Here’s what you may not have expected from the bold and beautiful actress Namrata Shrestha, but she chops her hair all off for her upcoming flick XIRA (pronounced Zaira). We have been used to seeing her in love stories but she’s ready to shake that image off with the upcoming action film XIRA. Unlike her roles in her previous movies, she is featured as a martial artist in this film.
Written and directed by Ashutosh Shrestha, the film has a very fresh team with the debut actors Srijana Regmi, Suzta Shrestha and Samrat Magar including the director himself. Movie also stars Ramon Dash Shrestha and Anoop Bikram Shahi. The actors of movie arrived at the press launch in character and Namrata’s new short hairdo wowed many in the audience.
During the press-meet, debut actors Srijana Regmi, Samrat Magar and Suzata Shrestha spoke about the challenges of facing the camera and the support that they received from the unit during the filming. Namrata shared that her six months physical training was extremely tiring and demanding to bring her body to form. Here’s what she posted on her Facebook
“I am very glad to share the glimpse of press-meet of the movie “Xira”! Xira is an action movie written and directed by my friend Ashutosh and produced by Trendsetters and Highly high entertainment.
