Shisha to premiere 11 August

GANGTOK, 01 Aug: ‘Shisha’, a Nepali feature film produced by Anushi Films, is all set to premier at Vajra Cinema Hall on 11 August, informed the lead actress and Director of the film, Uma Baby, while speaking to the press here in Gangtok today.
She introduced the movie as “women oriented” and informed it has been co-directed by Sarad KC who has also scripted the story.
The movie had begun shooting last April and was shot mostly in Sikkim [Namchi, Ravangla, Temi tea gardens and Gangtok], while 10 per cent of the shooting was done in Nepal. The movie will be released elsewhere in the country and in Nepal probably by during Dasain,” she informed.
The movie has Jeevan Luietel as the lead actor, and the junior artists have all been hired locally [such as Roma Giri, Arpana Rai], while the child artist has been played by Pratibha Sharma.
Kunta Pradhan [wife of ex-HRDD Minister, NK Pradhan] and her son Mika Pradhan are also a part of the movie which included a special guest appearance by Bhaichung Bhutia.
The only problems the crew of the film faced during the shooting, the Producer shared, was with the getting of permissions from the various departments for the shooting of the film. This would not have been the case if they had shot in Nepal, she informed. Although there was no assistance provided to the crew by the state government, people from various walks of life did provide assistance for the funding of the movie.
