The 33-years-old director, Nilu Doma Sherpa, died on July 1, 2017 (read the news). The death of Nilu is termed suspicious because of unexplained events leading to her death. Here are some of the facts that have made the death suspicious:
- Nilu was in party mood and had participated in the marriage of Nisha Adhikari on Friday. She was also present in the Mehendi ceremony held on Wednesday. She was in jolly mood in that event. She had also shared photo of the marriage and the Mehandi ceremony.
- In the news, it was reported that she complained at 2:00 AM in the night. But, she was taken to the hospital after more than six hours. She was already dead when she reached hospital. Questions are raised why the delay was caused.
- In the news, there are two conflicting health conditions. She was reportedly having depression issues for some time. In addition to that, she was also told to have liver issues. The cause of death however is unrelated – she is told to have died of heart attack. To a layman like me – the cause of death and the health issues are unrelated. (May be some medical doctor might enlighten me.)
Nilu was a lesbian
Nilu was the first and the only film maker who had openly openly admitted that she was a lesbian. In a documentary she made she has told, “I am Nilu and I am a lesbian, homosexual, or gay, however you want to put it.” Watch the following video report for the details:
It is a very sad day for the Nepali film industry. A young and talented director has died of heart attack in her home on July 1, 2017. According to reports, Nilu complained about pain at around 2:00 AM. When she was rushed to the hospital at 8 AM in the morning she was already dead.
