Nepali actress Samragyee RL Shah is currently in Australia for the screening of her second movie ‘A Mero Hajur 2’. The movie produced and directed by another well known actress, Jharana Thapa, was well received by the viewers at home. A sequel of a successful movie ‘A Mero Hajur’ features new artists although they are both produced by the same team.
The premier of the movie was held in Australia and the dress Samragyee wore at the event was very attractive and hot.
Samragyee’s first Australia tour
A 24-years old student of an University of Australia, is working as a call girl for the cost of living. Apart from working in cleaning service and massage centre, Sakuntala (name changed for privacy) also visits homes to provide sex-service to customers.
Sakuntala works at massage centres at Parramatta, in the New South Wales state and cleaning services located nearby. But, the majority of her income comes from the internet escort services. The customers pay her price in the internet and call her to their home. Sakuntala says, “I go to their place and serve them. It pays me well.”
According to Sakuntala, she charges $150 for an hour of service. The amount is prepaid to her bank account before she shows up. She says, she knwos at least 5-6 Nepali girls who do the same thing. Sakuntala says, “We are happy to earn living by selling sex.”
Actress Reecha Sharma has produced her second movie titled ‘Sunakesari’ despite the failure of her first one. Richa’s production debut ‘Aadha Love’ was a disaster. In her second movie, Richa has diverted her focus – first was love-themed movie and the second is a horror-themed movie.
The theme of her second movie is scary in itself because, no Nepali movie in that theme has ever succeeded in attracting Nepali viewers to theatre. At the time when all scary Nepali movies have failed, Reecha is believed to have taken a huge risk with the Arpan Thapa directed movie.
The movie ‘Sunkeshra’ is mostly shot in an ancient castle in Australia, built in 1888. Reecha says that the movie will excite and entertain Nepali viewers by providing a rare and exciting experience. The poster says it all :
Whether the movie becomes a success or not, it sure is a new experiment and will add a brick in the development of the Nepali film industry and offers a new taste for the Nepali film viewers.
It seems, the movie to be made on the popular novel by Subin Bhattarai, ‘Summer Love’ is delayed. The reason for the delay is said to be the lead actress. The actress to be featured as the character Saya in the novel hasn’t been found yet. The film to be produced by the producer of ‘Nai Nabhannu La’ franchise, Bikash Acharya, was said to be directed by his assistant, Muskan Dhakal.
Detailed video report:
The movie was initially announced in June of 2015. After almost a year later, ‘Dreams’ actress,Samragyee RL Shah was told to be featured in the leading actress’ role. Samragyee and the film team hadn’t however signed an agreement. Later, when ‘Dreams’ became a hit movie, Samragyee RL Shah reportedly hiked her price and the ‘Summer Love’ production team decided to search for another actress. In the mean time Samragyee RL Shah has signed actress Jharana Thapa‘s directoral debut movie ‘A Mero Hajur 2’ for a sum of Rs. 500 K.
Why go cheap ?
It seems, the production team is penny pinching while searching for an actress. It is not a good sign that the producers couldn’t find an actress not only in Nepal but also in Australia.
UPDATE: Rishi Dhamal’s Dashain in Canada and Ratan Subedi’s Dashain in Australia (at the end of this post).
