Nepal Film Development Board Chair Nikita Poudel Resigns!

In a shocking and sudden move for the Nepali film industry, Nepal Film Development Board (FDB) Chairperson Nikita Poudel announced her resignation on February 05, 2019.

She issued a press statement informing about her decision with effect February 06, 2019.

The ex-FDB Chairperson expressed her gratitude for being introduced to the box-office tabulator for the first time in Nepali film industry history.

“I need my time for myself, so I will not be able to perform my duty wholeheartedly. So, if I stay in the position, I won’t be able to justify my professional work. Hence, I am resigning from the post,” reads Poudel’s press statement.

Background

In July 2018, the Nepal Government introduced the box office system to promote the country’s film sector. It was then that the Supreme Court reinstated Nikita Poudel as FDB Chair.

Poudel’s resignation comes at a time when Nepal is planning to extend the box office system beyond Kathmandu Valley.
