The first film actress Rajani KC signed was ‘Deepjyoti’. But, she debuted in Chhabi Raj Ojha’s film ‘Loafer’ and failed to impress the viewers. But, ‘Pardeshi’ became a blockbuster hit, establishing Rajani as one of the successful actress in the film industry.

Ramji Lamichhane is the choreographer, Samrat Basnet is action director and cinematographers are Ramsharan Upreti and Rahul Rai.
The movie is made on the need of love and the sacrifice to be made to obtain it. A presentation of Krishna Khaal, the executive producer of the movie is Ram Krishna Adhikari.

5 milestones of Chhabi Raj Ojha as a Nepali movie producer was first published on Feb 9, 2014. I have re-written the post and updated with one more milestone added at the end. So, it has now become “6 milestones of Chhabi Raj Ojha”.
In 2040 BS Chhabi Raj Ojha started the distribution of Hindi movie. Originally from Dharan, Chhabi moved to Kathmandu to start film distribution. The first Nepali movie he distributed was ‘Bhagya Rekha’ – a movie produced by Chiranjivi Basnet and directed by Deepak Rayamajhi. At that time, he had also gone to Madras for the post production of the movie. Although the movie wasn’t successful commercially, it taught Chhabi the film business. The failure of ‘Bhagyarekha’ prompted Chhabi to find out the reason the movie wasn’t successful. After analysis of the cause and the solution, Chhabi proposed a new concept to the director Deepak Rayamajhi and he also promised to finance the movie.
Updated video on Chhabi’s milestones:

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.
Three new movies have released in theatres in Nepal today on Friday, September 2, 2016. It is interesting that the lead actress of the two movies ‘Laljodi’ and ‘Bracelet’ is Rajani KC. The lead actress of ‘Brindaban’ is Shilpa Pokharel.

Nepali Film – Loafer
Starring – Aryan Sigdel, Dayahang Rai, Sushil Raj Pandey, Rajani KC, Kamal Mani Nepal etc.
Director – Aditya Bikram Lamsal
The film ‘Loafer’ marks the first movie of Chhabi Raj Ojha without Rekha after he debuted Rekha in ‘Hero’ (watch ‘Hero’). He introduced Rajani KC in the film. Initially, Rajani was expected to replace Rekha in Chhabi’s film but, he found an actress in looks similar to Rekha, Shilpa Pokharel, in ‘Lazza’. So far, Shilpa Pokharel seem to fit in the shoes of Rekha in Chhabi camp and she has already done hat-trick by working in three films of Chhabi Raj Films banner. In addition, Chhabi is rumored to be wooing Shilpa to make his fourth wife.
The review of ‘Loafer’ wasn’t as positive as expected and the film wasn’t recommended by our reviewer. The movie was initially scheduled to release on the same date with Rekha Thapa‘s film ‘Kali’ (watch ‘Kali’). But, when Rekha agrees to let Chhabi distribute the film, he re-scheduled the release date of ‘Loafer’.
