Prasad brings Nischal Basnet on board
Jun 7, 2018-The producers of the new Bipin Karki-starrer, Prasad, on Tuesday announced that the film will also star director Nishcal Basnet. Prior to this, it was announced that film will have Bipin Karki and Namrataa Shrestha playing a distressed couple reeling under the pressure to conceive a child.
Speaking about the film’s new casting set up, director Dinesh Raut said that as soon as the script was finalised, he had Nischal’s image in mind to play one of the film’s pivotal roles. Director of three hit feature films, Basnet has also starred in films like Kabaddi and Dui Rupaiyan, among others.
“When it comes to acting, I am still very reluctant. And I am very choosy about the kind of characters I play,” Basnet said, “Prasad has a very challenging role for me and the film’s script is also very good; so I was interested as soon as I finished reading the script.”
Written by journalist Sushil Paudel, Prasad is being produced under the banner of Subhash Thapa Entertainment.
According to producers, the principal photography of Prasad will start on June 15.
