Paramita RL Rana, Actor and Model

What is your idea of love?

My idea of love is putting someone else before yourself and prioritizing your relationship more than anything else. This is what I feel love is about. You have to not be selfish and put the person and their feelings before your own.

Saruk Tamrakar, Actor and Model

What is your idea of love?

I have never been in love so I don’t know what to say about what idea I have about love but it is something that you only feel for the special person in your life. It can come into your life at anytime and sweep you off your feet without your even realizing it.

Favorite date place in Kathmandu:

My favorite date place in Kathmandu has to be Zen Bistro, I love the ambiance there as I am a very outdoor person and also prefer peace and quiet. The food there is very good, too!

Go to scent for a date:

My go to scents for a date would be Dolce and Gabana Light Blue, ZARA Gold and Mont Blanc Legend.

Favorite romantic movie:

I prefer dark action movies but one romantic movie I really liked was Annie Hall by Woody Allen, it was funny, witty and romantic in Woody Allen’s style.

 

Parakram Rana, Stylist and Fashion Blogger

What is your idea of love?

My idea of love is to love each other like you would want to be loved, be it your peers, family or partner. When it comes to your partner, my idea of love is to give it your fullest and make the best out of it. Be sure you love the person, never get into a relationship when you aren’t fully sure that you want to be committed to him/her. That has saved me and many friends I know from disasters in the future. When you love it should be so true that the partner’s happiness will be of more value than your own happiness.

Favorite date place in Kathmandu:

Level 3 Terraces would be a nice place for a date as it has a nice vibe and great energy.

Go to scent for a date:

Dior Sauvage is my absolute favorite for any such occasion

Favorite romantic movie:

Call Me by Your Name has to be my recent favorite romantic movie. A must watch for all, I have my hopes high for it to win Oscar accolades, though it seems very likely.

Anoop Bikram Shahi, Actor

What is your idea of love?

Love is something that is just between two souls. It is the trust that you have in each other and the support that you provide each other. These are the two most important elements in a healthy relationship that will last a lifetime. But at the moment, the love of my life is my career.

Favorite date place in Kathmandu:

I don’t have any favorite date place in Kathmandu but I’d love to take my date to Rara or the Annapurna Base Camp. 

Go to scent for a date:

I am a cologne freak so there isn’t just one. So a few that I’d like to wear for a date would be Bleu de Chanel and Paco Robanne One Million.

Favorite romantic movie:

The movies I like watching are also similar to the ones that I act in so I mostly go for movies from the action genre with gangster vibes and dark humor.
