Rajesh Hamal – the yes-man superstar

rajesh-hamal The success story

Rajesh Hamal, also known as Mahanayak of Nepali film industry, started his career with the movie, Yug Dekhi Yug Samma, and till now he is ruling the industry, continuously.

For example: Sushil Chettri, Ramesh Upreti, Nikhil Upreti, and Saroj Khanal were considered to be candidate for the next superstar in Nepali film industry. But, their craze dwindled after a short time. At the same time, craze of Rajesh Hamal is still as huge as ever in Nepali movie industry.
