“Aama couldn’t collect as expected”, says Kollywood Actress Mithila Sharma
By Dikshya Tiwari, KATHMANDU: After four months Nepal Government fully lifted the four months of lockdown. Despite the end of the four-month-long lockdown, restrictions remain in some areas. Cinema halls, educational institutions, meetings, demonstrations and conferences, beauty parlors, gymnasiums, health clubs, group games, libraries, museums, party palaces, zoo food, religious places, and other crowded areas will remain closed indefinitely.
On Friday Versatile Actress Mithila Sharma said in an interview with Nepal24hours.com that “This prohibition is not only affecting the present but is going to show a huge impact on future too”.
Actress Sharma also teaches singing and dancing at Kantishwori and St Mary’s High School. She is a graduate in Home Science and Dance who has worked in more than a hundred films, more than a dozen serials, several musical dramas, and numbers of stage shows. Mithila was married to Ex-IGP of Nepal Moti Lal Bohora in 2014.
Sharma started her career at the age of 9. She performed in Gopal Yonzan’s song in front of the late King Birendra on his birthday.
She was first screened in the film Biswas directed by Chetan Karki for the role of a dance teacher which widened her path in the Nepali film industry. Her role as “Gita” in ‘Mask of Desire’ took her to the international film industry. Her works in films like Mukundo, Sukha Dukha, Didi, Muna Madan, Basai, and Afno Manchhe are still well-received which are also Sharma’s favorites. She has always given preference to the character roles rather than the commercial lead roles in her film career.
She was one of the judges for the Nepalese reality dance talent show Chham Chhami that aired on Nepal Television.
Her recent movie ‘Aama’ was an ongoing show in movie theaters all over Nepal before lockdown.”As the collection graph of ‘Aama’ was rising, lockdown started in Nepal and couldn’t collect in the box office as it could have’ says Mithila Sharma.
Many movies are in queue to be released. Unlike Bollywood and Hollywood, Nepali Film Industry is not able to release its movies on the digital platforms as it is not profitable. Like many actors, Veteran Actor Mithila Sharma’s next movie “KATHAPUTALI” is on the line of the release.
