Shot wholly in Sydney, Sunkesari (with English subtitles) is all set to release in Nepal and Australia on 25 May 2018.

Directed by Arpan Thapa Sunkesari tells the story of an Australian palace constructed around 1880 AD and how it is converted into a boutique hotel and the strange tale of the supernatural beings that live among the hotel’s corridors.


Lauren is excited about it and told SAT, “It was fun, fast-paced, long hours and night shifts. I had a great time.”

I love new cultures,” she said.


The Sunkesari team had today assembled at the Nirankar Restaurant, city for the launch of the movie’s trailer. The horror movie was shot continuous for 19 days. Lauren is now busy shooting for an Aussie movie ‘Outback’ produced by In The Thicket.

The producer of Sunkesari, Bhim spoke about the journey of the films making and the challenges it posed.
