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:

On Friday, September 7, 2018, two movies are clashing in the theatre. The producer and the actress of ‘Ramkahani’ had been in tussle with the other film ‘Rose’ for a while. The viewers are also divided between the fans of Pooja Sharma and Pradeep Khadka. Pradeep and Pooja were featured together in the hit film ‘Prem Geet’. After the movie, they are not in good terms with each other. Pradeep did ‘Prem Geet 2’ with the producer, Santosh Sen. Pooja did ‘Ma yesto Geet Gauchhu’ with the director Sudarshan Thapa. They both claimed to be the sequel of the movie. It was a coincidence that both the films were successful establishing both Pooja and Pradeep credible actors of the film industry.
These days, Pradeep is considered one of the highest paid actress in the film industry. Pooja has started producing films herself in association with the director Sudarshan Thapa.
Actress Pooja Sharma’s second movie as a producer, ‘Ramakahani’ is releasing in theatre this week on Friday. The beautiful actress of ‘Prem Geet’ and ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ is well known for her natural acting. The actress works only in the films of director Sudarshan Thapa. Pooja Sudarshan team started with Pooja’s first film as the leading actress=’Madhumash’. After that Sudarshan and Pooja were featured as actors in ‘Ajhai Pani’. After that Pooja hasn’t acted in any films that are not directed by Sudarshan.
Watch the following video to know the real story of Pooja Sharma, her filmy career and her personal details:
After the success of ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ the team had announced the sequel of the movie. But, before the start of the movie, the team decided to do another movie, ‘Ram Kahani’. In the movie, Pooja is seen opposite to Aakash Shrestha.
Nepali Movie – Ajhai Pani
Starring – Sudarshan Thapa, Pooja Sharma, Surakshya Pant, Mithila Sharma, Bijaya Lama etc.
Director – Alok Nembang
Watch ‘Ajahi Pani’, full movie in a single part:
The producers and director of hit film of the year, ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’, Sudarshan Thapa and Pooja Sharma have announced a new movie. The moive titled ‘Ram Kahani’ has pushed back the production of the sequel of MYGG – ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu 2’. The movie to be produced jointly by Pooja and Sudarshan is going to the floor on Falgun 1 (February 13).
The director Thapa has told that the movie is being made on a comedy-love-story theme. The lead actor is yet to be finalized. The director of successful love story films like ‘Mero Euta Sathi Chha’, ‘Prem Geet’, Sudarshan Thapa has also written the story of the upcoming movie. A while ago Kedar Ghimire ‘Magne Budha’ was announced to be charging Rs. 10 lakh for his role in the movie – a huge sum of money for a comedy actor. Another comedy actor, Jitu Nepal, will also be paid Rs, 7 lakh for the role. The film will also feature Wilson Bikram Rai (Takkme Budha) and Rabindra Jha.
Nepali actresses come very cheap when compared to their male counterparts. The actress Rekha Thapa, who claims to be equivalent to a male actress, and always works in female-centric movies, is paid less than most of the male actors. Rekha’s rate is Rs. 5 lakh. Actor Anmol KC is paid about five times that amount. Another actor Pradeep Khadka is also paid more than four times that amount. In Rekha’s last movie, she also paid her co-star, Aryan Sigdel, 3 times the amount she expects others to pay her.
Is it a female dominance or a discrimination? Are the actresses not demanding their worth?
First let’s see who is paid what amount watch the video report:
List of the pay rate of Nepali actors:
- Anmol KC – 25 lakh for ‘Kri’ (Anmol’s father, Bhuwan KC is co-producer of the movie)
- Pradeep Khadka – 23 Lakh for ‘Lilibili’
- Aryan Sigdel – 15 Lakh for ‘Rudrapriya’
- Dayahang Rai – 15 Lakh for ‘Mr. Jholey’
- Saugat Malla – 9 Lakh for ‘Mero Paisa Khoi’
- Paul Shah – 8 Lakh for ‘Shatru Gate’
- Nikhil Upreti – 6 Lakh for ‘Sanrakshan’
The well known actors Bhuwan KC and Rajesh Hamal both reportedly demand Rs. 6 Lakh for a movie.
It is supposed to be the third sequel of ‘Prem Geet’ although it is named ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu 2’. The sequel of hit film ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ was announced on the birthday of the director Sudarshan Thapa, held on Wednesday. In addition to the sequel he also announced another unnamed movie to be produced after the movie.

Actress Pooja Sharma talked about actor Bhuwan KC and Anmol KC in one of her interviews. But, when the interview was published, a misleading title was published causing the mother of Anmol KC, Sushmita KC to express her dissatisfaction.
Here is the screenshot of what went around in the internet.
Sushmita seems to be in a hurry to respond to things. It was not the first time she has done so. She had expressed her anger against a journalist at the time of the release of her movie. The she also wrote hate words against Bhuwan KC a while ago. Now, she is defending Bhuwan KC.
The title of course is misleading, and it makes sense when Sushmita responded by the following statement:
Although the name is borrowed from a song in the movie ‘Prem Geet’, the characters in the movie are not named Prem and Geet (The characters of ‘Prem Geet 2’ are named Prem and Geet). The actor’s real and the screen name both are Paul and the actress Pooja is named Saya in the movie.
