Bhagawati Films Production presents Anil Kumar’s film ‘Damini’. A film conceived by Dr. Sunil Kumar.

A Bhojpuri dubbed Nepali movie ‘Damini’ featuring actress Rekha Thapa was released on the same date as Rekha’s movie ‘Kali‘. The superhit movie in Bhojpuri however wasn’t as successful as ‘Kali’ (watch ‘Kali’ here).
On the Fulpati day of Dashain two movies of Rekha Thapa are releasing. Such a release of ‘Kali’ and ‘Damini’ at the same time can divide the viewers causing loss of revenue to both of them.
It seems, the clash in release is started when Rekha choose Chhabi Raj Ojha to distribute the movie. Before that, distributor Manoj Rathi was supposed to release the movie. Manoj Rathi group lost the right when Chhabi Raj Ojha entered the scene. After that, Manoj Rathi group purchased the rights of Bhojpuri film ‘Damini’ to release on the same date.
