The death of actor Shree Krishna Shrestha was a very unexpected and hurtful death in the Nepali film industry. Shree Krishna died within a month of his marriage to actress Sweta Khadka.

Both of his home production movies ‘Kaha Bhetiyela’ (watch ‘Kaha Bhetiyela’ here) and ‘Kohinoor’ were super hit movies.
