Director Deepak Rayamajhi dies at 58 (Photo Update)

58 year old director of Nepali movie industry, Deepak Rayamajhi, has died of heart failure, yesterday in Gangalal Hospital. He was rushed to hospital after the heart attack, where he died at around 12:30AM. His last ritual was conducted in the morning in Pashupati Aryaghat amongst various personals of Nepali movie industry.

After receiving master’s degree in film direction from Russia, he directed his first movie “Bhagya Rekha” in late 1980s. Some of the movies he had directed include Yug dekhi Yug Samma (‘s first movie), Pryasi, Parai Gjhar and others.

Rayamajhi’s father, ex-minister, Keshar Jung Rayamajhi, is also alive and in his family he had wife and two daughters. Rayamajhi was planning to visit Australia for the screening of Destination Kathmandu by the end of the year. Before that, he also had plans to marry his younger daughter.

He died before the start of the shooting of his next project Made in Nepal. Apart from Destination Kathmandu two other movies , Love story 2066, and Chadai Aau Hai, are finished and are waiting to be released.

It is a great loss to the Nepali movie industry to loose such a talented director. We wish the Deepak’s soul will rest in peace!

Two of his movies, Pooja and Hamro Milan Khile Hunchha were posted previously in the movie blog.

The exact cause of the death of Deepak Rayamajhi is being debated on. Although, he was told to have died because of heart failure, some news media have have a different story to tell. It is rumored that he got critically injured after falling from top of his home and later died in hospital. Some say that his Russian wife, with whom he has a son, had arrived in Kathmandu after 30 years and Rayamajhi had a family dispute before the incident happened.

It is to be noted that the family members haven’t given an exact cause of his death and he was cremated in a hurry without conducting any formal ceremony.
