Anna Sharma & Anmol KC
A few Nepali tabloids reported in recent years that actor Anmol KC and Anna were in a romantic relationship and were dating as a couple, but Anmol and Anna have rejected the claims. Though they have appeared in many movie-promotional events together, they have stated that they are just very close friends. In a video interview given to a Nepali online media, Anmol says that as co-actors it’s natural for them to form a type of close bond, which doesn’t necessarily mean that they are in a romantic relationship.
When asked about Anmol KC in a 2015 interview, Anna said:
” I like boys for their personality and Anmol has a good personality. I was attracted to his personality since we first met. He respects other people and I like that.”
Apart from praising Anmol, she also offered a few pieces of advice to Anmol:
“He has good looks. He has good height. He has good acting skills too. Actually he is an overall package. I have watched his 2 movies, but would say that he still needs to work-out to improve his acting skills. I am not saying that he is a bad actor. He has to improve his dialogue skills in the movies. He has to pay attention while pronouncing Nepali words. And it seems that he doesn’t read books that much and I advise him to read as many books as possible.”
