It seems, movie directing is an attractive profession for film journalists. That might be the reason the Kantipur journalist Subrat Acharya has commenced directing a movie named ‘Adhakatti’.
Another journalist Dabbu Chhetri is currently directing a movie named ‘Passport’. Actor director Dinesh DC had also started as a journalist. A photo journalist of Kantipur, Bikash Rauniar is in film business (it is his wife who is directing the movie). The movie named ‘Megha’ is featuring Manisha Koirala‘s brother Siddhartha Koirala and Namrata Shrestha.
In a latest news, a film journalist for almost two decade, Dabbu Kshetri, has thought that he can direct movies too. A movie named ‘Passport’ will bear his name as the director. That’s not all, he is also the writer of the movie.
Dabbu told that he had studied film direction for the last four years before jumping in the new profession. Dabbu has previously directed music videos including a music video for the 3-year-old child singer, Athiti KC.
Although the artists aren’t finalized yet, the movie is all set to go on floor in the first week of Falgun. The movie to be shot in foreign locations like Malaysia and Dubai is scheduled to be completed in 35 days.

Although they mention the issue date of 10 May and 9 Feb, the passport number of Anju was never issued and that of Mahima was issued to another person.
Such fake passports create unnecessary suspicions and hassle on genuine t
The MRP was controversial from the start, fueled by then foreign minister Sujata Koirala. When it was finally ready for issuance, many expressed a sigh of relief. But, with such fake passport, it seems, the sigh of relief proves to be short lived. (image credit -Kantipur)
