Watch the full movie in a single part :
I think, it was a huge blunder – a move probably bring down the high expectation of the viewers from the movie.
- The movie ‘Kri’ is releasing this week.
- Last week, Anmol KC and Aditi Budhathoki flew to Scotland for the shooting of a song.
- It seems, the travel was more for Bhuwan KC and his girlfriend Jiya KC than the movie. According to a photo Anmol KC shared, they had met Bhuwan’s first wife, Bijaya Malla KC and his daughter Kajal KC in Europe. (watch the following video report)
- The trailer of the movie was huge success although, there were accusation of stealing contents from Hindi movies.
- The first song of the movie ‘Yeti Yeti Pani’ was also a huge success.
- The second song will probably be successful because of the hype created by Anmol KC, trailer and previous song. But, when quality is considered – the voice doesn’t fit Anmol.
- The second song was released 3 days before the film’s release, in a program held in Kathmandu. The song features Rodit Bhandari’s voice, Rodit’s lyrics and his music in association with Bishesh Pandey.
- The song was shot in 3 days, video edited and released in another three days.
- Was the release of the song necessary? Was it released to cool down the popularity and high expectation of viewers?
- Was it done for an advertisement of a product Anmol is promoting? There is an advertisement board in the song – for a product featuring Anmol with Samragyee in the background of a scene featuring Anmol andAditi. Anmol was reportedly paid Rs. 10 lakhs to be featured in that ad.
- The video is good but the voice of the singer doesn’t seem to fit Anmol. May be it was because the editing of the video was done in a hurry?
A video report about Bhuwan KC’s love story:
It sounds insane. The cast and crew members of ‘Kri’ have left for Europe for the shooting of a song at the last minute.
- It is only 2 weeks before ‘Kri’ releases on February 9, 2018.
- The last two week is the prime time for the promotion of the movie.
- The shooting of ‘Kri’ took a long time – there were multiple delays and issues. The release date was also postponed once.
- Anmol had given his full time to the movie for more than a year.
- If the song is added at the last minute, then why should all go to Europe? They could have prepared a set and done the shooting in a fraction of cost and resources.
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.
A lot of Nepali actors and actresses have produced Nepali movies. Some of them are successful and others are failure. I have listed five such actors who have also directed movies, successfully. Video report of the successful producer/directors who started as actors:
The artists who are successful producers mentioned in the video are:
- Rekha Thapa
- Jharana Thapa
- Deepa Shree Niraula
- Bhuwan KC
- Nikhil Upreti
The list should also have included Nischal Basnet. Nischal started as a film director of ‘Loot’. He acted in movies and was liked by the viewers. He also worked as a playback singer of a few songs in movies. Basnet is truly a multi-talented personality in the Nepali film industry. Basnet’s wife Swastima Khadka is also one of the most popular actress in the film industry. The success of the song ‘Supari Daana…’ song from the film ‘2 Rupiya’ has elevated the popularity of the couple.
The Kartik 3 release of ‘Kri’ has been delayed because of the delay in shooting. In the first look, the release date of Kartik 3 was mentioned. But, according to insiders, there is very little chance of the completion by that date.
The shooting of the movie in Manang is uncertain because of the adverse weather in the area. After the completion of the shooting in Dhampus, the film team has returned back to Kathmandu. The team will head toward Manang after the weather improves. The shooting is expected to complete after the shooting in the remote location.

Actress Pooja Sharma talked about actor Bhuwan KC and Anmol KC in one of her interviews. But, when the interview was published, a misleading title was published causing the mother of Anmol KC, Sushmita KC to express her dissatisfaction.
Here is the screenshot of what went around in the internet.
Sushmita seems to be in a hurry to respond to things. It was not the first time she has done so. She had expressed her anger against a journalist at the time of the release of her movie. The she also wrote hate words against Bhuwan KC a while ago. Now, she is defending Bhuwan KC.
The title of course is misleading, and it makes sense when Sushmita responded by the following statement:
The movie featuring Bhuwan KC in lead role, ‘Black Diary’ was the solo release of May 5, 2017. The movie is competing with the South Indian super hit movie ‘Bahubali 2’. Because of the popularity of the movie, no other producers have risked to be shaded by the Indian film. According to the report, ‘Babhubali 2’ has been running with record breaking response of the viewers.
According to reports, ‘Black Diary’ is being released quietly in single screen theatre. A presentation of journalist Sabin Shakya, the movie is directed by Sujan Ghimire. The movie features Bhuwan KC, Ramesh Singh, Pooja Bhatta, Babita Ghimire, Pawan Karki, Abhaya Kunwar, Roma Bhandari, Anju Majarhan etc. in main roles.

About ‘Raju Raja Ram’
Nepali movie ‘Raju Raja Ram’ is one of the most unique movies in the history of Nepali cinema. The movie features almost all of the top actors and actresses in the Nepali movie industry at that time. The movie is the story of three main characters Raju, Raja and Ram. Like other Shovit Basnet movies, this movie also features all the masala of a typical Nepali movie including music, action, love and comedy.

A new revelation in the relationship between actress Jiya KC and Bhuwan KC – Bhuwan is seen embracing Jiya in a Holi 2017 photo. In the photo shared by Jiya KC, it is quite apparent that the couple had applied Holi colours in privacy to each other, before participating in the group celebration.
Analysis of the holi colours on Bhuwan KC and Jiya KC:
Bhuwan has neatly applied purple colour on Jiya KC’s nose and cheek. Red and green colours are applied on her forehead. Jiya has applied red colour on Bhuwan’s forehead and nose, purple on his left cheek and on his nose, green on his right cheek and nose. They have neatly and strategically applied the colours on each other. Jiya has taken much care to apply it in symmetry where as, colour on Jiya seem to have been applied in a little rough manner. They booth look happy. May be because of photo filter, Bhuwan KC looks very young to his actual age of more than 50 years.
A new movie ‘Rajja Rani’ was announced at the time of Valentine Day week. In the event organized to announce the new movie, Keki Adhikari and Nazir Hussien shared rose and heart shaped ballon. In the movie, Keki and Nazir are going to be featured as the youths of Terai region. Watch the video report:
The announcement ceremony was held in Kathmandu on February 12, 2017. With Keki and Nazir Kameshowr Chaurasiya and Laxmi Bardewa will also be featured in main role in the movie.
It is not only in the Nepali movie industry, divorce among Nepali couple has been in the increasing trend these days. This might be because, compromising is not in the cards of today’s youth. I think, there is nothing wrong to get out of the relationship that is not working out. But, divorce also brings a lot of pain and problems to the both the couple involved. The traditional Nepali society has made it even worse by tagging them ‘bad example’ to the society.
This post was originally written on Jan 29, 2012. In the mean time I had updated it to reflect the changes in the status of Nepali artists. I think, it is the time to rewrite the whole post.
Reema Biswokarma divorced in December 2017
Arunima Lamsal and Amit Aryal divorce
Milan Amatya divorce
Rekha Thapa and Chhabi Raj Ojha
2016 – Rekha Thapa and Chhabi Raj Ojha have officially divorced after 4 years of unofficial divorce after a decade of living together. They signed the legal paper and make it legal in August of 2016. Right after the divorce, Chhabi has told that he is planning to get married for the fourth time. Will he marry the actress Shilpa Pokharel or is he using the controversy only to promote his movie – that is a huge mystery of the Nepali movie industry.
While shooting and post-production of ‘Himmatwali’ Rekha is having an affair with Sudarshan Gautam. But, right after the release of the movie, Rekha reportedly dumped Sudarshan.
