Like every other fields, film writing in Nepali film industry is also dominated by males. Only a few writers are female. When the script writing is done by the wife of the director or the producer of the movie, question arises how genuine the writer is. For example, wife of noted director Sambhu Pradhan’s wife Nutan Pradhan and actor and producer Bhuwan KC‘s ex-wife Sushmita KC have also written scripts.
Actress Arunima Lamsal wrote the script of ‘Deepsikha‘. When the movie failed to impress audience, Arunima’s career as a writer is considered to have ended. Another writer, Kusum Anshal is also known to write the script of a movie made jointly by Nepal and India – ‘Panchawati’. Last year, actress Benisha Hamal had told about writing the script of a movie but, nothing is heard about that again.
