Do directors like him have to work hard to raise the film industry plagued by the Corona epidemic? However, the current directors are silent at this time. Director Bhattarai has apologized to the audience for not being able to give the film during the Corona epidemic. "We are doing injustice to the audience," he said, 'When there was a comfortable situation, we used to tell the audience to come and watch the movie. I really want to apologize to the audience for the situation that has arisen today where we have to say 'watch outsides movies'. He argues that the filmmaker should be able to make a film for the audience even if the situation is the same. Giving an example, he says, ‘If an office person is eating at a hotel for a monthly fee, there is no excuse to tell that person to eat out today and I cannot open a shop. We have created a similar situation now. ' Realizing this, he said that he was ready to do something soon. Informing that a short film is being made for YouTube, he said, "At this time, I am preparing to give it to the viewers even if it is a short film. Two short films will be made public on YouTube before Dashain, 'he said. He is preparing to start shooting for the feature film once the situation returns to normal.
