For the first time in the history of Nepali movies, Rekha Thapa has featured camels in her upcoming movie ‘Himmatwali’. Camels live in desert so, they had to be brought from Rajastan, India.
Using camel in her movie cost Rekha about 2 lakhs for a 2-hours-long shooting. Rekha says that, she wanted to offer variety in the movie so, she had used the animals. Rekha will probably use this and the hand-less leading actor in the promotion of the movie.
It was the first ride of Rekha on camel and she enjoyed the ride. On the first day of the shooting in Mahendranager rekha was featured riding horses. The shooting schedule in the Western city is 20-days-long. After the completion of the shooting in Mahendranagar, Rekha will return back to Kathmandu to finish the remaining shooting.
More photos of the shooting of ‘Himmatwali’ were posted in earlier post.
