This is a rare incident – journalist Rabi Lamichhane and Nekita Poudel got married in a private ceremony held at Mystique Mountain Resort in Nagarkot. The place is also near the birth place of Lamichhane. It is interesting that, Rabi had gone and lived in the place to celebrate his honeymoon with his wife Nekita in Februaty at the same resort.
When they went there, it was snowing a lot. Rabi had shared a live video of the place and he had shared photos of the couple at the place at that time. That was the time after Rabi and Nekita had got married in court. So, they were officially married at that time. The choice of the place for marriage at the same location they went for honeymoon is interesting. Continue reading
Although 4 different people of the Nepali film industry got married today on May 7, 2019 it was only two marriages. Two directors married today. One director married the actress of one of his films, ‘Aishwarya’ and another director married the producer of her directorial debut film ‘Intu Mintu Londonma’.
It was not a surprise event because it was a well known fact that they were seeing each other for some time. The relationship between the choreographer Renasha Bantawa Rai and the producer Prajwal SJB Rai had been a decade old. They had been working together in movies for a long time. Renasha is a well known choreographer and she is doing second movie as a director too. The success of Intu Mintu Londonma has helped Nepali film industry find another hit director.
The relationship between Diwakar Bhattarai and his actress in ‘Aishwarya’, Deepika Prasain flourished during the shooting of the movie. They went to court and got married even before the film was complete. They got engaged in an official ceremony a while ago. Diwakar Bhattarai is one of the most successful directors of the film industry. After the success of ‘Jatra’, ‘Aishwarya’ and ‘Captain’ he is one of the most sought after directors of the Nepali film industry. Deepika is also considered an actress with potential.
As all the four are known to be successful person in their field, it seems, these two couple will rule the film industry in the coming days. The only other successful couple in the film industry that I can recall is Swastima Khadka and Nischal Basnet.
Congratulation to both couple and wish them a long and fun filled relationship.
Here is the video report. No video clips of the actual marriage are available yet. So, I have compiled the photos available so far to create the video report.
Film Director Subarna Thapa has married journalist Devaki Bista. The marriage ceremony was held in a private cremony held among firends and family members.

The marriage ceremony between actress Barsha Raut and Sanjog Koirala was held at Hotel Raddison. The event was held among close friends and families. No media was allowed to record the wedding. Only the official photographers and videographers were allowed to record the event.
Previously, actress Nisha Adhikari had done similar wedding. No media was allowed in the marriage ceremony either.
Prior to the marriage, the new couple were preparing for the big day on Valentine Day. On Feb 12, they performed the engagement ceremony. The event was also a private function with close friends and family members.
On February 13, there was a Mehandi ceremony amongst Barsha’s close friends. Present in the ceremony was actress Priyanka Karki. Continue reading
The ‘Nai Nabhannu La 4’ debut actress Barsha Raut has announced her marriage with her long-time boyfriend Sanjog Koirala on the Valentine Day of 2019. The announcement was unexpected although they were together for more than 5 years and everybody knew they were going to get married. The announcement was made a month prior to actual marriage day. It is a coincidence that, the day is also believed to be a good day for marriage according to the ancient Hindu belief (Shubha Sait for marriage).
Barsha Raut’s boyfriend, Sanjog Koirala is also an actor. He has acted in movies like ‘Utsav’ and ‘Chhakka Panja 2’. But, Koirala is not as popular as Raut in the film industry. Sanjog is also a businessman running his own business.
Congratulation to Barsha and Sanjog for the marriage and I wish them a very lovely and long-lasting relationship.
The director of Nepali movie ‘Aishwarya’, Deewakar Bhattarai, has married the actress of the film, Deepika Prasain. The director had introduced the actress in the film industry in the movie and they had started dating while the film was being shot. Now, Deewakar and Deepika have confirmed the relationship and have told that they have performed an official engagement ceremony with the friends and families of both parties.
In an interview, Deepika has also told that they had also married in the court during the shooting of ‘Aishwarya’ and kept it a secret. Deepak and Deepika are also planning to perform a traditional marriage ceremony in the future. For now, they are in a Thailand tour – a honeymoon tour. It sure is a strange relationship – with unique 3-step marriage
At first they got married at the court and kept the relationship a secret.
Then they probably talked about the relationship with their parents and then performed an engagement and the third
Deepika debuted in ‘Aishwarya’ and her second film, ‘Chhakka Panja 3’ has also been successful. The director Diwakar Bhattarai is also known to be a well known director. He was the assistant director of ‘Dreams’, the debut film of Bhuwan KC as a director. He has also directed another Bhuwan KC film, featuring Anmol KC in lead role, ‘Captain’. The movie is yet to release and is expected to be a successful movie.
It seems both Deepika and Diwakar are going to rule the Nepali film industry in the future.
The following is the post by Deepika in Instagram:
There was a popular song of the past by Kumar Basnet:
“Chori Bhandaa Aama Taruni, Lipsitck powder le…”
The songs says that the mother looks younger than her daughter by the use of makeup. According to the latest news, the song needs to be modified a little bit:
“Chora Bhandaa Aama Taruni…”
That is because, the mother of the superstar of the Nepali film industry, Anmol KC, is getting married. Sushmita got engaged to Fiji born, Australian businessman Killan Swami on September 9, 2018 in an event held in Singapore. They are going to get married on the Valentine Day of 2019.
More details on the marriage is yet to come. There was a rumour about the relationship with an Indian businessman in 2014. It seems, she has taken more than four years to formally accept the marriage proposal of her boyfriend.
At the time when Bhuwan KC is openly courting Jiya KC and are reportedly living together in Bhuwan’s home, Sushmita’s marriage makes sense. Continue reading
