Namrata Shrestha (born 14 June, 1986) is a Nepali model, RJ, presenter and actress. She is known for her role in the romantic film Sano Sansar released in 2008 and her appearance in music videos. Before moving on to silver screen, she was involved in theater acts and modeling (since 1997). She has also appeared on the cover of Wave Magazine, VOW Magazine & other magazines. The Kathmandu Post, on it’s edition of February 21, 2005 mentioned Namrata as one of the top 5 models in Nepal. She has also been featured in Nepali Entertainment portal Cybersansar.com
Namrata Shrestha was born on June 14, 1986 at Dharan, Nepal to a middle-class Newari family. She finished her college education at KIST in Kathmandu, Nepal. She started her modelling career in 1997. She is an actress of Nepali movie Sano Sansar and Mero yeuta sathi chha.
She was in major medias of Nepal and a few international when a private video of her got leaked over the internet.
One of the blog (namratashrestha.blogspot.com) writes:
Namrata Shrestha is at the center of a huge controversy after her sex tape was leaked to the public. The most controversial aspect of this scandal, however, might be be the fact that Shrestha has shrugged the whole thing off instead of acting ashamed and apologetic.
The video co-starred Chris Sutula, aka “DJ Tantrik,” who happens to be married.
Some members of the Nepalese press believe Shrestha’s attitude towards her video reflects a change in Nepalese society and attitudes towards sex.
Shrestha’s attitude towards her tape is refreshing, (despite that tape revealing an ill-advised tryst with a married person) especially at a time when so many U.S. and Latin American celebrities feel the need to act shocked and embarrassed even as their careers soar after their involvement in a sex tape. Much of the American public’s reactions to these videos include a healthy dose of skepticism, especially when stars’ sexual exploits are leaked just as they are about to promote a new movie or reality series (we’re looking at you, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian), or when stars refuse to take responsibility for their involvement in a sex tape, a la Noelia, yet continue to discuss them, over and over and over, with the press.
Shrestha’s decision to take ownership for her actions and not be ashamed of the fact that, hey, she has sex (again, albeit with someone who was not single) might work to change perceptions about female sexuality in Nepal, especially given the case of Shrisha Karki, which revealed that women in the entertainment industry were victims of sexual exploitation rather than the keepers of their own sexuality.
People have sex. Women have sex. Sometimes, women have sex on tape. Yes, it is invasive and possibly embarrassing when evidence of this is shown to strangers, but that doesn’t make the fact that a woman had and enjoyed sex something shameful. Even if she might want to stick to taping herself with unmarried men in the future.
