What was the first pay of Nepali actresses Keki, Shristi, Neeta, Gauri, Jharana, Deepa?

I have compiled the list of seven Nepali actresses with the first pay they got for their role in a movie. The actresses include: Gauri Malla, Neeta Dhungana, Shristi Shrestha, Keki Adhikari, Neeta Dhungana, Surabina Karki, Jharana Thapa, Deepa Shree Niraula

Watch the video report:

In addition to these actresses the following list contain some of the Nepali actors who had told their first income:

Dayahang Rai was paid Rs. 10,000 for the role in his first movie, ‘Anagarik’. Actor Aryan Sigdel had worked for free in ‘Kismat’. The producer Chhabi Raj Ojha hadn’t paid any money to Aryan. Similarly actor Jiwan Luitel also worked for free. He also debuted in Chhabi Raj Ojha’s movie. Based on these facts, I can safely tell that all the actors who debuted in Chhabi Ojha’s movies didn’t get any pay for their roles.

What Nepali artists say about Nepal Constitution 2072 ?

In a special ceremony held in Kathmandu on September 20, 2015, the new constitution of Nepal was unveiled by the president Dr. Ram Baran Yadav at the Constitution Assembly (CA) in Kathmandu. The constitution was written after an 8-years-long writing process spanning two Constitution Assemblies. Although there are still some people who are not satisfied by the new constitution, ninety percent of CA members had endorsed it. The citizens of Terai region have complained that the Constitution hasn’t incorporated their demands. As the new Constitution can easily be amended by 2/3 majority in the parliament, all the concerns can easily be incorporated in future amendments. According to reports, the new Constitution is the most democratic Constitution in the history of Nepal. On the completion of the lengthy constitution writing process, the film artists have welcomed it and have congratulated everybody for the achievement. I have collected some of the responses of Nepali artists on the historic day.

UPDATEDownload the official copy of the Constitution of Nepal 2072.

The following entries are in no particular order. The Facebook Pages referred are listed in this post.

Comedy actor Hari Bamsha Acharya had welcomed the finalization of the constitution and wished the Madhesh issues be solved soon.
