Multiple marriages of Nepali actress (2016 update – Simpal Khanal and Garima Pant)

Last updated on May 3rd, 2016 at 09:57 am

Let me be clear first – I don’t think it is bad idea to marry multiple times! Relationships should be easy and be mutually beneficial.

This post was started a year ago (on Mar 3, 2015), I am updating it after actress/model Simpal Khanal got married in February and actress Garima Pant married in January.

The traditional Nepali society of single marriage is changing for the better. Now, the marriage has become a more liberal union of a male and a female. It is good development. Questions are however raised when some woman ruthlessly steals the husband of an unsuspecting wife or vice  versa.

Video of 5 actresses who have married twice:

This post has details of few more actresses in addition to the five actresses mentioned in the video above.

The actresses listed below are either of:

  • Previously married and married for the second time (those mentioned in the video).
  • Married for the first time but to an already married male. (stealing other’s husband or marrying a widow/divorcee)

This is a post also about the actresses who prefer to be more independent and rebellious when being married is concerned.

The actresses I talk about in this article include:

  • Simpal Khanal (previously married to Prasanna Poudel and married second time to Nadeem. Second marriage for both Nadeem and Simpal)
  • Garima Pant – Garima married the guy who was previously married.
  • Rekha Thapa (Rekha became the third wife of producer Chhabi Raj Ojha.)
  • Sushmita KC (Bomjom) (Sushmita became the second wife of actor Bhuwan KC)
  • Sanchita Luitel (Sanchita was previously married to Aakash Shah. She was also the second wife of actor Nikhil Upreti. Nikhil hasn’t divorced his first wife so, he is still married to both Sanchita and Kopila Upreti)
  • Saujanya Subba (Saujanya Subba married Bhupen Chand . It was the second marriages for both of them)
  • Pooja Chand (Pooja R Lama) (Pooja was previously married to Suraj Chand. It was the second marriage for Pooja’s second husband Raju Lama)

Simpal Khanal marriage

Actress and model Simpal Khanal married for the second time this year, to a UK resident businessman, Nadeem. Simpal was previously married to music video director Prasanna Poudel and was divorced. Simapal’s new husband, Nadeem is also a previously married man with a toddler son from his other wife. It is not known if he has divorced the previous wife or not.

Garima Pant marriage

Actress Garima Pant marriage also came as a surprise. Although I had talked about the affair with Hari Sharma Thapaliya in Nepaliactress, the marriage and partnership in business was unexpected.

Rekha Thapa marriage

As a new actress, Rekha Thapa, debuted in Chhabi Raj Ojha’s film ‘Hero’ and ended up marrying Chhabi. It was Chhabi’s third marriage. Now Rekha and Chhabi have divorced. Chhabi is reportedly having an affair with his new introduction in the industry, Shilpa Pokharel. If Chhabi marries Shilpa, she would be his fourth wife. Chhabi divorced two of his wives and the other (Gitanjali) committed suicide.

Rekha Thapa was also having an affair with previously married Sudarshan Gautam (at the time of this writing in 2015). Rekha had introduced the amputee Sudarshan in her film ‘Himmatwali’ as an actor. Sudarshan divorced his wife, Ambika Hamal, and the affair with Rekha also ended as soon as the movie ‘Himmatwali’ was released.
