This is an update to a post originally posted on Jan 29, 2012. A new/updated version was posted 2 years ago on Dec 6, 2016. This updated version includes the recent divorces including that of Manoj Gajurel, Reema Bishowkarma, Milan Amatya, Arunima Lamsal and Neelam Dhungana.
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.
The super hit Nepali movie ‘Saino’ is a presentation of Triple Gem movies. The movie featuring Indian actor of Nepali origin, Danny Denzongpa, Bhuwan KC and Tripti Nadkar was one of the most liked Nepali movies of all time. The music of the movie is still popular among Nepali people.
Nepali film – Ma Timi Bina Marihaalchhu Starring – Bhuwan KC, Sushmita KC, Jharana Thapa etc. Direction– Dayaram Dahal
“Ma Timi Bina Marihaalchhu” is made on the story and concept of the lead actress and Bhuwan KC’s wife of that time, Sushmita KC. Sushmita is also the mother of actor Anmol KC. After Sushmita and Bhuwan divorced, Sushmita started calling her Sushmita Bomzom. But, there was a problem with the name. That was because she had obtained the Nepali passport under KC. When she couldn’t get the passport under her maiden name, she had to seek the support of Anmol KC. Being the mother of a Nepali citizen, she could renew her passport. Now, Sushmita is going to marry an Australian of Indian origin. Read detail about the latest marriage announcement. You can also read about the affairs and marriages of Bhuwan KC here.
Although it is a personal choice of an individual whether to get married or not – we are still plagued with the male-dominated social feeling. When Bhuwan KC married the second time and is living with a third woman, it was considered a “normal”. The same thing by Sushmita is tagged ‘not-so-normal’ by the society.
After the divorce, Bhuwan KC and Sushmita KC had realized that the marriage-institution was ridiculous and promised not to marry again. That is the reason Bhuwan is delaying marrying Jiya KC. It seems, Jiya and Bhuwan have reached to an agreement to stay together without marrying.
In an interview last year, Sushmita had also told the same thing. But, there was a rumour of her marriage 4 years ago – with an Indian businessman (not sure if it was the same person she got engaged on September 9). It seems, Sushmita still wants the comfort of being married.
A report I made a while ago about Bhuwan KC’s “unmarried wife”. At that time, I was wondering why Bhuwan won’t even accept Jiya as his girlfriend. Now, it seems, he doesn’t want to give a name to the relationship.
There was a popular song of the past by Kumar Basnet:
“Chori Bhandaa Aama Taruni, Lipsitck powder le…”
The songs says that the mother looks younger than her daughter by the use of makeup. According to the latest news, the song needs to be modified a little bit:
“Chora Bhandaa Aama Taruni…”
That is because, the mother of the superstar of the Nepali film industry, Anmol KC, is getting married. Sushmita got engaged to Fiji born, Australian businessman Killan Swami on September 9, 2018 in an event held in Singapore. They are going to get married on the Valentine Day of 2019.
More details on the marriage is yet to come. There was a rumour about the relationship with an Indian businessman in 2014. It seems, she has taken more than four years to formally accept the marriage proposal of her boyfriend.
At the time when Bhuwan KC is openly courting Jiya KC and are reportedly living together in Bhuwan’s home, Sushmita’s marriage makes sense. Continue reading
Nepali film – Radha Krishna Starring – Bhuwan KC, Kristi Mainali, Santosh Pant, Laxmi Giri etc. Director – Dr. Subodh Pokharel
A presentation of Dr. Subodh Pokharel for Yeti Production banner, ‘Radha Krishna’ was one of the hit movie of its time. The movie features Bhuwan KC with Kristi Mainali in the leading role. In addition to writing the dialogue and script of the film, Brajesh Khanal is also featured in a guest role in the film.
The story of the film is written by the director and producer Subhodh Pokharel himself. Subodh Pokharel is also a medical doctor by training and is also a well known sexologist in Nepal.
Nepali Movie – Daijo Starring – Bhuwan KC, Melina Manandhar, Sunil Thapa, Jharana Thapa, Bimal Poudel, Sudan KC, Riddhi Charan Shrestha, Maya Pradhan etc. Director – Dayaram Dahal
The superhit movie of the past is a presentation of Sudan KC. Featuring Bhuwan KC and Melina in leading role, the film also features Jharana Thapa. The movie is the first film produced under the banner of Shankhadevi Cine Arts, produced jointly by Sudan KC and Sanat Kumar Joshi. Shailesh Acharya and Naresh Poudel are the guest artists in the movie. The child artists are Rojina Ghale and Ayushma Shrestha. Sudan KC and Jharana Rajbhandari are the new face in the movie. Actor Sunil Thapa is featured in a special role. The actress Jharana says that she was 17 years old at the time of production of the movie. Well known director, Shiva Regmi had written the script of the movie.
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?
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. Continue reading
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:
Deepa Shree Niraula
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. Continue reading
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. Continue reading
Shrawan Ghimire for Sayapatri Films presents Nepali movie – Kusume Rumal (1985) Starring -Udit Narayan Jha, Tripti Nadkar, Bhuwan KC, Nir Shah etc. Director – Tulsi Ghimire
The original ‘Kusume Rumal’ is made on the story and editing of the director Tulsi Ghimire. The 2010 version of ‘Kusume Rumal’ is available here. This is old movie – 1985 movie, the original Kusume Rumal. The sequel Kusume Rumal 2 was released in 2010. This movie was originally posted in Google Video.
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: Continue reading
