Two Barsha – Barsha Siwakoti and Barsha Raut left ‘Nai Nabhannu La 5’ because of the roles they were offered in the movie. The reasons of the rejection of the movie by the two actresses is said to be because of their roles relative to Swastima Khadka. Swastima is featured in the leading role and the roles of the two actresses were that of characters that were older than Swastima.
Why did Barsha Raut left ‘Nai Nabhannu La 5’?
Barsha being fat, was offered the role of an elder sister of Swastima Khadka. But, as they are of similar age, Barsha didn’t want to be tagged as an older woman when compared to Swastima. That was the reason Barsha said she rejected the role. Watch the following video report:
