In an event held in Kathmandu, well known director Nischal Basnet has married a new actress in Nepali film industry, Swastima Khadka. In a private event held on February 17, 2016, among his friends and family, Nischal has married and taken Swastima home. In the evening, a reception party was held to celebrate the marriage. A video report on the wedding:
The wedding was not a surprise event, as Swastima and Nischal were engaged in December, and the marriage was being planned since then. The news of their engagement however was a surprise event for many. The age difference between the bride and the groom was talked a lot at that time. 34-years old Nischal is 14 years older than is 20-years old wife.
The date of the marriage of the love-birds of the Nepali film industry, Shree Krishna Shrestha and Sweta Khadka, has been fixed to be held on July 7, 2014. That is almost a month after Shree Krishna and Sweta had confirmed the long-time rumor of their affair. Last year, the couple had hinted about the upcoming marriage but, it took almost a year before they fixed the date.
Shree Krishna debuted Sweta in his home production movie ‘Kaha Bhetiyala‘. The success of the movie paved way for the success of the love between them. They are also running a hotel business together and their second movie, ‘Kohinoor’ is also ready for the release.
The following photo shows the bridge and groom dressed in Nepali traditional dress embracing western culture of kissing in their marriage. Nepal, where kissing in public place is still considered a taboo, such types of marriages are rare.
