Director Ramesh Adhikari is going to make a film based on the Kotparva (the second largest massacre in the history of Nepal) that pushed Nepal under the Rana rule for 104 years. Informing that the shooting of the film named ‘Kot Parva’ will start from next Magh 21, Ramesh said that the script writing work has been completed and now the script is being discussed with historians.
He informed that along with the old actors, the actors of the recent era will also be acting in the film. However, no actor has been selected for the film yet. It is said that some domestic and foreign companies will also cooperate in the production of the film, which will be presented by Ramesh Adhikari Film Production. Mahesh Dawadi has written the story of the film.
Director Adhikari says that the film, which will be shot in Hindi and Chinese languages along with Nepali, will be released simultaneously worldwide. He also plans to cast foreign actors in the film. He said that the post production work of the film will be done in a studio in Mumbai. He claims to make an excellent and classy film this time by correcting the shortcomings of ‘Nalapani’.
The massacre that took place when there was a dispute between the Bhardars who had gathered to find the killer of Gagan Singh, a confidant of the queen, is called ‘Kot Parva’. This massacre handed over the unstable politics of Nepal to 104 years of Rana rule. In this incident, 11 Chautarias, 6 Pandeys, 3 Thapas and 11 regional Bharadars were killed. Jung Bahadur came to power after the Kot Parva on 2nd of Ashwin 1903 in Bikram Samvat. After that, the Rana dynasty lasted for 104 years in Nepal.
