Well known writer Buddhisagar wrote in Twitter – “This week three young women of the new generation impressed me big time. Shova Sharma in writing, Rojisha Shahi in acting, Palsang Lama in music. Best wishes for the new heights.” (that was my rough translation of the Nepali text, attached at the end.)
In that list, I would like to add one more beauty – the Miss Nepal 2017, Nikita Chandak. I believe, she represent a whole new community and a diversion from the Kathmandu-centric Miss Nepal of the past. Let me introduce these four young women:
I know Rojisha Shahi:
- A new height in the film industry (height in literal sense, she sure is tall)
- Intelligent (it takes some of that to win the Miss Nepal Earth 2013 title) and
- A new promising actress who debuted in Richa Sharma’s movie ‘Aadha Love’. One more promising movie of the actress ‘Gangster Blues’ is coming soon. ‘Gangster Blues’ is the movie by superhit director of ‘Jerryy’ and ‘Hostel’, Hemraj BC. The actress of ‘Jerryy’, Anna Sharma is also making comeback in the movie.

A professional model, Nikita Chandak, was crowned Miss Nepal 2017 in an event held on June 2 2017. There had been some online rumours that “Nikita doesn’t look like Nepali” or “she is an Indian.” But in reality, she is a hundred percent Nepali. Even before the finale, I thought she was the most suitable candidate to be crowned Miss Nepal. That was the reason I prepared her biography and told she was “deserving candidate.”
Why did I think Nikita Chandak was the most suitable candidate to be crowned Miss Nepal?
On analyzing the 19 contestants, I had guessed either Nikita Chandak or Niti Shah to be crowned Miss Nepal. That was why I prepared the biography videos of those two contestants. My guess was right, Nikita was crowned and Niti was crowned the Miss Nepal International.
My guess was not a mere guess – it was a “calculated guess”. I had evaluated their background and their personality and the strength of their desire to become Miss Nepal. A few days before the contest, Miss Nepal 2016, Asmi Shrestha, had expressed that Nikita Chandak stood out in a fashion show held in Kathmandu. When I looked at her background and personality, she seem to give off the confidence and the personality a Miss Nepal needs.
Watch the introduction video of Nikita Chandak (I prepared it before she was crowned!)
