The photo of Nepali superstar Rajesh Hamal‘s girlfriend, Madhu Bhattarai, has finally been revealed in the media. After knowing each others for the last 7 years long, one of the most popular actors in the Nepali movie industry had managed to keep her a secret. It has been more than two years since he had publicly admitted about their affair but, nobody had been able to point out who she was until today.
It is a surprising revelation that Madhu wasn’t a ‘at home’ girl and she had also participated in beauty contests. In 2002 Madhu had participated in Megha Model Contest and again in 2004 she participated in Lux Beauty Star contest.
According to an online magazine, Rajesh Hamal and Madhu met during the Lux Beauty Star contest. Rajesh Hamal, who was the chief judge of the contest, was impressed by the talent of Madhu. Although Madhu could manage to get selected in top five out of 20, she couldn’t answer the question asked by Rajesh because of her nervousness. That was one of the reasons another participant, Priyanka Basnet, ended up winning the title. At the end of the contest, Rajesh Hamal gave her visiting card and they started communicating through email. Although Madhu had proposed in the beginning, Rajesh waited for six months before accepting the proposal.
