It has been 4 years since Shree Krishna Shrestha has died. Shree’s widow, actress Shweta Khadka had gone thought a very tough time of mourning. She had remained ‘unconscious’ for the first six months. After that she started treatment and got a little better after she went to the USA for the treatment.
She has forgotten to smile. It took her more than a year to regain the smile. In the beginning it looked like a fake smile. These days, she has learnt to be happy.
Now, after 4 years, Shweta has acted in ‘Kanchhi’ and produced the film. The viewers had also liked the movie and Shweta has now become the actress that Shree Krishna made her. Continue reading

Star Cast of ‘Chaunauti’
The movie ‘Chunauti’ was made in the time before Saroj Khanal went to the USA. Khanal was considered the actor with the most potential to be the next superstar in the film industry. After about two decades in the USA Khanal has returned back to Nepal a couple of years ago. He is also featured in some movies. But, his craze has already diminished these days. The loss of another lead actor Shree Krishna Shrestha, two years ago is a huge loss to the film industry. Actress Bipana Thapa had also left the film industry when she married an Indian national. After marrying she left the film industry and is living as a house wife in India.

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.
It is not a new thing that the smile has returned in actress Sweta Khadka‘s face. The only question now is when she is going to return as an actress.

These days she says that the smile has returned to fulfill the dreams of Shree Krishna before his death.
During the press meet of ‘Ke Ma Timro Hoina Ra’, Sweta told that she is eager to make a comeback. That means the rumours of Sweta is working in a movie script is true.
Sweta Khadka’s Tattoo
Sweta has engraved a tattoo on her right hand. The tattoo has some numbers in Roman letters. The writing enclosed between two flying birds also contain a pair of red cherries.
The writing reads:
IX-XII III-X XIII
Sweta told that the writing is a date that signifies the most important and happiest time of her life. She didn’t tell the full meaning.
