Disabled actor Sudarshan Gautam was pulled into controversy when he threatened a journalist to kill him over a telephone call. The journalist of filmybazar.com, Shayam Sundar Giri, had recorded the conversation (attached below) in which Sudarshan threatened him not to link Rekha with him. In a report, published in the online magazine, an unnamed source was quoted saying Rekha Thapa to be living together with Sudarshan Gautam in the USA. Based on the way Sudarshan has reacted, the information is untrue.
In the audio, Sudarsan says, “You need to think ten times, before writing about me and Rekha.” He also asked if Rekha has paid the journalist to write about them. Rekha Thapa however hasn’t responded to the issue yet. She is creating a controversy of her own by refusing to participate in any Nepali Award ceremonies.
Based on the analysis of the communication between Rekha and Sudarshan in Facebook, we had concluded that they have broken from a year-long relationship earlier this year. After that, Sudarshan hasn’t returned back to Nepal. When Rekha arrived in the USA and her activities were kept secret, various speculations were made.
The first movie of actress Rekha Thapa as a director, ‘Himmatwali‘ was a hit movie. In addition to directing Rekha has also written the story and produced the movie. Her mother, Saraswati Thapa is named the producer of the movie. The movie features the music of Basanta Sapkota, Camera by Ramsharan Upreti. Rekha has thanked Dhermendra Marbeita (FDB chief at that time) and Shabir Shrestha at the start of the movie. New presentation in the movie are Sudarshan Gautam and Rabin Hood Sen
It seems, actress Rekha Thapa‘s affair with her ‘Himmatwali’ introduction actor Sudarshan Gautam is over. It had been a long time since Rekha and Sudarshan had been using Facebook to express their feelings. For the last few weeks, they had been silent. When we checked the Facebook profile of Sudarshan, Rekha has stopped liking Sudarshan’s posts and commenting since February 18.
Facebook screenshot: A February 18 post, the last post of Sudarshan with Rekha Thapa’s comments and likes in it.
In addition to the absence of comments and likes, Rekha Thapa is no longer in Sudarshan’s friend-list and vice versa. According to Sudarshan’s Facebook page, he is living in Vancouver, Canada. A person without hands, Sudarshan had been previously married. He is world renowned for climbing Mt. Everest and doing day-to-day things with his feet.
The directorial debut of actress Rekha Thapa and debut of disabled actor Sudarshan Gautam as an actor, ‘Himmatwali‘ was released on Fulpati, at the time of the biggest festival of Nepal, Dashain.
The movie is produced by Rekha’s mother Saraswati Thapa and is released under Rekha Films banner. The movie features Rekha Thapa and Sudarshan Gautam in lead roles. Other actors include Abhaya Chand and Puskar Bhatta. The movie features the action of Chandra Pant, music of Basanta Sapkota and Tanka Budhathoki, cinematography of Ramsharan Upreti and choreography of Basanta Shrestha and Kamal Rai.
The release on Wednesday, against the usual practice of releasing new Nepali movie on Fridays, created a lot of controversies. Rekha ignored the government order. As a result Rekha and her production company Rekha Films were suspended from the Film Producers Association.
Producer Chhabi Raj Ojha‘s introduction, actress Shilpa Pokharel has rejected his marriage proposal but has agreed to live together with him. In an interview with a television program Chhabi and Shilpa have told that they are willing to live together with Rekha Thapa‘s ex-husband.
Statements of Chhabi and Shilpa about their relationship:
Chhabi told, “If a girl like Shilpa is willing to marry me, I would jump in right away.” In response, Shilpa said that she is not ready to married now. She told, if Chhabi is willing to wait she could think about marriage. In the mean time, she also told that she is willing to live together. Based on the statements in the video above, anybody can guess that the relationship has gone a long way.
Based on her actions these days, we can easily guess that actress Rekha Thapa is feeling insecure and impatient to to start something other than acting.
Actress Rekha Thapa
After enjoying a decade-long position of being top actress, she might be well aware that new actresses might dethrone her any time. That might be one of the reasons she was the only winners who didn’t attend the National Film Award ceremony. Rekha later accused the organizers of asking her money for the award.
After the National Award Ceremony Rekha had expressed her dissatisfaction of Garima Pant winning the Best Actress award in SAARC Film Festival and the National Film Award. She made a whole lot of fuss about her not knowing about the SAARC film festival and likes. She also didn’t like Neeta Dhungana winning an award in the National Film Award. She even accused Jharana Thapa winning the award because of her close ties with the FDB chief Pappu. Although Rekha’s accusation were serious nobody took it seriously. Is that a sign that Rekha was feeling grossly insecure as an actress?
Rekha Thapa and Sudarshan Gautam didn’t show up in the ANMA – NASeA Joint convention organized in Denver Colorado from August 29 to August 31, 2014. Rekha was scheduled to premier her upcoming movie ‘Himmatwali’ and meet the guests of the event. But, the premier show was canceled at the last minute and Rekha and Sudarshan also didn’t show up in the program to meet the guests.

After the release of songs of the movie, Rekha as decided to release the trailer. Although the tune of the first release ‘Kali timro nazarle …’ was liked by the audience, the choreography had failed the expectations. Other songs faired average. It is no secret that Rekha’s ex-husband Chhabi Raj Ojha had established Rekha is Nepali film industry. The fact if she could fly alone or not will be determined by ‘Himmatwali’.
The ‘Himmatwali’ actor, Sudarshan Gautam, has done one more adventure, sky diving in the USA. Sudarshan has jumped from a height of 5,000 meters. Gautam is practicing for an adventure scheduled for March of 2016.
In his Facebook post, Sudarsha told, "I did it. Sky Diving above 5000 Meters high. One more encounter of my days as a practice for unbelievable adventure on 2016 of March."
