Bollywood Star Spends Honeymoon in Finland's Forests

Famed Bollywood star Manisha Koirala has ventured into Finland's forests for her honeymoon. Koirala, who is part of a powerful Nepalese political family, says she's impressed by Finland's nature.

Koirala's wedding in Nepal last month was a boisterous affair attended by numerous guests from the business, political and entertainment worlds.

She and her new husband, businessman Samrat Dahal, decided to change the pace with a relaxing honeymoon in Sievi, central Finland. Koirala says she jumped on board when her husband suggested Finland as a honeymoon destination.

"I said, 'Yeah, why not?'. Something new, something different. I am really enjoying every bit," says Koirala.

The couple is taking advantage of the Finnish outdoors by canoeing, rambling in forests, and taking sauna.

Koirala is a member of a well-known Nepalese political family. Her grandfather and great uncles served as prime minister, and her father was a minister. Her aunt, Sujata Koirala, is Nepal’s current foreign minister and travelled to Finland last spring.

Manisha Koirala has worked as a Bollywood actress for around twenty years. Now she is also a UN goodwill ambassador working to improve the status of women and children in Nepal. She says change takes time.

"It's going take awhile. It's a long battle, but at least there many people working, and I'll be one of them."

The couple will make their home in Katmandu.

Thursday's papers: What will Russia do next? Child safety checks ignored, and the Finnish economy's "lost year"

The poignant scenes of the return to Holland of the bodies of the victims of flight MH-17 dominate Finland's press this morning. Alongside the reports on the latest diplomatic moves to try and secure Russian co-operation over the Ukraine crisis, some papers take a moment to revisit Finland's recent run-ins with its eastern neighbour, and explore the worst-case scenario should Russia's economy crash. Elsewhere, papers reveal a widespread lack of background checks on those working with children, and an overview of Finland's economic outlook makes bleak reading.
