Like previous years, the Holi celebration and birthday of Binod Manandhar was held successfully. The turnover in the ceremony was huge. Most of the personalities in Nepali film industry had participated in the non-commercial and fun-filled holi celebration at the Godavari home of Karishma Manandhar .
Karishma and Binod’s only daughter Kabita Manandhar couldn’t attend the celebration. But, she also participated by ordering a custom designed cake with a photo of herself and her father on top of it. Kabita and Binod saved the cake to cut after the formal Holi celebration ended.
Like earlier years, Holi 2014 at Karishma’s residence is going to be a grand ceremony.
All preparation is done and Karishma and Binod Manandhar are waiting for the guests to arrive. As the guests start to arrive at around 11 AM, celebration kicks off.
