Action against Thapa

KATHMANDU: Nepal Cine Artistes’ Association has taken action against cine artist Suvechha Thapa for allegedly posing for a photo covering her breasts with a khada scarf, which is considered sacred by Buddhists and Hindus.

A meeting of the Association’s executive committee has suspended Thapa, which means that she will not be able to be involved in any film-related activities for six months.

President of the Association, Ram Keshar Bogati said the Association’s executive committee took this decision and the action was taken with the realisation that artistes should not hurt the sentiments of any religion.
