Nikhil Upreti did dubbing of a movie in Mumbai

Nikhil is living with Sanchita Luitel, somewhere in Mumbai after the reported marriage. Nikhil Upreti is stil in wedlock while Sanchita is divorced from her first previous husband.

It looks like Nikhil is unwilling to come back to Kathmandu anytime soon. He had well prepared for such long absence by completing the films at hand and not signing any new movies. But, the fate is always unpredictable. The dubbing of one of the movie he did, were lost due to technical problem at the recording studio. Four reels of dubbing of a movie named ‘Masti’ were damaged.

The director of the movie, Madan Ghimire, waited for Nikhil’s return for a month. When he realized Nikhil is not coming back soon, he made arrangements for the dubbing to be held in Mumbai with the help of the producer, Dinesh Thapa, and in association with Prime Studio, the recording studio in Nepal.
