My debut movie title ‘Birkheylai Chinchhas’ (Can a common man be a hero?) relates to my struggles in life. The name ‘Birkhey’ is a common name among Nepalese and the movie talks about the common man’s fight in life. I am doing the same but my job is to entertain audiences and I am struggling to achieve that.

We all are on the run to earn money, but everyone knows we came into this world empty handed and leave likewise. This line from the song pierces through my heart… ‘मरे पछी तेरो खोजी हुँदैन, सेतो कात्रोमा हेर गोजी हुँदैन, याद राख, फैलाऊ प्रेमको जालो …’
