Nepali Film – Naike
Starring – Aryan Sigdel, Surabina Karki, Sarika KC, Rem BK etc.
Director – Netra Gurung
The movie released in 2014 (read the release news) wasn’t successful movie. The movie was released with Sambhu Pradhan’s comeback film ‘Ranga Baijani’. But, neither of the movies were liked by the viewers. The movie features Aryan Sigdel in an action role. With Aryan Sigdel and Surabina Karki, the movie also features Rem BK, Bodhraj Regmi, Sarika KC etc. I wrote about the start of the movie in Pokhara (read the news here) and also talked about Aryan being featured as a gangster (read the news). In addition to action it also features romance and music. Aryan is also featured as a lover-boy image in addition to being featured in a tough action role.
The movie made under Black Shadow Production is directed by Netra Gurung, a film director from Pokhara. Most of the movie was also shot in various locations in and around Pokhara. “Naike” is a Nepali word for a leader. Although it is a Nepali word, the name in various posters were spelled in different English letters. Some posters named the film as ‘Naike’ and others ‘Naaike’ (attached poster is a proof). The confusion in the name is a better indication how the editing of the film might have been done. No wonder, people didn’t like the film.
The full movie is now available:

Aryan Sigdel’s beautiful wife Sapana Bhandari has turned 28 years old. On every birthday she makes a resolution for the year. Last year, in her 27th birthday I made a video report about Sapana and her relationship with Aryan Sigdel.
I had prepared a video about Sapana last year, on her 26th birthday. The question I raised last year is still the same. This year, she has replied that they are planning for a baby. Which might be an indication that Sapana is not going to be an actress. In addition to that, Sapana has also told an online magazine that she might consider going for PhD. But, she hasn’t made a concrete plan for further studies yet.
A MBA graduate, Sapana is also planning to start something new (probably a business). The details of the plan is yet to be unveiled. Bhandari told that the details will be made public in near future.
Watch last year’s video:
The hottest and the most sellable actress of the Nepali film industry, Samragyee RL Shah, is going to be featured with two of the hottest sensations, Pradeep Khadka and Aryan Sigdel in her upcoming movie. After the success of her debut movie with Anmol KC, Samragyee’s second movie ‘A Mero Hajur 2’ was also a hit. She also became the highest paid actress overnight. While a new movie ‘Timi Sanga’ is yet to release and the shooting of ‘Intu Mintu Londonma’ had halted because of the visa issue, she has signed up some more new movies.
Samragyee in Aryan Sigdel’s Kayara
In one of the upcoming movie of Samragyee, she is going to be featured opposite to Aryan Sigdel. During the announcement of his movie produced in association with Subas Giri, Aryan had announced that he won’t be working in movie out of his own production house. He had set a condition that his home production banner should be associated with all the movies he worked. But, after huge success of ‘Classic’, Aryan didn’t have any films in a year. After ‘Parva’ he was planning to work in a movie named ‘Marina’. But, when the movie delayed, he signed up Rekha Thapa’s ‘Rudrapriya’. The movie was released recently but, it failed to impress the viewers.
We call our actors ‘heros’ because of the deeds they do in their movies. They are role models and girls dream to marry them. But, many of the top actors in the Nepali film industry are already married. Most of the wives are also the secret of their husband’s success. They might not be as popular as their husband, but they are equally important in the lives of our idols/superstars. Let me introduce you to the wives of Top 10 Nepali Actors:
Before diving into the details, watch a video I prepared a while ago:
Dayahang Rai and Benuka Rai
One of the most popular actor in the Nepali film industry is Dayahang Rai. Known for his down-to-earth nature and natural acting talent, Dayahang is considered unconventional hero in the film industry. Dayanag is married to Benuka Rai, a singer by profession. Benuka and Dayahang met during a recording of one of her songs and they started seeing each others. Benuka and Dayahang have a son. While Benuka has found a celebrity husband, he has also found a beautiful and smart wife.

Nepali actresses come very cheap when compared to their male counterparts. The actress Rekha Thapa, who claims to be equivalent to a male actress, and always works in female-centric movies, is paid less than most of the male actors. Rekha’s rate is Rs. 5 lakh. Actor Anmol KC is paid about five times that amount. Another actor Pradeep Khadka is also paid more than four times that amount. In Rekha’s last movie, she also paid her co-star, Aryan Sigdel, 3 times the amount she expects others to pay her.
Is it a female dominance or a discrimination? Are the actresses not demanding their worth?
First let’s see who is paid what amount watch the video report:
List of the pay rate of Nepali actors:
- Anmol KC – 25 lakh for ‘Kri’ (Anmol’s father, Bhuwan KC is co-producer of the movie)
- Pradeep Khadka – 23 Lakh for ‘Lilibili’
- Aryan Sigdel – 15 Lakh for ‘Rudrapriya’
- Dayahang Rai – 15 Lakh for ‘Mr. Jholey’
- Saugat Malla – 9 Lakh for ‘Mero Paisa Khoi’
- Paul Shah – 8 Lakh for ‘Shatru Gate’
- Nikhil Upreti – 6 Lakh for ‘Sanrakshan’
The well known actors Bhuwan KC and Rajesh Hamal both reportedly demand Rs. 6 Lakh for a movie.
After 8 years, actress Rekha Thapa and Aryan Sigdel have teamed up to be featured together in upcoming movie ‘Rudra Priya’. The movie director by Sudeep Bhupal Singh is produced by Ramesh MK Poudel as an executive producer. Rekha Thapa’s mother Saraswoti Thapa is named the producer of the movie.
Like all her previous movies, the upcoming movie is also told to be female-oriented movie. It features love, romance, and action. Before the trailer, a song of the movie ‘Chirbir Chirbir Chachari …’ was released. The song featuring the voice of the muisc of Rajan Ishan was liked by the viewers.
The first look poster of upcoming Rekha Thapa movie, ‘Rudrapriya’ was released recently. In all the posters of the movie, half portion of actress Rekha Thapa is hidden by the hem of her Saree.
The poster of the movie made under Rekha Films banner is different from the posters of previous Rekha Films banner movies. The colour and the presentation style is quite different. There is a possibility that the different looks is becasue of the director, Sudip Bhupal Singh and his concept.
In one of the posters, Rekha Thapa is holding the hand of Aryan Sigdel. Half portion of Rekha’s face is hidden. In another poster Rekha and Aryan are facing different directions. Rekha’s has clinched fist and a determined look. Only half portion of Rekha’s face is visible in this poster too.
