The prime minister of Nepal, KP Sharma Oli, rejected the proposal to construct a Film City in Dolkha. In an event held at his government residence in Baluwatar, Oli has told that the location proposed by the previous government wasn’t appropriate. He has told that the location in Dolkha is such that it doesn’t see sunshine for more that two hours – that too only for two days in a week.
The location was proposed by the Film Development Board (FDB) during the leadership of Dharmendra Kumar Marbaita. Dharmendra and the team had visited the location various times to come to the conclusion. After the current prime minster, KP Oli rejected the previous decision, there had been reports of protest in Dolkha.
Oli was talking in the promotional event of upcoming movie by Dinesh DC, ‘Fulai Fulko Mausam Timilai’ held on December 28, 2015. The first film promotional program held in the PM’s government residence in the history of Nepal was also criticized the political pundits. KP had told that Dolkha’s climate and geography don’t suit for the construction of Film City.
