It has been 8 years that Rekha Thapa and Nikhil Upreti haven’t share screen together. There are number of nepali movies where they are featured in opposite role. Nikhil Dai, Pale Dai, Barmala, Dobate, Ae Pandit Baje, Dhadkan are the hit movies featured by Rekha Thapa and Nikhil Upreti. Since then, Rekha introduced many male actors in nepali film industry whereas, Nikhil was busy with his Bhojpuri movies.
The news said, now Nikhil and Rekha have agreed to work together in a nepali film. The movie to be directed by Shabir Shrestha and produced by Gopal Kayastha. Gopal Kayastha is a distributor of nepali movies and played a role to bring Nikhil and Rekha together again. As he is a producer and distributor of nepali movies, may be desire to cash the charm of two successful artist. It is to be seen if they will still roll the nepali audience.
The name of the movie will be ‘Lootera‘ where Rekha and Nikhil Share screen as opposite to each other. The source said, they are yet to sign a contract but agreed verbally. There are so many cases of verbal agreement failure in film industry. Therefore, there is still some chance of failure of this project.
We can say that with the making of ‘Lootera’, Rekha Thapa and Nikhil Upreti start their second inning on film industry as co-artists. After the making and release of movie, we can see what would be the result. It is to be know, how there chemistry works after the break of 8 years.
But, we want to see Rekha and Nikhil once again in screen. Best of luck for producer, director and both artists. We expect another blockbuster by popular artist and director.
‘Tathastu‘ is upcoming movie of Shabir which is going to release on 25th of Poush, 2071. He is featuring Rekha as a female protagonist.
