Contemporary younger artist Shupla


While watching his Junu-Avatar in 'Boksi Ko Ghar', Shupala thought- Let's go back to that old PeopleBot and play rote-taping like that. The scene in the film where she is getting married and has to bid farewell to her crying mother brought Shupala back to the village of Kavre-Roshi, where she spent some of her golden childhood days. In the film, Shupala plays the role of a young bride. Marrying a mustached man at the age of 9, becoming a daughter-in-law has taken her life from one angle to another. However, he does not understand the meaning of marriage and its social implications. The desire of a mother who wants to keep her little daughter in her arms has been crushed. She is swimming in a deep lake of pain.

After the wedding, the bride's 'junge-dai' treats Junu as a wife. Then the question arises in his mind, 'Why doesn't Junge Dai love me?' His mother says, 'Now he always loves you the same way.'

After marriage school leaves, akashe shirt and blue frock leaves, friends leave, lukidum leaves, kharlyangkhutti, kapi-kitab-kamal all leaves. When a girl suddenly gets involved in domestic affairs, her entire childhood is lost. His romantic dream of becoming a journalist goes far away, beautiful evenings and nights with his mother are missed.

The story of Junu's life changes, life enters - primitive sorrows, big doko-gagri, red dhoti, tilhari, chura-poto and the torture of 'junge-dai'. However, Shupala is greedy for Junu-Jiwan because the role she played in the film was just a 'role' for her. Those days of shooting seem to him like those earlier days of fun and playing with dear friends in school. She learned things she had never learned before during the shooting of that film - like, camera face, take, cut, action etc.! Shupla wearing a red T-shirt on her forehead on the day of Matatirtha Aunsi remembers those days of shooting, "I met new relatives, new friends in the village."

However, time is a wheel, even if she wanted to, she could not go back to those days of shooting-time i.e. 3 years ago.

Just two days ago Shupala celebrated her 13th year entrance birthday. Happy with people's wishes, his yesterday-evening and the days after the release of 'Boksi Ko Ghar' have changed completely. Like before the release of the film, she used to go to school and return home. And the same routine was repeated. Now she not only attends school-home, but also gives interviews on podcasts and television. Fans are found on the way to his school where he lives in Dhapasi. He says, 'Ammai kanti kanti ahing nee Shupla.' His friend Preeti danced to the top-song of 'Boksi Ko Ghar' 'Buzhin Maine, Buzhaideu Kuri' in the class. Friends cried after watching the movie. His reaction was, "How could a friend who was sitting on the bench act like this?"

The principal and all his friends from JB School, Budhanilkanth, where Shupla studied, went to the cinema to watch his first film. She studies 8th standard. The teacher-friends said - 'Very good, do better.' In this way, suddenly people are 'responding' and appreciating themselves, and Shupala's confidence in acting has increased.


A month before the premiere of 'Boksi Ko Ghar', she was so excited that she was breaking her finger everyday. The same village came to him in his dream the night before the premiere. And then came that Junu-Nivas i.e. Peepal Bot, where Shupala acted in front of the camera for a month. A tea shop opened in front of that lone Peepal plant of Ekanta, tied in a red and white saree, seen in the film in Shupla's dream. In his dream, people were sitting around Peepal-Chautari and drinking tea. "It's been a long time, did you have such a dream that the Peepal-Bot is not the same?," says Shupala. And, while watching the premiere, she kept saying, 'Tyo Junu Ma Hayon Ki' in every scene. Shupla sounded mature.


While studying in class 4, 3 years ago she took a month off from school and went to the shooting, and Shupla has a very vivid memory of that time. How will the first day of shooting be? What does the director say? How much tech will be eaten? Who are the children of the film? Such questions were with that girl. She remembers those days very well - Shupla used to act, dance, and listen to ghost stories in the village.

There is a taping in the Peopleboat, where Junu is sitting in a white-red saree. An entire night was spent shooting that scene. The shooting started from 7 pm and continued till 7 am. In that scene, water had to be poured over Junu's body. After the winter, during the shooting period, she was lying on the side of the fire. Why was it difficult for him in that scene? In the afternoon, he could not climb a tall ladder and his hand was burnt "when he grabbed a weed instead of grabbing grass". But, when I remember now, it was acting-joy for him. She had never worn a saree before the

shoot. At that time, it was very fun to become a 'bride'. She says, "When I wore a saree, I felt like I was dancing there." In the film, Junu says to Ravi, a child who is returning to the village after years, "I am studying life." There are not only pains in life, but also sweet pains. If I had not met you, I would have been castigated, I would have met, I read something new today.'

There is another magnificent dialogue in which Junu speaks, 'I am not afraid of the night, but I am afraid of those brains, which wake up with the demons that wake up with the night.' Shupala rehearsed with other child actors found in the village. "That rehearsal brought her closer to her new friends, it was a lot of fun," says Shupla.

According to Shupala, acting is like our daily activities. "The kind of work-activities we do every day, that is acting before the camera," she says, "Acting is acting the way people live."

Some superstitions have been removed from his mind after playing this film. She found out that one should not call a witch and people call some women witches to hide their mistakes. She also got to know the other side of the society - this society is very superstitious. ``If you make films and write poems to spread public awareness, you can remove that superstition,'' says Shupla.


Shupala's father is famous film and drama actor Bholaraj Sapkota. He used to take his daughter to the theater to watch plays, and also used to take him to film shootings. Shupala had earlier acted in a music video – Oilio Phool Ko Thongo. Bholaraj says about her daughter's habits and desires, "Perhaps her daughter is used to watching dramas and films from an early age, so she became interested in acting." Acting means acting. For example, even though she was lying in bed with a fever, she would get up and go to school if she had to perform a play on the parent's day of the school. She is easy-going, she does everything by asking us.'

She used to draw in her notebook after saying, 'There is a drama going on at school' - it is Shupla's nature to write scenes and think about them. Shupla loves his father's play 'Hamlet', 'Colder than Snow'. He had memorized the dialogue "colder than snow" with Karnali-Lobaj.

Shupla is interested in singing, also in dancing. She participates in the school dance competition. When she is alone at home, she looks at the mirror, wears a saree and keeps talking with many gestures.

In Bholaraj's understanding, acting is not just about doing well, it is suffering and not earning. He says, 'That's why I thought that my daughter would not have come into acting, but after watching this film, I now feel that her interest is a big dream for us.'

In the audition of 'Boksi Ko Ghar', Shupala recited a poem she had read in the class book-

She is prettier than June, prettier than flowers

The most beautiful is this mother of ours

We have made her milk hot and hot

There is no deceit in her

Let's do a good job to please mother

Bunch- Shupala, who was selected for the film after reciting a jam

poem, was told 'I will become a doctor in the future' before playing the film. However, his next choice is acting.

Shoupala means - auspicious moment. Children have a heart as sweet as the water of a river. I will study acting after SEE. I will move forward in drama and film,” she says.
