“How Funny” director Sherpa no more

Nilu Doma Sherpa, a film director, who recently directed the film How Funny, passed away Saturday morning in Kathmandu. Reportedly, the cause of her death was a stroke. On Saturday morning, Nilu, who was found unconscious in her residence in Baluwatar, was taken to TU’s Teaching Hospital in Maharajgunj, where the director was pronounced dead.
