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