This is an update to a previous post on the subject. I have also updated the video report for this post.
The original video was made on the suggestion of one of my Twitter friends. The suggestion was make video report on Nepali actresses who smoke and drink in real life. Actually I wasn’t really interested in doing the report in the beginning. It was their personal freedom and I wasn’t a person to judge them by their habits. Drinking is not a taboo anymore. And, smoking is a bad habit almost all of the smokers want to quit.
Unless a drunk person acts irresponsibly, drinking doesn’t usually interface with the other people. But, smoking can expose non-smokers passive smoking. Smokers can at times be a nuisance too. But, I wasn’t willing to discuss the issue until I remember Rajesh Hamal’s incident during the shooting of one of his films. Then I prepared a video report (attached at the end of the post). The following video is the update to the video.
Actor Shiva Shrestha has debuted as a producer of a movie. The movie titled ‘Yeuta Yesto Prem Kahani’ is going to introduce two celebrity children in the Nepali film industry. Actress Kabita Manandhar is the daughter of actress Karishma Manandhar and actor Shakti Shrestha is the son of Shiva Shrestha.
Shiva Shrestha organized a press meet to release the trailer of his debut movie and announce the debut of the two new artists in the movie. Talking at the event, Shiva Shrestha told that his son, Shakti Shrestha, had always wanted to be an actor. He had also acted in a film as a child artist. Shiva told him to wait for the right time. In the mean time, Shakti went to Australia and studied there. He was working when Shiva decided that it was the right time to introduce his son in the film industry. Shakti told that it was a surprise to himself when his father proposed him to act in the movie.
The movie ‘Yeuta Yesto Prem Kahani’ is full of well known artists. There is a possibility that the new actors get lost in the crowd of well known artists.
The ex-girlfriend of Ayushman Desraj Joshi, Paramita RL Rana, has found a new boyfriend. The boyfriend named Hisi Losang is a young businessman. He is named the managing director of a travel agency and a restaurant.
When Paramita shared a photo of the boyfriend in Instagram, actress Priyanka Karki wrote a comment with a heart. In response to Priaynka’s comment, Paramita wrote back a heart and a kiss emoji. This is surprising gesture of the two because, a while ago, Paramita had accused Priyanaka Karki of stealing her then boyfriend Ayushman. Ayushma Joshi and Paramita were in relationship for more than three years when Priyanka came in their lives. Ayushman got attracted towards Priyanka and left Paramita alone. Now, after Paramita found a new boyfriend, the relationship between the three seem to have been better.
Watch video report:
Yes, Priyanka Karki has made a new record of four films of hers running simultaneously in theatres in Nepal. Two those new films, ‘Kohalpur Express’ and ‘Happy Days’ were released on Friday 27, 2018 joining two others which were released a few weeks earlier. Shatru Gate and Lily Bily have been doing good business in theatre weeks after they were released.
Priyanka told that she tried her best not to let two of her movies clash at the time of the release. Priyanka suggested viewers to watch ‘Happy Days’ first then they can watch ‘Kohalpur Express’. If both of them become houseful, you could watch ‘Shatru Gate’ or ‘Lily Bily’.
Nepali Film – Purano Dunga
Starring – Dayahang Rai, Priyanka Karki, Menuka Pradhan, Maotse Gurung etc.
Director – Ram Babu Gurung
A production of Cinema Art in association with Maotse Gurung Films, this movie is about the relationship between two brothers. A social drama movie is about the lives of two brothers who own a boat. The movie by well known director Ram Babu Gurung was relatively less successful when compared to his previous movies ‘Kabaddi’ and ‘Kabaddi Kabaddi’. One of the songs of the film ‘Nira Jahile Risaune’ was very popular.

