Actress Nisha Adhikari’s debut movie as a produce, ‘Jhayanakuti’ was the solo release on November 17, 2017. The movie team had done a press show a day before the release. The viewers had given positive response to the quality of the movie.
The movie was previously scheduled to release on August 24. But, when the producer, Nisha decided to get married all of a sudden in June, the release date was delayed by three months.

The movie directed by Simosh Sunuwar is made on the story of Pradeep Bhardwoj. The movie features Saugat Malla with Benisha Hamal in leading roles. Other artists in the movie include Sumi Moktan, Astal Gurung etc.
The film produced by actress Nisha Adhikari has a suspense – does it have Nisha Adhikari in a role or not. That is because the lead actress of the movie is Benisha Hamala and she is featured opposite to Saugat Malla. Initially it was believed that Nisha will be in the movie by default because she is the producer of the movie. But, when Nisha wasn’t featured in the trailer released recently, people have started wondering if Nisha is in the film or not.
The comedy movie features a couple played by Benisha Hamala and Saugat Malla. The movie directed by Simosh Sunuwar was being shot in Chitwan when Nisha Adhikari announced her marriage. Nisha who is trained in acting in the USA has a long-term plan of directing movies. In the production debut movie she had also worked as the choreographer. The director Simosh has also jointly produced the movie. Simosh had directed movies like ‘Mission Paisa’ and ‘First Love’.
The marriage of Nisha with Sharad Veswakar in June is also believed to be the reason behind the delay in the release of the movie.
Like previous years, celebrities have shared their photos and videos in social network. I had posted a collection of photos shared early by some celebrities. This is a latest update with more photos.

Halloween is a festival of remembering the dead people in the family. It is celebrated by the people of Christian faith. But, because of the fun aspects of the festival, people of other religion also celebrate it in Western countries. Costumes, candies and Trick-or-Treating is more like the combination of our Deusi – Bhailo in Tihar and Gaijatra festival.
Nepali actresses Keki Adhikari, Reema Bishowkarma, Benisha Hamal and actor Anup Bikram Shahi shared photos of Halloween in Facebook.
Nepali movie ‘Kalo Pothi’ (The Black Hen) was premiered in a Venice Film Festival in Italy on September 5, 2015. To be premiered in the festival, considered to be one of the oldest film festivals in the world, is an honor to the Nepali film. This year’s Venice Film Festival is the 72nd edition of the festival.
The movie ‘Kalo Pothi’, a story of two kids during the hardship of Maoist civil war in Nepal, is 1 hour and 30 minutes long. The movie however doesn’t support any political views. The movie mostly shot in Mugu featues Khadka Raj Nepali, Benisha Hamal and Sukra Raj Rokaya. The director, Min Bahadur Bham, says that he has no immediate plans to release the movie in Nepal. The movie was produced in collaboration of the producers from Germany, Switzerland and France. The cinematographer Aziz Zhambakiyev had previously won an award on cinematography in Berlin Film Festival.
The mud-filled festival of farmers, celebrated on Asar 15, is now largely show off rather than an actual festival. In the past, when most of the people in Nepal were farmers, it was the festival to start the cropping season. The marriage between work and fun is filled with celebration. These days, Asar 15 has been the celebration for photo-op and tourism. Nepali actresses have taken this opportunity to shot music videos and modeling photos in paddy field.
Here are the collection of some of the photos of various Nepali actresses getting dirty to take photos.
Actress Binita Baral is the only actress who is actively involved in farming. After she started farming, she hasn’t appeared in any movies. Binita had actually worked in her 10-ropani plot. Binita is finalizing her debut novel ‘Juino’ and her upcoming movie ‘Umang’ is told to be in post-production. More photos of Binita in nepaliactress.com.
The temporary residences constructed by the help of Nepali film artists at Rampur Danda of Kabhrepalanchowk are handed over to the locals. The earthquake had destroyed about 40 houses in the area. On May 20 a group of Nepali film artists handed over the houses, named after popular Nepali movies, to the owners.
The team led by Suresh Darpan Pokharel in association of actress Keki Adhikari had constructed all 40 temporary residences in the last four days. The volunteer artists include Benisha Hamal, Surekshya Pant, Melina Manandhar, Barsha Siwakoti, Nandita KC, Dilip Rayamajhi, Jiwan Luitel, Anmol KC, Yashraj, Swotantra Pratap Shah and musician Basanta Sapkota had supported by volunteering and providing the financial resources to help in the construction of the buildings.
All the 40 houses are named after Nepali films including the first Nepali movie ‘Aama’ (watch ‘Aama’ here) to the relatively new movie ‘Sano Sansar’ (watch ‘Sano Sansar’ here). The naming of the house didn’t have any relationship to the producers of the movies.
With the help of earthquake victims, a small team of Nepali artists have constructed a number of temporary cylindrical residences. The artist team had constructed 5 residences on the first day and 15 residences on the second day. The artists have formed a team of We For All and the residences are being constructed under Project Roof.
So far, plastic tents and plastic sheets were being distributed to the earthquake victims for temporary residence. As monsoon approaches, such residences wont be sufficient to withstand the rain. The voluenter artists of the second day were Nandita KC, Keki Adhikari, Suresh Darpan Pokharel, Benisha Hamal and dress designer April Shrestha.
