It is a myth that multiple film releases on the same day hurt the producer. I reached to the conclusion after a bit of research on the history of such releases in the past.
After I wrote the news about the two new and highly awaited movies – Anmol KC’s ‘Kri’ and Shweta Khadka’s ‘Kanchhi’ releasing on the same day for the Valentine Day of 2018, I thought about the benefits and loss to the producers by such releases. Apart from my personal analysis the research on the history of film releases also supported the notion that – good films are successful no matter how many films release on that day. Bad films don’t get any viewers even if they get solo-release slots.
Before I go deep in case studies, here is a video report on the issue:
The release date of upcoming movie of Anmol KC ‘Kri’ has been finalized for Magh 26 (February 9). The date is the same date in which, Shweta Khadka’s comeback movie ‘Kanchhi’ was previously finalized. It these two movies are released in the same day, it would be a huge clash for them as both of them are the most awaited movies of the current time.
I had prepared a video report of Shweta’s movie ‘Kanchhi’ yesterday about how the song of the movie is setting record viewership.
The release date of ‘Kri’ was was announced by the producer Subash Giri in Facebook after the completion of the shooting of the movie in Pokhara.
The new actress of upcoming movie ‘Kri’ who is going to be featured opposite to Anmol KC, Aditi Budhathoki, is a well known model. She has been popular in social media for her bold and attractive photos. She regularly posts bold photos in Facebook and Instagram. The owner of a hot body lives in Mumbai and is working in various assignments in India. She is also trying her luck in Bollywood. But, before she could land in a role in Hindi movie, she decided to accept the proposal to work with the youth’s sensation, Anmol KC.
Although ‘Kri’ was scheduled to release in Tihar, the release was delayed for an unknown reason. It is suspected that ‘Chhakka Panja 2’ team might have influenced in delaying the release. Chhabi Raj Ojha’s movie ‘Mangalam’ was delayed on the request of Deepak Raj Giri. At the time of this writing one of the producers, Bhuwan KC, and his son lead actor Anmol KC are currently in the USA and there is no sign of release preparation. But, Aditi’s popularity is in increasing trend.
Who is Aditi Budhathoki?
Aditi is originally from Damak, Jhapa and the current permanent address is Sinamangal, Kathmandu. She however mostly lives in Mumbai, India. She hasn’t revealed her exact age but, she celebrates her birthday on June 28. (According to NepaliActress she turned 25 in 2017) A student of Bachelors in Information Technology, Aditi prefers to identify herself as a fashion blogger and a fashion model. After the release of ‘Kri’ she would be an actress too. Although she was seen in a few Indian music videos, she is yet to be featured in a feature movie.
The shooting of the upcoming movie of Anmol KC, ‘Kri’ is still going on. The movie that got the media attention since its first announcement, has been in the headlines despite of the secrecy surrounding the movie. In the first look poster, Anmol is shown to be featured in action role, a sharp contrast to his lover-boy avatar in his previous movies. Anmol had built body and had kept his looks secret by staying away from the media since the announcement of the movie. I had prepared a video report with an exclusive preview of Anmol KC’s body:
After the release of first look, the curiosity towards the movie and the actor has risen among the Nepali movie lovers. As Anmol is surrounded by his bodyguards and he is not allowed to be photographed by the media, his looks and some of the closely guarded releases are the only photos available now. I have compiled a list of photos Anmol has shared so far:
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.
On the birthday of the actress of the movie ‘Kri’, Aditi Budhathoki, the first look poster of the movie was released. In both the posters released on Wednesday only Anmol KC is shown. The movie marks the most hyped but, most secret film project in the Nepali film industry. The ‘Kri’ team had created a special aura of publicity from the start of the movie.
The actress of upcoming movie featuring Anmol KC in leading role, ‘Kri’ is a beautiful and hot actress. She knows how to tease her followers in Facebook and Instagram. The actress with decent looks and a hot body, Aditi Budhathoki is struggling in Mumbai. Although she has landed in a number of modelling assignments, she is yet to get a role in movies there.
I had also prepared a video report about the actress. In the video, I had listed 10 things about the actress:
That was a long wait — more than a year after the annoucement, the shooting of the next movie of Anmol KC has started in Lalitpur on April 24, 2017. That was after multiple delays and rumours.
On the first day of shooting the film crew members inaugurated the shooting at Budhanilkantha temple. The first shooting was held at Emperial Apartment, Sanepa, Lalitpur. According to reports, the shooting will last for 60 days at locations in Kathmandu and Abu Khaireni, Gorkha.
Two bodyguards – photos banned at the sets
I don’t have any photos of the inauguration of the movie. That is because, no photos were allowed at the sets of the movie. In addition to that, the lead actor Anmol KC is also provided with two bodyguards so that he won’t be disturbed by his fans at the set of the movie.
Anmol KC has been in the hiding with occasional surprise appearances a few times in the last one year. She reportedly was preparing for the movie and is supposed to be featured in a new looks in the new movie. He is also being paid the highest pay in the Nepali film industry for his role in the movie – 20 lakh.
A model, Aditi Budhathoki, is selected to be featured opposite to Anmol KC in his upcoming movie ‘Kri’. With the selection of a new actress in the movie, Anmol KC has worked with a new entry actress in every movies he has been featured so far. Anmol is a rare actor in the Nepali movie industry, all of whose movies have been successful, so far.
