Many actors, musicians, and players are appointed brand ambassadors of various commercial products to increase their sales. These ambassadors usually are established personalities in their field and who potentially have charm and attraction to help in the success of the product they represent.
Pop singer Nima Rumba is brand ambassador of most number of commercial products (Yamaha Bike, Springwood, San Miguel Beer, Face lotion, Subisu, Coke Cola, Shakalaka Boom, Team Samsung and New Look Men’s Shaving Cream) and Sagarmatha area cleaning and maintenance ambassador.

It was rumored that she was stripped from being the brand ambassador of Springwood, but Namrata told that it was not true. She is also a brand ambassador of beach cricket being held on the Trishuli river beach on Kurintar.
In summary, the year 2009 wasn’t so good for Nepali film industry. Many of the movies screened in 2009 couldn’t profit due to lack of opportunity to get theater in time and low turn-up of viewers. In total 32 movies were released in 2009. It is told that only a couple out of the 32 movies could earn profit.
Most of the film halls all over the country are now equipped with digital technology and are hence capable of showing new Hindi movies. As Hindi movies are more profitable than Nepali movies for the film halls, Nepali movies had to wait in long queue for screening them in cinema halls of their choice.
Most profitable movies of 2009 were â€˜Kaha Bhetiyala’ by produced by actor Shri Krishna Shrestha and â€˜Silsila’ by CP Poudel.
Shiva Shrestha is one of the oldest actors in Nepali film industry, famous in action movies and romance movies. Apart from his acting skills he is also a good dancer, a skill lacking in many male actors in Nepalese movies. Shiva Sherstha has also acted in various Pakistani movies and has received numerous awards for his performance. Continue reading
