie ‘Rato Tika Nidharma’ is borrowed from a song Ashok Sharma had directed more than a decade ago, ‘Allare’. The new movie will also have the remake of the original song.
The shooting of the movie is expected to start in the last week of Baisakh. It is scheduled to release in the Dashain holiday.
