Nepal locations popular for foreign film shoots

KRITI BHUJU
78 films, documentaries, commercials last year alone

KATHMANDU, July 30: At a time when many Nepali films are being shot in foreign lands, Nepal´s own natural beauty and rich cultural heritage have been attracting many foreign film and documentary makers to do their shooting here. Not only that, various television commercials (TVC) have also been shot in Nepal, one of which is for Volkswagen, the famous German car brand.

On May 27 this year, the TVC for Volkswagen´s New Tiguan was shot in Nepal. The 59-second commercial was shot in Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur. The advertisement is in Chinese. [More]

But the road ahead was not smooth for the freed Kamaiyas. Balram was not an exception. He had to struggle hard to get land where he could build a little house for his family. “At times, it felt more difficult,” he says. “Rebuilding our lives wrecked by slavery was harder than being freed.”
