The movie ‘Miss Nepal’ was released on May 30, 2014 in theaters out of Kathmandu and it was released in Kathmandu on June 6, 2014. The organizer of the beauty pageant, Miss Nepal, Hidden Treasure had lodged a complaint with the police to stop the release of the movie. After reviewing the claim, the police had decided that Hidden Treasure’s claim was baseless and allowed the movie to release. In a controversial poster of the movie, the actress and producer Suvekshya Thapa had posed topless with only a fish covering the upper part of her body. The poster later proved to be an exact copy of a Bollywood movie (read more about the poster controversy).
