Jassita Gurung to star in ‘Honey Bunny’


The Cinema Times, Kathmandu– Sara’s visa appeal got rejected by the UK embassy citing reasons of London overstay. This made the production search for an alternate actor and the team finalized Jassita Gurung. Anmol KC also left the cinema in the last hour.

Actor Jassita Gurung has signed a contract for ‘Honey Bunny’, a new Nepali cinema to be directed by Diwakar Bhattarai. Bhattarai met Jassita right after his arrival in London and signed her for the lead role. She had been in talks with the team and joined in after liking the character and story. The cinema is based on romantic genre and the team found Jassita suitable for the character.

Initially Anmol KC and Sara Shirpaili were finalized in the leads for ‘Honey Bunny’. The cinema was to be shot in London, but Sara’s visa appeal got rejected by the UK embassy citing reasons of London overstay. This made the production search for an alternate actor and the team finalized Jassita who had been staying in London. She has recently completed the shooting of I Am Twenty One.

Not only the female lead has been changed, Anmol KC also left the cinema in the last hour as the team was set to fly to London. The Honey Bunny team says they have finalized the lead male actor too and will officially announce it soon.
