New Nepal map

KATHMANDU, June 2: Popular Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala has arrived in Kathmandu on Tuesday.

The 49-year-old Nepali actress entered Nepal through Belhiya of Rupandehi district as all the international flights remain suspended until June 27 due to the nationwide lockdown enforced to control the COVID-19 pandemic.

It has been learned that she has arrived in Nepal with her family.

She, along with her family, underwent a health screening before entering Nepal through Belhiya, said Rupandehi Chief District Officer Mahadev Pantha.

Koirala was trolled by Indian media after she took to the twitter to show support to Nepal’s landmark move to release its Nepal administrative map that incorporates the encroached lands of Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhrua.

But, the daughter of Prakash Koirala and granddaughter of former Prime Minister Bishweshwar Prasad Koirala has earned a huge respect from Nepali people.