In an event held to release the trailer of ‘Kohalpur Express’, the debut movie of Keki Adhikari as a producer, three actresses of the movie expressed their dissatisfaction towards journalist Kishor Nepal.
In the event, Priyanka remembered the incident and how she dealt with it. She had complained against the writer and had forced to remove the article from the website. When I checked Kantipur’s website, the issue of Saptahik of March 10, 2017 is not available online.
Watch the video to know the truth:
How did it start?
A few days ago, an website, merofilm published an article based on an interview of Kishor Nepal. In the interview, Kishor had told that – Nepali actresses don’t have the essence. There was a debate in online media about his statement. In the same interview, he had told that he doesn’t like Priyanka Karki. He had told a little knowledgable actress is Keki Adhikari.
It is a surprising announcement by the director Dipendra K Khanal. Ayushman’s ex girl friend and current girlfriend are going to be featured with him in an upcoming movie of the director. The movie titled ‘Changa Chait’ will feature these three in leading roles. In addition to these leading characters, well known actress Reecha Sharma and Sandhya KC will also be featured in the movie.
Actress Priyanka Karki turned 31 years old on Feburay 27, 2018. After winning Miss Teen 2015 title, Priyanka decided to devote her life to the entertainment industry. She went to the USA for film studies and returned back to act in movies. Although she had acted in TV serials like ‘Gharbeti Ba’, she debuted in films after she returned back from the USA.
Upcoming film ‘Shatru Gate’ organized a surprise birthday party for the actress in an event held in Kathmandu. Here is a video report of the party.
The organizers of the Da-bangg Tour Nepal 2018 were stressed out when popular actresses like Priyanka Karki, Swastima Khadka and ‘Thamel Bazaar ‘ dancer Alisha Rai refused to dance in Salman Khan’s concert. The organizers have convinced Sushma Karki and Mala Limbu to dance in the stage in the program. In addition to the actresses two singers including Rajesh Payal Rai have agreed to sing in the program.
Why did Priyanka, Swastima and Alisha refused?
When you look at a broader picture, sharing stage with Bollywood superstar, Salman Khan, is a huge honour. Nepali film industry is a very tiny industry when compared to the Indian film industry. Salman is one of the top actors in Bollywood. So, it sure was a huge opportunity. But, Nepali actresses have taken a bold step to refuse the honour because of the way they were approached.
We appreciate the actresses in the film industry. We often forget about the mothers who brought in earth the amazing actress. I am sharing the photos of the mothers of 10 amazing actresses in the Nepali film industry.
10. Rekha Thapa – The number one actress of the past, Rekha Thapa’s mother Saraswati Thapa is named the producer of Rekha’s home production movies, after Rekha divorced Chhabi Raj Ojha.
9. Namrata Sapkota – She is the actress of ‘Chhakka Panja’, a model and a dancer. The mother of Namrata Sapkota:
That was what actress Priyanka Karki started with in a 500+ words apology letter (in English alone). She was concerned that people might min-interpret it and has also translated the whole text in Nepali language. I don’t know why she decided it was a good idea to present her thought in two languages, it is clear that she has thought about it for a long time and had taken effort to compose the statement.
Before I share Priyanka’s statement, the background information:
Actress Richa Sharma talked in a program held in Kathmandu about why she didn’t like ‘Chhakka Panja’ movie and why it was against womenkind. In response, the makers of the movie attacked Richa by accusing her of telling the viewers ‘fools’ and telling her to ‘get well soon’. There were divided views on who was right. In my Twitter poll, majority of my followers thought Richa was right and ‘Chhakka Panja’ team was wrong to attack Richa.
In response, Richa claimed that she never told the viewers were fools and she was only advocating the better representation of women in films. After Richa’s statement, Richa got all the sentiment and people went against Deepak, Deepa and ‘Chhakka Panja’ team.
[Full details on ‘Chhakka Panja’ Richa Sharma scandal.]
That is how Priyank’s statement was born.
In response to Priyanka’s response, Deepak Raj Giri wrote, “You have written it well. Everybody has made mistakes..” Here is what Priyanka wrote in Nepal (the English version follows).
Here is the the full statement of Priyanka (English):
No she didn’t.
But, the photo of herself biting on the award medal, she shared in her Instagram, surely qualifies her to win an award. Don’t you think so?
The Films Critics Society of Nepal (FICSON) has distributed the Critics Award for the last three years in a program held in Kathmandu. The awards for the year 2071, 2072 and 2073 were distributed in the event. Although the award is distributed this year, the Critics Award 2015 was announced in 2015. (news of Critics Award 2015)

Nisha Adhikari’s upcoming movie team have started a competition – the most interesting photo of a female carrying a male is going to win Rs. 51,000. For that Nisha had carried her husband Sharad Veshwakar and shared the photo in Facebook. To support Nisha, two other actresses have also done the same.

There was a rumour about Miss Nepal 2012, Shristi Shrestha, to debut in a Bollywood movie. The rumour was about her role in a movie titled ‘Sandeep Aur Pinki Farar’, planned to be shot in Nepal and made under Yashraj Banner. But, the actress has denied the rumour and has told that it was a false information. In the Facebook she wrote, “Information might be power but disinformation is abuse of the power.”
According to report, Shristi had gone to Mumbai for the audition of the movie. She left the shooting of ‘Romeo and Muna’ in East Nepal to go to Mumbai. But, before the production banner made the decision of the audition, the rumour was released in media. The actress was stressed out when she received numerous congratulatory messages. She finally wrote a message that the news of her debuting in Bollywood was false. She wrote, “Dear supporters, I would like to inform you all that the recent news stating that I am debuting in Indian cinema right now is false. Please do not misled or misinformed.”
Although Shristi has told it to be false, some believe that she has already landed in the role in the Bollywood movie.
