I have prepared an experimental video abut a discussion in Twitter about Nepali movies. This is the first in the series – a very dull and completely uninteresting topic. Although, the topic wasn’t interesting at all, the response among Twitter friends was very good. So, I prepared a 3 minutes long video about the discussion.
The actress, Archana Paneru, raised in fame by posting sexually aggressive photos on social media. In a short span of time, a lot of things happened to her. She got kicked out of her school, was arrested twice, was chased away from home and landed in a couple of movies. After all that, Archana and her mother Sunita Paneru are currently dancing in a dance bar in Thamel with her (a short clip of her dancing is seen in the following video.)

July 2016 – ‘Jism’ was released but Archana didn’t help in the promotion of the movie.
Two new Nepali movies ‘Kalo Pothi’ and ‘Chhesko’ have released in theater on June 3, 2016. The moves are targeted to different types of viewers. ‘Chhesko’ introduces Archana Paneru in Nepali movie industry and is targeted to the viewers who are looking for glamour in the movies. In the other hand ‘Kalo Pothi’ is targeted to the serious viewers who want quality story and story presentation.
‘Kalo Pothi’ is directed by Min Bahadur Bham and features Sukra Raj Rokya, Khadka Raj Nepali, Jit Bahadur Malla, Hansha Khadka, Benisha Hamal, Bipin Karki and others. The script of the movie is written by Abinash Bikram Shah and Min Bahadur Bham.
The Film Development Board (FDB) chief, Raj Kumar Rai was seen at the press meet of upcoming release ‘Chhesko’. The movie produced last year and ready to release at that time was delayed because of the earthquake of 2015. Before the release next week, the movie producers had added actress Archana Paneru in some scenes. The movie is promoted as if Archana is the lead and most important actress in the movie. The actress who is debuting in the movie had been one of the most controversial actress in the history of Nepali movie industry.
The presence of Raj Kumar Rai in the event was surprising as he was the one who was against Archana Paneru entering the film industry. Because of that, Rai had delayed the approval of ‘Jism’, the Raju Giri movie which was supposed to be the first movie of Archana. Watch a video report:
Raj Kumar Rai had also ordered the arrest of Archana and the entire ‘Jism’ team in Pokhara. They later patched up and the movie was approved. But, by the time the movie was finalized the relationship between Archana Paneru and Raju Giri soured. Now, Archana is planning to lodge a complaint against Raju Giri in the government regulatory body, FDB.
The actress who was going to debut in upcoming movie ‘Jism’ has told that she is no longer involved in the movie. She has told that she is going to complain to the Film Development Board to stop its release. Instead of ‘Jism’, Archana has said that she is going to debut in the June 3, 2016 release movie, ‘Chhesko’.
Watch the following video report on the incident:
