The actress of Sunil Rawal’s only flop film ‘Sayaad 2’, Sharon Shrestha has accused the producer of sexual harassment during shooting of the movie.
Some of Sharon’s accusations:
- Sunil Rawal was very touchy. He used to touch the actresses, touch their hands and tried to hug them.
- He forced them to drink wine in his birthday in Pokhara during the shooting of ‘Saayad 2’.
- Sunil held and carried two ‘Saayad 2’ actresses during the birthday celebration.
- Sunil used to whisper in ear and kiss her in the ear.
- Sunil had proposed her to be his girlfriend. In return, he promised to help her become the air hostess at Simrik Air.
But, after that, Sharon and Sunil Rawal reached in an undisclosed agreement and have agreed not to talk about the issue anymore. In the agreement, neither of the party have told anything about the things they had told in the past.
Does that mean, Sharon was true in all of her statement?

Intercaste marriage is still a taboo in Nepali society. People have higher affiliation towards their own religion. Young generations are also obsessed by the caste and even the Gotra, a religious categorization of people in the society. One of the most striking public display of the truth on what the people think about their caste was seen when model and journalist Samriddhi Rai told that she didn’t want to marry the guy in her own caste. She told she didn’t want to look at a Rai guy, because she was forced by her family members to do so. She told she wanted to be a Nepali rather than a girl of Rai-clan.
Samriddhi Rai had to face a lot of protest. She was threatened to be boycotted by the Rai community. When things went nasty, she also released a video with an apology. I did a video report on Samriddhi case. At the time of this writing, the video is watched by 23 K people and there are 79 comments in it. (The video is attached below)
After the Samriddhi Rai incident, I decided to do a small research on the Nepali celebrities who had tied their knot with the partner of different caste. I was surprised to find a lot of celebrities who had chosen the partner of another caste. Preparing a report on all of them would be a long report, so I decided to focus on actresses. Here is the list of 10 actresses who had done inter-caste marriage.
The lead actor of Bhuwan KC‘s debut movie ‘Dreams’, Anmol KC is the new sensation in the Nepali film industry. ‘Dreams’ proved to be the third super-hit movies of Anmol KC. He as become the rare actors whose movies have succeeded. Despite of his popularity, Anmol is considered weak in acting. In all of his movies, the actresses have done better acting, but no actress have been as popular as Anmol.
The questions arise – “What is in Anmol KC, that is not in Prakriti Shrestha and Anna Sharma?” and “Will the fate of ‘Dreams’ actress Samragyee RL Shah be similar to those of Prakriti and Anna?”
First let’s watch the analysis video:
- In “Hostel” the actress Prakriti Shrestha had performed better than Anmol KC
- In ‘Jerryy’, the acting skills of actress Anna Sharma was better than Anmol KC
- In ‘Dreams’ the viewers have told that, Samragyee’s performance is better than Anmol
Watch ‘Hostel’ and watch ‘Jerryy’ to check for yourselves.
