In some villages including Lamjung, Gorkha, Mustang, Manang, Humla, Jumla, and Dolpa, polygamy is still practiced. Polygamy is the practice of accepting the wife married by the eldest son of the family as his wife by his brothers. Even if they accept her as their wife, they still call them sister-in-law. The film 'Tulki' has been made based on this tradition. The first-look poster and teaser of the film, which was shot in Upper Dolpa during the lockdown after four years of study, was unveiled at a programme in the capital on Wednesday.
The trailer seeks to show the pain and suffering of a young woman born in a Brahmin family living in the lower part of Dolpa after her love marriage with a Sherpa of Upper Dolpa. Swastima Karki is the title character of the film. She is about to make her debut as a heroine from this film. Directed by Dev Jung Thapa, the film also stars Shishir Wandel, Narendra Tamang, Som Lama, Shekhar Lama, Saujan Subba, Sofiya Limbu, Dirgha Lama, and Bhakta Singh Kathayat. The film, which cost Rs 9 million, was shot by director Thapa. RP Karmacharya and Shekhar Lama are the producers of the film, which has Laxman Sunuwar's story, Sanjeev Limbu's music, and Tara Thapa's 'Kimbe' editing. Producer Shekhar Lama said that the film will be screened in different places abroad before Nepal. Shree Dev BL has taken responsibility for the international screening of the film. The film will be screened in the UK first.
Actor Shishir Wandel said that this film could be the turning point of his career. He said, ‘I have never worked in such a separate subject and role till today. This is a really good film. After the release of this film, I see the possibility of getting an offer from such a role in the future. That could be the turning point in my career. "
