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).
Three new Nepali movies ‘Miss Nepal’, ‘Jodi No. 1’ and ‘Luki Luki’ have released in theater in Nepal on Friday May 30, 2014. While ‘Miss Nepal’ had been very controversial and was been a focus of media for some time, other two movies were relatively unheard of.
The movie based on beauty contest Miss Nepal is titled ‘Miss Nepal’ and features the producer Suvekshya Thapa as Miss Nepal. The movie directed by Surendra Tuladhar is going to release in
23 theaters in Kathmandu and 40 theaters out of Kathmandu. With Suvekshya, the movie also features Sabin Shrestha and Kshitiza Shakya in lead roles.
The movie got in limelight when Miss Nepal organizer Hidden Treasure tried to block it. Suvekshya also posed topless to get the media attention. She had been actively using social media sites to promote the movie and share the poster for the last few months.
