This is a huge moment for actress Shweta Khadka. After a long depression, the actress has made a comeback in the film industry as an actress and a producer of her upcoming movie ‘Kanchhi’. The first song of the movie released today shows a lot of potential. In an event held in Kathmandu on November 2, the song made on a folk tune – ‘Chari Chatta Pari…’ of the movie was released. The song made on the lyrics and the music of Rajanraj Siwakoti features Rajan Raj with Anju Panta’s voice.
The song features the choreography of Basanta Shrestha and features Shweta Khadka with Dayahang Rai and Prajjwal Sujal Giri. ‘Kanchhi’ is shot in locations like Mustang, Upper Mustang, Jomsom and Kathmandu.
Actress Sweta Khadka has celebrated Dashain after two years. Before going to her parent’s home, Shweta had taken Dashain tika at her home (Shree Krishna’s home). She took Dashain Tika from her parents for the first time after the death of her husband, actor Shree Krishna Shrestha in 2014. Shweta’s 93-years-old father gave blessing to his daughter, ‘Always be strong, go forward and don’t ever bow low to others’.
In 2014 Shweta didn’t celebrate Dashain because of the death of Shree Krishna and in 2015 because of the death of Shree Krishna’s mother she didn’t take Dashain Tika.
Intercaste marriage is still a taboo in Nepali society. People have higher affiliation towards their own religion. Young generations are also obsessed by the caste and even the Gotra, a religious categorization of people in the society. One of the most striking public display of the truth on what the people think about their caste was seen when model and journalist Samriddhi Rai told that she didn’t want to marry the guy in her own caste. She told she didn’t want to look at a Rai guy, because she was forced by her family members to do so. She told she wanted to be a Nepali rather than a girl of Rai-clan.
Samriddhi Rai had to face a lot of protest. She was threatened to be boycotted by the Rai community. When things went nasty, she also released a video with an apology. I did a video report on Samriddhi case. At the time of this writing, the video is watched by 23 K people and there are 79 comments in it. (The video is attached below)
After the Samriddhi Rai incident, I decided to do a small research on the Nepali celebrities who had tied their knot with the partner of different caste. I was surprised to find a lot of celebrities who had chosen the partner of another caste. Preparing a report on all of them would be a long report, so I decided to focus on actresses. Here is the list of 10 actresses who had done inter-caste marriage.
It is not a new thing that the smile has returned in actress Sweta Khadka‘s face. The only question now is when she is going to return as an actress. Sweta had gone through a long mourning period after the death of her husband Shree Krishna Shrestha. These days she says that the smile has returned to fulfill the dreams of Shree Krishna before his death.
During the press meet of ‘Ke Ma Timro Hoina Ra’, Sweta told that she is eager to make a comeback. That means the rumours of Sweta is working in a movie script is true.
Sweta Khadka’s Tattoo
Sweta has engraved a tattoo on her right hand. The tattoo has some numbers in Roman letters. The writing enclosed between two flying birds also contain a pair of red cherries.
The writing reads:
IX-XII III-X XIII
Sweta told that the writing is a date that signifies the most important and happiest time of her life. She didn’t tell the full meaning.
Actress Sweta Khadka seems to have recovered from the mourning of the death of her husband, actor Shree Krishna Shrestha. In the program held to appoint her the Goodwill Ambassador of a campaign to eradicate childhood marriage and dowry system, Sweta looked like the old Sweta, happy and beautiful. Her smile has returned back and she was excited to participate in the social work. She told that she was promoting the campaign without any pay.
Video report on Sweta Khadka’s appointment as the goodwill ambassador:
Actor Dr. CK Singh is also supporting the campaign started by Raj Kumar Mahato. In 2014, I wrote about actress Garima Pant and CK Singh’s participation in a NGO to eradicate child marriage and dowry. The film artists had participated in the campaign to create awareness in the issues. Sweta’s role seem to be similar although the name of the organization has changed now. In 2014, the NGO was named BHORE. Now, the name of the organization is changed to Child Marriage and Dowry Eradication National Campaign, Nepal.
In a report, actress Sweta Khadka is planning a comeback in her home production movie next year. The news came after the recent report of Sweta’s normal life and the return of her smile.
Video report (comeback news towards the end of the report):
Sweta had been mourning the death of her husband of a month, actor Shree Krishna Shrestha who died a month after their marriage last year.

To show her support she has announced that all the income made by the movie show in the USA will go towards the earthquake relief in Nepal.

In the first interview after the death of her husband of a month, Shree Krishna Shrestha, actress Sweta Khadka has spoken to BBC Nepali radio’s new section, ‘Anautho Byatha’. In the interview, Sweta talked about her condition, her faith and her definition of life. She also assured that she is trying to overcome the grief and start working again.
In the interview, Sweta cried a lot and told that she developed back pain and is being treated now.
A summary of the interview:
On the birthday of late actor Shree Krishna Shrestha, his wife actress Sweta Khadka has asked for his blessings to get well. In a long statement she wrote in Facebook, Sweta told that she is still sick and bed-ridden.
Although Sweta is impatient to work on the plans Shree and Sweta made before his death, her sickness has been a major hindrance. Sweta wrote, "In the previous birthdays I used to be present with a present, this time I have gathered the courage to ask a present of my wellness from you."
When a copy of super-hit movie of late actor Shree Krishna Shrestha, ‘Kohinoor’ appeared in YouTube, the producer/director Aakash Adhikari was shocked. After submitting a complaint YouTube removed the movie. But, some more users uploaded the movie again.
In the last few days multiple copies of the movie were uploaded in different user names. It looks like somebody is playing chor (thief) and the producer is playing police and submitting complaints to the video host before it removes it.
Aakash Adhikari organized a press meet on Wednesday to announce that the pirated copy was removed from the site. But, when we checked YouTube on Friday, there was at least one copy of the movie in the site (screenshot attached below).
Sharing a group photo of Shree Krishna Shrestha‘s family actress Sweta Khadka has told that she is going to accept the family as her own home. In a Facebook post Sweta told, “I would like to live as a daughter and sister in this family.”
