Rekha Thapa was on the 7th floor at the time of the earthquake. When it started shaking she couldn’t think of running. They just stayed there. After the earthquake Rekha and her mother ran out of the apartment and went outside. They lived outside after that sleeping in car and in a restaurant.
After being settled outside, she also went to visit the camps of people in Tundikhel, Maharjgujn, and Pashupati to distribute the help she could give. Here are some photos of the visits:
Here are some photos of Rekha Thapa’s visit to Dakshinkali temple on Thursday, April 9, 2015. Rekha’s visit to the temple is at the time she is preparing for the shooting of her upcoming movie ‘Ram Pyari’. The movie will also introduce Rekha’s nephew Aavash Adhikari as the leading actor.
Dakshinkali temple is located 22 km out of Kathamandu and about 1 km from Pharping village. One of the important Goddess temple in Kathmandu is the temple of Goddess Kali. The name Dakshinkali is made up of the location of the temple in the South part of the city and Kali is the name of the goddess. Animal sacrifice, specially goats in the temple have been an issue of controversy among animal rights advocates.
The first look poster of Rekha Thapa’s next movie, ‘Ram Pyari’ shows the new actor Aavash Adhikari and Rekha Thapa on the background. The poster shows that Aavash will be the central character in the movie. Does that mean Aavash’s role would be stronger than Rekha? For the answer, we would need to wait till the release of the movie.
Aavash Adhikari is Rekha’s nephew. In addition to being a blood relative, the son of Rekha’s elder sister, Aavash grew up with Rekha in his maternal home.
Rekha Thapa’s upcoming movie ‘Ram Pyari’ is a film of underprivileged women in Nepali society. Rekha has been addressing the issues of various problems to women in Nepali society and giving opportunity to the abused women in her film. During the promotion of her movie ‘Tathastu’ Rekha had promised two rape victim girls a role in ‘Ram Pyari’.
