Rumours are just rumours, totally unreliable. When facts are doctored and altered to support the rumour, the rumour’s reliability goes down the drain. That is what has happened to the recent rumour of affair between Miss Nepal 2012, Shristi Shrestha and Haku Kale of ‘Loot’, Saugat Malla. Watch the following video report on what had happened:
I read a gossip article in an online film-magazine that Saugat Malla and Shristi Shrestha were seen together watching ‘Jhumkee’. The report says that they had tried their best to keep themselves from the prying eyes. The photo shared in the report doesn’t show faces and there is no other proof on the claim. I would have believed in the report if the second photo of the report weren’t doctored. Continue reading

In the press meet, Sushma claimed that ‘Chalechha Batas Sustari’ was a hit movie. She also asked the journalists to do proper homework before asking her questions. She told, “I don’t need to tell what I am doing. It is your job to find out what I am doing.” Continue reading

Actor Anmol KC and the director Hemraj BC were also scheduled to attend the world premier show, but they didn’t.

It is a societal belief that, Kumaris shouldn’t marry throughout their lives.
The Bollywood film industry is considered one of the largest film industry in the world. The movie industry has gone worldwide because of the popularity of the movies. The opportunity to be a part of the film industry is very difficult. In such an environment, few Nepali artists have established themselves as credible artists. The following video discusses the Nepali artists in Bollywood:
Manisha Koirala – one of the top actresses of the past in the Bollywood film industry
Udit Narayan Jha – One of the top playback singers.
A Nepali weekly, ‘Saptahik’ has published a list of Nepali women who were considered to be the most attractive by a group of judges chosen by the editors. In the list, majority of the attractive women are Nepali movie industry actresses, led by actress Priyanka Karki. In the list,

The romantic thriller movie had received a minimum guarantee of Rs. 3.5 million by FD Company in the initial days of the shooting of the movie.

The governments won’t let it happen but, the information technology is doing its best to make the world a borderless place. The Western cultural influence has been more evident in the Nepal these days. After the widespread popularity of Christmas, Halloween has also gained some grounds these days. The festival of ghost and scare, Halloween is fun festival for children and adults alike. With the general public some celebrities have also celebrated Halloween this year. I have collected some photos of our Nepali film artists for xNepali readers.
UPDATE: A video report on Halloween 2015 and celebrations of celebrities.

Halloween is a festival of remembering the dead people in the family. It is celebrated by the people of Christian faith. But, because of the fun aspects of the festival, people of other religion also celebrate it in Western countries. Costumes, candies and Trick-or-Treating is more like the combination of our Deusi – Bhailo in Tihar and Gaijatra festival.
The Miss Nepal 2012, Shristi Shrestha, is going to debut in theater in Shakespeare’s play ‘Hamlet. Shristi will be featured as the character Ophelia in the play. The play in is being played in association with the British Council, Theater Village and the British Embassy in Kathmandu.

Miss Nepal 2012, Shristi Shrestha, is featured in a remix video of a popular song of a Bollywood movie ‘Jackpot’. The music video features the actor of the movie Sachin Joshi opposite to Shristi. In the original filming of the song ‘Kabhi Jo Badal Barse…’ actress Sunny Leone was featured opposite to Sachin.
In the music video, Shristi seem to be a competition to Sunny in terms of the sensuality (watch the video to decide):
Nepali film industry is to get a new actress, a very beautiful one – Miss Nepal 2012, Shristi Shrestha. The model who managed to be one of the top 20 in Miss World 2012, top 8 in Miss Beach Beauty, top 10 in Multimedia and top 10 in dancing skills in the Miss World competition, might bring in something new in the Nepali film industry.
When we talk about the history of Miss Nepal as actresses, none have actually been successful. The last Miss Nepal actress, Malina Joshi is struggling after the failure of her debut movie. Another miss Nepal, Malvika Subba wasn’t successful either. Although Jharana Bajracharya is the most successful actress among the ex-Miss Nepals, she hasn’t been able to leave any marks in the industry. With this history, Shristi’s journey to success as an actress is not going to be easy. Actress Rekha Thapa was one of the contestants of Miss Nepal 1990, but she didn’t win any titles.
