Like every years the Nepali celebrities worshiped goddess Laxmi, the goddess of wealth on the third day of Tihar.

The main attraction of the celebration is preparing beautiful rangoli and cooking good foods. Rangoli is the art imported from India. It is similar to our own Mandala art. Nepali celebrities make good rangoli and share them in their social media. I have collected some photos of the actresses showing their talent.
Some actresses made sel roti, a special delicacy of Tihar festival. The sweet bread made out of rice flour is quite popular in the festival. Here is a video report about how actresses learn the skill to make the bread:

Actress Swastima Khadka is featured in the role of a driver in her upcoming movie ‘Bulbul’. Because of the shooting schedule of the movie and the time she had to dedicate to learn driving tempo in the streets of Kathamndu, Swastama didn’t participate in the promotion of her movie like ‘Nai Nabhannu La 5’, ‘Jaya Bhole’ and ‘Chhakka Panja 3’.

Salman is one of the top actors in Bollywood. So, it sure was a huge opportunity. But, Nepali actresses have taken a bold step to refuse the honour because of the way they were approached.
