Like every years the Nepali celebrities worshiped goddess Laxmi, the goddess of wealth on the third day of Tihar.
Laxmi Puja of actress Neeta Dhungana:
The main attraction of the celebration is preparing beautiful rangoli and cooking good foods. Rangoli is the art imported from India. It is similar to our own Mandala art. Nepali celebrities make good rangoli and share them in their social media. I have collected some photos of the actresses showing their talent.
Some actresses made sel roti, a special delicacy of Tihar festival. The sweet bread made out of rice flour is quite popular in the festival. Here is a video report about how actresses learn the skill to make the bread:

About ‘Fulai Fulko Mausam Timilai’
The movie ‘Fulai Fulko Mausam Timilai’ produced by the director Dinesh DC was highly promoted and had a high expectation of success. During the release of the movie released with Bhuwan KC’s movie ‘Dreams’, DC had used all types of promotional stunt. He had also accused Anmol KC of being unskilled actor. But, ‘Dreams’ became successful movie and ‘FFMT’ failed to attract the viewers. Dinesh DC had released the audio of the movie at the residence of the Prime Minister of Nepal, KP Oli. Oli was criticized for his statement during the ceremony. He was also criticized for the event at the time of crisis in the country.
The movie featured the choreography of Ramji Lamichhane, music by Suresh Adhikari, cinematography by Mankrishna Maharjan, editing by Pritam Pandey, background score by Alish Karki, VFX by Ramesh Man Shrestha, action by NB Maharjan, story by director Dinesh DC and the name of the producer is Amir Ali. The playback singers in the movie are Rajesh Payal Rai, Binika Pradhan, Raj Sigdel, and Deepa Lama.

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 hadnâ€™t paid any money to Aryan. Similarly actor Jiwan Luitel also worked for free. He also debuted in Chhabi Raj Ojhaâ€™s movie. Based on these facts, I can safely tell that all the actors who debuted in Chhabi Ojhaâ€™s movies didnâ€™t get any pay for their roles. Continue reading
Two new movies are releasing in theater this week on Friday – March 4, 2016. Bhuwan KC‘s directorial debut ‘Dreams’ and Dinesh DC‘s directorial venture ‘Fulai Fulko Mausam Timilai’. Both movies have been very aggressive in the promotion of their movies. Dinesh DC’s responses in various programs had been aggressive towards Bhuwan KC’s movie.
The movie ‘Dreams’ is directed by a well known Nepali actor Bhuwan KC. But, Bhuwan won’t be seen in the screen. Instead, his son Anmol KC leads with actresses Samragyee RL Shah and Sandhya KC. The love story movie is targeted to youth audience with focus on all the essential ingredients of an entertaining movie. Initial response to Anmol and the movie had been very positive based on the trailer and the songs. (Listen to the songs here.)
