Personal life[edit]

A survey conducted by Kantipur Saptahik in February 2016 ranked Karki as the most attractive woman in Nepal.[4]

Commercial and critical success (2013–present)[edit]

Prime Minister Sushil Koirala with Karki after her winning NFDC National Film Awards 2071, Best Actor (Female)

Director Khanal cast Karki in Jholay opposite Dayahang Rai, where she plays the character of a prostitute. Jholay grossed over 10 million at the box office.[5] Her next big release then was Bikash Acharya's Nai Nabannu La 2 opposite Suraj Singh Thakuri. Nai Na Bhannu La was declared the biggest block-buster of the year 2070 grossing over 40 million.[6]

Karki's performances in Jholay and Nai Na Bhannu La 2 earned her the Online Filmykhabar Award as Best Actress 2017,[7] NETFA award for Best Actor in a supporting role (Female)., INFA award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female) and INFA Most Popular Actor (Female)

Karki's next release Aawaran did not perform similar to the previous movies at the box office. Although not a commercial success, this movie launched Karki as a singer in the Nepalese music industry. Karki went on to sing the OST of Aawaran in collaboration with Yama Buddha.[8]

Karki's Suntali was officially selected to premier at the 19th Busan International Film Festival under the category 'A Window on Asian Cinema' which was held in South Korea's Busan, from 2 October until 11 October 2014. Suntali's world premiere was held on the fifth day of the festival. Suntali released February 2015 and although it wasn't a big success commercially, Karki's work was immensely praised as she won the Best Actor (Female) at the National Film Critics Award (NFCA) and the NFDC National Film Awards 2071.[citation needed]

In 2015, Karki starred as Mala in the horror/thriller film Mala. Mala, a widow, with long black hair and a white saree who is seen throughout the film but speaks only a word. At the recent NFDC National Film Awards 2017, the Jury award was conferred to director Sudip Singh Bhusal for 'Mala'.[citation needed]

In 2016, Karki was seen as 'Ani' in the fourth installment of the Nai Na Bhannu La series. Nai Na bhannu La 4 grossed over 20 million in its first week of release.[9] Soon after, Karki portrayed a female detective opposite Keki Adhikari in the comedy movie 'How Funny'. Karki's next releases were Chakka Panja and Purano Dunga.

Music career[edit]

Karki recorded Bachchu Kailash's classic "Timi le ta Hoina" in her voice and released a very simple video for it.[10] Karki also collaborated with YouTube performer Nattu Shah and recorded a cover version of Jason Mraz and Colbie Calliot's 'Lucky'. The cute video got a lot of appreciation.[11] Karki's debut single "Swatantra", which is about freedom, liberation and independence released on 1 January 2016.
