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.
Actress Priyanka Karki and actor and model Ayushman Desraj Joshi have engaged on Saturday July 14th, 2018 in a private function. The engagement ceremony was unannounced and a surprise event for all except their family members. The mother of Ayushman, Raveena Desraj Shrestha, was the first person to release the photos of the engagement in her Instagram and Facebook. Priyanka and Ayushman did the same by sharing the same photos in their Instagram accounts.
Video report coming soon:
