MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA JANUARY 02, 2016 09.40 P.M.
On December 17, 2015, I got a message from Vinay Shreshtha wishing me on my birthday. He also told me about his Nepali movie Resham Filili [ 2015 ] [ रेशम फिलिली ] .
He was a student of Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Lab, Mumbai. I don’t exactly remember the year but it must have been between 2000 & 2005. During those years I was working with Mr. Kapoor and Vinay Shreshtha joined the batch.
After completing the course, he returned to Nepal but kept in touch. In 2008 / 2009 he came to visit me when I started my own institute. He was planning Visa Girl at that time. He gifted me a replica of PASHUPATI NATH TEMPLE. I still have that gift in my Mumbai office. It always reminds me of Vinay Shreshtha and Nepal.
Visa Girl [ 2012 ]
Starring – Reecha Sharma, Vinay Shrestha, Karma, Raymon Das Shrestha, Saloni Rajbhandari, Menuka Pradhan, Reema Bishowkarma etc.
Director – Prachanda M. Shrestha
Producer – CG Entertainment [ Entertainment wing of Chaudhary Group. The owner of Chaudhary Group, Binod Chaudhary was declared the first billionaire in Nepal . ]
The much publicized Nepali movie Visa Girl [ 2012 ] couldn’t do good business in Nepal. On the occasion of Christmas December 25, 2012, the movie was premiered in Gangtok, Sikkim also. The lead actors in ‘Visa Girl’, Vinay Shrestha and Richa Sharma are also the co-producers of the film.
Visa Girl is a story of three boys named Aditya, Riyaj and Sandesh eager to go abroad at all cost. They have enough of their life in Kathmandu and are trying their best to go USA. In a charity program they met a beautiful girl named Stuti, a green card holder, who was going back to the USA soon. The trio named Stuti the Visa Girl and start trying their best to impress her.
After Visa Girl [ 2012 ] , Vinay Shreshtha’s 2nd Nepali release was Resham Filili [ 2015 ] .
Resham Filili [ 2015 ]
Nepali Movie [ रेशम फिलिली ]
Resham Filili is nepali comedy movie directed by Pranab Joshi. The movie was in limelight after the release of title song Jaalma on YouTube , which became instant hit. I am posting the YouTube link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6eO7oweFJU
Starring – Vinay Shrestha, Karma, Kameshwor Chaurasiya and Menuka Pradhan.
Writer and Director – Pranab Joshi.
Producer – Madhav Wagle
Resham Filili [ 2015 ] is produced under the banner of Actor Vinay Shrestha’s production company V Motion Pictures. This is the second venture of Vinay’s production company, Visa Girl [ 2012 ] being the first.
Resham Filili was released on April 24, 2015, the day before Nepal earthquake . Earthquake had huge impact on the earning of the film. However,the film earned about 71 lakhs gross in just one day.
The film was then re-released on August 28, 2015 nationwide. It was released in India in December 2015.
In fact my Nepal connection started with Jal Shah, a heroine of Nepali films, who was very popular during the 90s. From 1996 to 2005, she acted in about 50 Nepali film and is now settled in USA with her family.
Though Jal Shah was my first Nepal connection, but Vinay Shreshtha will always be special because he maintained the relationship. I am happy for him and his film career in Nepal. He is very down to earth and well-behaved even after doing two films. Whenever he talks, he is very courteous and gentle. Though he can throw starry arrogance but he never did it even once.
May God give him all the success and glory , which he so rightly deserves. He started his journey with Visa Girl [ 2012 ] and Resham Filili [ 2015 ] is going to be only his next step before he attains international fame and eternal glory as a bright shining super – star of Nepal.
On behalf of all the students & staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Merchandise, I congratulate Vinay Shreshtha and pray for his bright future.
May God bless him !
