KATHMANDU, June 22: One of Nepal´s most famous public figures Haribansha Acharya is hitched, again.
Acharya tied the nuptial knot for the second time Thursday evening with Ramila Pathak at a simple ceremony where close family members and friends participated.
Acharya who lost his wife Meera Acharya in April last year, got married with Ramila, a single mother of a 21-year-old son whose husband died 10 years ago in an accident.
“I am starting new innings in life,” one of the attendees quoted Acharya as saying. “I am very happy.”
The short wedding rituals were held at the residence of the bride´s sister at Gongabu in Kathmandu in the presence of a very few members of the families and close friends. “It was a very simple function where the bride and groom exchanged marital vows,” one of the participants told Republica.
Fifty five-year-old Acharya, who got married to his first wife 30 years ago, has two sons Mohit Acharya and Trilok Acharya.
A part of the famous comedian-duo Ma-Ha (short for Madan Krishna Shrestha and Hari Bansha Acharya), Acharya has made his mark as one of the most loved artistes in Nepal´s history.
