KATHMANDU: A short film ‘Hundi’ has been made to spread public awareness against the hundi business.

The short film directed by media personality duo Madan Krishna Shrestha and Haribansha Acharaya, the duo known as Maha Jodi, shows the plight of people deceived in course of engaging in Hundi business.

The film was made to spread awareness about financial security under the Community-Police Partnership Program. The 41-minute film has been edited by Bhupendra Adhikar.

Similarly, cinematographers Gokul Adhikari and Ram Sharan Upreti have worked on the film. The film stars Haribansh Acharya, Sabin Shrestha, Anu Shah, Kiran KC, Kiran Tuladhar and Priya Rijal, among others.

Hundi operators are arrested in Nepal time and again. Hundi transaction is the fraudulent act of transferring money from one place to another by evading formal financial channels.

The money earned by Nepali migrants abroad has contributed significantly to the economy when it is sent home by paying a certain service fee through a bank or a remittance company. However, illegal acts of sending remittances home via Hundi business have increased — hampering the national economy and government revenue.

Informal Hundi businesses have hit the economy hard and the film aims to raise public awareness against this illegal act.
