Upcoming Nepali film JHOLAY received a star studded premiere in Pokhara on February 16th with the actors of the dark comedy Priyanka Karki and Dayahang Rai present to grace the red carpet. On top of the Nepali cinemas familiar faces, the premiere event by ASHIK GURUNG also had the popular Malvika Subba in attendance. Coming all the way from Kathmandu to feature the event was the glamorous Sahana Bajracharya for KTV’s FRAME BY FRAME show. Pokhara’s very own Sipora Gurung was also spotted at the venue, Shree Krishna Hall.
From a screening in Kathmandu to a red carpet premiere in Dharan and Pokhara – JHOLAY is on a roll! I definitely believe such events are a wonderful way to encourage Nepali films and also to boost the morale of Nepali film stars so they get to interact with the public and understand the views of the people, you know, what they would prefer to see and more! Of course, both sides should communicate well. Kudos to Ashik Gurung for organizing the premiere show.
PS. An after-party was held at the Paralounge in Pokhara. Photos from JUKSON.COM/Bhupal Grg. JHOLAY will release nationwide on Friday 21 February.
