One of the best things for a cinephile during the end of a year is watching various roundtables featuring actors, actresses, directors, writers, etc. It gives them an insight into the films of that particular year through the eyes of the people who were involved in making them. That’s a great thing. But unfortunately, we don’t have such roundtables here in Nepal – well, there have been few but they are not exactly very regular.
Good thing, a YouTube channel called ‘And That Channel’ has come up with an actress roundtable featuring Reecha Sharma, Priyanka Karki and Keki Adhikari. It is called a roundtable; but it isn’t literally one as the attendees are sitting on couches with a rectangular table in the center. The setting doesn’t really give this episode the feel of a roundtable – but apart from that, everything else does.
Anyway, the three actresses talk about the films in year 2074 BS, women’s participation in the industry, weird fan encounters, harassment at workplace, among other topics. The episode is facilitated by two screenwriters Shan Basnyat and Bijaya Adhikari. Watch it here.
Hopefully, there would be some more of such roundtables.
