The Cinema Times, Kathmandu- ‘Sunkesari’ director Arpan Thapa says, he had taken a risk to make a horror cinema. Thapa in a Press Meet at Chitwan just before 2 days earlier of release day realizes no market for Nepali horror cinema and said had made a horror cinema ‘Sunkesari’ taking all risks.
He claims that he and his entire team had made a high-quality cinema. It will be a trendsetter if ‘Sunkesari’ does good box office. Similarly, no one would dare to make any Nepali horror cinema for at least 6-7 years if it fails. Nepali cinema market for now is full of comedy market.

According to him, the cinema business depends on the audiences’ mentality. If they come to hall with mentality of entertainment cinema, then they will love ‘Sunkesari’. But if they come with mentality of dread horror that will frighten and give fear panic to them, then they might not like ‘Sunkesari’.
Likewise, actress and producer of the cinema Reecha Sharma claims that they have not left any space for quality of ‘Sunkesari’. She says that they have filmed the cinema in high budget and good location and it is also a challenging project for her acting career.
