Kathmandu, July 29 : With the lifting of the over four-month lockdown, the Nepali music industry has been trying to return to its old form. As soon as the government eased the lockdown, the new music videos started coming to the market. However, the film industry is still in a state of confusion, but the new songs and music are heating up its market. Whether it’s Teej – targeted songs, modern songs or folk and duet songs, all kinds of songs and music are now in vogue. Even the main stream film actors have been diverted to the music videos. Actors like Paul Shah, Dayahang Rai, Bipin Karki, Pradeep Khadka, Dilip Rayamajhi, and actress like Anchaal Sharma, Barsha Raut Swatima Khadka and Namrata Sapkota are now busy doing music videos these days. The financial situation of the actors is also deteriorating as the film industry has remained completely shut down due to the lockdown and many actors are also preparing to switch to music videos, said actress Barsha Siwakoti. In the meantime, to revive the music sector which was slackened by the COVID – 19, preparations for “Nepali Art, Culture and Music Award – 2020” have already begun. The Nepali Art, Culture and Music Award-2020 will be given to various genres of music with the objective of honouring the personalities of art, culture and music sectors in order to recuperate the Nepali music sector for over four months, and to add a new dimension in the music sector. The organising committee has stated that the award will be held in Kathmandu by next month. The registration of the Music Award application has been opened and it has been informed that the form will be filled by August 31. The award presented by Creative Insight Media will be managed by Shubhakamana Media Solutions Pvt. Chairman of the organising body Surya Chand, on the other hand, said that the award was being organised with the aim of reviving the sluggish music industry with the outbreak of coronavirus. When the music industry has opened, now everyone is eager to know as to when the Nepali film industry will resume.
