Whether it is by virtue, or by definition, actresses do not have a screen life, as long as their male counterparts. It is a sad view, and also a confirmation for the most part; most actresses are rarely seen on screen after marriage. When saying this, it is not to say that all actresses have the same plight. Jharana Thapa, Arunima Lamsal and Rekha Thapa, among others have defied odds, and are seen in movies all the time. All three have maintained their physique, and Jharana even has a child.

It has been ten years since her first step in the movies, and she has not had to struggle to make her presence felt in Nepali movies. One of the reasons for that may be that she is married to the film producer, Chabi Ojha. Nonetheless, her own talent and personality cannot be discredited, as the number of films that she has worked in has reached, nearly a hundred.
Rekha Thapa is unique in the sense that she is not only an actor, but also a role model for many married and unmarried young women. Her courage and bravery, regarding the ability to work and do glamorous roles, without caring about the negative comments from the society is commendable.

Talking about glamorous roles, she has done numerous item numbers for films, among which Oye oye current laagcha malai choye became a big hit.
After just being here for a few years now, she has already started to produce films. Not every other actor has such guts and most importantly the money needed to take such a huge step. Rekha Thapa has her own production house and she is ruling it. She is producing a lot of movies and for good reasons or bad, they seem to be doing really good at the box office. Looks like Rekha Thapa is the queen of the beehive for now. She is controversies favorite child and she is the queen of many men’s heart.
The biggest of her films have been a milestone for her successful career graph. Movies of her like Himmat, dobaato, dui pal, gorkhaali, karmayoddha, kismet, mitini, priyatama were a box office hit. Her recent movie Hifajat was one of the biggest releases in the history of Nepali cinema. It released successfully on the first day in 42 theaters around the country, but it could not last long. This was not because of bad reviews or the dissatisfaction of the audience but because of some objections from a Hindu religious group. The objection was regarding her dress which was made up of the holy yellow color with prints that read Hare Ram, Hare Krishna. It is still surrounded by controversies and objections. Perhaps one of the biggest hits of her career will come to doom before it begins. But we still have to see of what the future has held for this movie.
She also won the best female actor award, in the 2067 National Film Awards for her performance in Himmat (2063). Despite being successful professionally, she has not been out of controversies. Her open minded attitude has led her to difficult situations, including not getting along with some of her co-actors. She has also been criticized for over exposure in films, and has not gained praise for her acting skills.

The recent movies of her also includes Kasley Choryo Mero Mann which she has produced by herself. There are a lot of other movies that was produced under her production house which were a massive hit out of the valley as well as in the valley.
Rekha Thapa is accused of being arrogant and not having a good rapport with her co stars. Reports of her cat fights are a regular in the film industry but then again she has the attitude not to talk about it. She is proud of what she is- a glam girl and flaunts it with pride. For this reason and more she is one of the most successful actresses the Nepali Film Industry has ever seen. Her success and demand can be judged on the basis of the amount she is offered for a movie. She is the highest paid actress in Nepal which says it all about how famous she is, regardless people who talk about her talent.
It is true that she has always been portrayed as a Glamor figure and that she is in much new because of this quality of hers. But we tend to forget in all these controversies and drama that she is really talented and is a committed actor. She has done everything from bungee jumping to martial arts in her movies which prove her loyalty towards her work. She says that if not an actress, she would have been an air hostess. Well, we are happy that she isn’t an air hostess. It is an honor to have at least one truly dedicated female actor in Nepal.
