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.

About ‘Sayaad 2’

The movie is made on the story of Sunil Rawal, dialogue by Kedar Bhusal. Dirgha Khadka has edited 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.

Like previous years, celebrities have shared their photos and videos in social network. I had posted a collection of photos shared early by some celebrities. This is a latest update with more photos.
Hot actress Sushma Adhikari’s holi 2017
A video on How artists celebrate holi:
Holi photo of actress Barsha Raut. Barsha is one of the most popular actress these days with threes successful movies in her credit – ‘Nai Nabhannu La 4’, ‘Chhaka Panja’ and ‘Jatra’:
In Laxmi Puja, ‘Prem Geet’ actress Pooja Sharma cooked Sel Roti, the traditional rice-bread cooked in special occasions like Dashain and Tihar. Cooking Sel Roti is not easy job. Based on the photos Pooja shared, she had cooked pretty good sel roti. Using the photo one of the prank groups of Facebook wrote something like – “if she could cook a perfect sel roti, she is good enough to marry.”
In response, Pooja wrote, “Please don’t use our pictures in wrong way or for wrong purpose.” Somebody shared the picture in question:
Watch a video report of Pooja Sharma’s Tihar and the photos of Pooja making sel roti. On Bhai Tika day, Pooja went to an orphanage, Rakshya Nepal, and had some fun time with the kids who would otherwise be on their own on the second biggest festival in Nepal.
Nepali actress has shown an extreme fan-love towards Bollywood film star, Shah Rukh Khan. On the 51st birthday of Shah Rukh, Pooja Sharma and the crews of her upcoming movie ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’ ordered a cake. Pooja cut the cake and shared it with her friends.
In the following video Pooja is seen very excited to celebrate her favourite star’s birthday:
Actress Pooja Sharma debuted in ‘3 Lovers’ with another actress Priyanka Karki. Pooja’s last movie ‘Prem Geet’ was liked by the viewers. She is currently busy in the making of the sequel of the movie ‘Ma Yesto Geet Gauchhu’. The producer of ‘Prem Geet’ has also announced another sequel titled ‘Prem Geet 2’.
Deepawali and rangoli are usually made by women in the house. So, I haven’t found any male celebrities sharing the such artworks online. I have collected the photos of the Nepali film actresses and some videos to compile the following video. In the background I have used a video clip of the well known comedy poet, Shailendra Simkhada, telling one of his latest poems in the Sisnopani Deusi program held on the Deepawali day in Kathmandu.
Shailendra’s poems are satirical and funny. Sometimes the words in the poem and the photos might seem connected but, that is not true. I have placed the photos of the actresses alphabetically, so if you find any connection between the words in the poem and the photos, it is not intentional.
Watch the video:
In addition to the poem of Shailendra Simkhada and photos of actresses celebrating Laxmi Puja, I have also added a video clip at the end of the video of actress Priyanka Karki dancing with the little Bhailo girls at her home. The song she is dancing is one of the most popular songs of her movie in theatre ‘Chhaka Panja’. The movie had recently celebrated 51-days in theatre. Continue reading

I had written a per-release review of 3-lovers back in December 2012. Before being released in Nepal, the movie was premiered in Israel. The movie team had protested to the fact that the Censor Board had awarded it a PG certificate. The movie was released on December 7, 2012.
Watch ‘3 Lovers’ in full:
After Rekha Thapa, Priyanka Karki, Namrata Shrestha, Niruta Singh, Chhulthim Gurung etc., another Nepali actress has also tried singing. This time, the ‘Prem Geet’ actress, Pooja Sharma has become a new singer. The actress has given voice to a song titled ‘Prem Katha’, a duet song with a well known singer, Anil Singh.
In addition to giving their voices, both Anil Singh and Pooja Sharma are also featured as the models in the music video (music video is attached at the end of this post). My video report about Pooja’s debut in singing:
Pooja had also released a song in January this year. But, she took it offline before I could review it for some unknown reasons. Two other actresses who had also released music videos in January 2016 were Priyanka Karki and Chhulthim Gurung. I had shared their music videos at that time.
UPDATE: Dashain has finished today. I collected 100s of photos of celebrities. But, posting them in the page would not be that much interesting to the most of the site visitors. So, I collected the photos of 40+ Nepali actress celebrating Dashain this year and prepared a video (I deleted the video – nobody watched it).
I also prepared a video about the fist Dashain of two Miss Nepal sons. In addition to the sons of Jharana Bajracharya and Malvika Subba, the daughter of actress Richa Ghimire also celebrated her Dashain for the first time in her life.
