Actress Reema Bishwokarma has donated Rs 100,000 to the Film Artistes Welfare Fund on 2nd October 2015. The amount was initially planned for her Honeymoon Trip to Maldives and Paris.
A newly married couple has decided to present the money to the fund instead of expensing it for the honeymoon trip. Reema Bishwokarma and Robert Lwagun tied the knot a week ago on September 27.
The fund, which was established to help the sick and financially weak members of the film fraternity, has Rs 30.4 million in the treasury at the moment.
The actress said “Robert and I decided to present the money to the Fund instead of using it for the honeymoon. If the Fund is helping six people, then I can help the seventh one. This is what inspired us to contribute.”
Meanwhile, Reema also expressed her dedication to continue working in films: “Just because I’m married now doesn’t mean I’m leaving the industry. I want to continue giving my best to the Nepali film industry.”
