Actress Samragyee RL Shah is currently in Australia for the premier of her second movie, ‘A Mero Hajur 2’ with the director and producer of the movie, Jharana Thapa. The red attire Samragyee wore in the premier of the show made news for it boldness. Samragyee has also recently shared some swimsuit poses. The bikini avatar is probably the first such pose of the actress.
The high-rated actress of the current time, Samragyee is also one of the highest paid actress in the film industry. Samragyee was reportedly paid Rs. 500,000 for the role she did in her second movie ‘A Mero Hajur 2’. Recently she was reportedly paid twice that amount in her upcoming movie with Aryan Sigdel. Although Samragyee refused to confirm or deny the amount, she had confirmed she was considering doing the movie. Samragyee debuted in Bhuwan KC’s movie ‘Dreams’ opposite to Anmol KC. After the success of the movie, she has established herself as one of the most sought after actress in the film industry.

Currently Samragyee is travelling in various citites in Australia including Sydney, Tasmania, Brisbane, and Melbourne.
Actress Sushma Karki’s main talent is to show off her body. She is not known to be a good actress but, for skin show, nobody can beat her. Sushma is popular for being bold and scandalous rather than her movies and roles. The item dance in popular movie ‘Loot’ established Sushma in the film industry as an item girl. After that, she was featured in some hot movies like ‘Bandaas’ and ‘Bindaas 2’. Other movies she was featured as an actress didn’t do well in box office.
These days, Sushma is not active in movies or modelling shots. The film producers are not willing to invest on Sushma anymore. But, she is still bold and beautiful. Recently she posed in swimsuit in a five-star hotel’s swimming pool. The photos were popular in various online media. Featured in red bikini, she has posed in various poses. She had done similar photo shots in the past. Here are some of the current and previous photos for comparison.
Now and then: Suhsma Karki poses at the side of the swimming pool with her right leg bent and the left leg straight, in the water.

Update on 2017/11/22 Bikini round video in Miss Universe 2017. Nagma fell down while exiting the stage. But, she recovered instantly (see the video clip at the end of the following video). More details posted here.
We don’t have bikini round in Miss Nepal. In the history of beauty contests, the only beauty contest to ever have a swimsuit round was Miss Kathmandu 2017 (Read more about Miss Kathmandu 2017 here). Not having such contest at home and participating in international beauty contest has a certain disadvantage. For example, the current Miss Asia Pacific Nepal, Sahara Basnet, wore bikini for the first time in Philippines, in the finale of Miss Asia Pacific International 2017. It is anybody’s guess how the self-consicous beauty might have performed at the contest.
I think, it is time to re-think the decision not to have bikini round in Miss Nepal. They should have the round just to prepare themselves for the international arena they will have to compete in.
Sahara Basnet bikini experience
The following text is what Sahara wrote about her experience in the swimsuit. In summary:
- Sahara has always been a shy and introvert girl
- Sahara had never worn a bikini before.
- While wearing bikini itself was awkward for her, doing a photoshoot in one was the thing she had never thought about. Doing bikini photoshoot and walking wearing them was not easy for her. (That was done in the finale of an international beauty contest)
Such experience is not something a representative of the whole country should have. She should have been prepared for everything including the bikini rounds.
The organizers should learn from the experiences of the participants and prepare themselves for those surprises. Even if there was no bikini round in Miss Nepal beauty contest, Sahara had enough time to practice wearing bikini at home and prepare herself to be comfortable in it.
Although there is no bikini round in Miss Nepal beauty contest, the winners of the contest have to wear them when they participate in international beauty contests. Earlier, I talked about bikini rounds in Miss Nepal, now it is time to talk about the bikini rounds in Miss Nepal Earth, the runner-ups of Miss Nepal contest. As of 2017, there were 14 Nepali representatives to the contest.
I have collected the bikini photos of all the contestants from 2009 to 2017 and searching the remaining photos. I will update the post as soon as I find their photos. For now, here are bikini photos of most of the contestants from Nepal in Miss Earth from Miss Earth 2009 to Miss Earth 2017:

I have talked about Rojina in my previous post. Here are more bikini photos of Rojina Shrestha.

A beauty contest has broken the unwritten rule in Nepali entertainment industry – no swimsuit or bikini round in beauty contest. The contest titled Miss Kathmandu organized a swimsuit round for Miss Best Figure title. The photos and the details of the contest was however kept a secret among the organizers and the contestant. The only photo I could find of the contest is the one published in Kantipur’s Saptahik. The Facebook page of the contest doesn’t even mention the Best Figure contest.

The finale of the contest was held on Monday, November 6, 2017 in Hotel Malla, Lainchour, Kathmandu. The crown was awarded to Angel Khati out of the 11 contestants. The first runner up was Sarita Tamang, and second runner up Anisha Lama. The details of the
The Miss Earth Nepal 2017, Rojina Shrestha, is currently participating Miss Earth beauty contest held in Philippines. The first runner up of Miss Nepal 2017 went to Philippines on October 7 and is preparing herself for the finale to be held on November 4. As a part of the contest, Shrestha posed in two-piece bikini recently. Here are some of the photos of the Nepali model in the contest.
The bikini round of the contest was held during the press presentation held at Diamond Hotel. Although Miss World, has removed bikini rounds a few years ago, Miss Earth continues to include bikini round it its competition.
Every international beauty contests have a swimsuit round and the swimsuit poses of beauty contest winners and models are not rare poses. But, after Miss World scraped the swimsuit round, the swimsuit poses of Miss Nepal winners have become rare. I haven’t found any swimsuit photos of any Miss Nepal after 2013. In a latest photo shared by Asmi Shrestha from Thailand, she is wearing a swim suit. But, the photo is not clear and the photo only shows her back. Yes, it is not a proper swimsuit photo but, that is the only one she has shared so far.
In another photo Asmi is seen wearing a jeans shorts with black top and holding a beer on a beach.

I have collected rare bikini photos and videos of most of the Miss Nepal and prepared a video. After preparing the video I am sharing additional photos of the Miss Nepal.
Watch the UPDATED video
Let me start with the first Miss Nepal 1994 – Ruby Rana
Ruby Rana participated in Miss Asia Pacific beauty contest, held in Philippines. Here is a photo of Ruby catwalk in her red bikini is included in the video
Now it is clear that actress Sushma Karki wasn’t happy by her relationship with her ex, Niran Shrestha. She has admitted, Niran was too much possessive and wouldn’t let her be herself – the hot and sexy actress. That was the reason Sushma believed her affair ruined her career.
After the break-up, Sushma has felt the freedom in wearing the revealing dresses and sharing hot photos in media. A while ago she went to an even in a flimsy black dress and made news. Before that, she had shared some photos of herself in bikini. In addition to these personal photos, she had also modeled in controversial music videos and magazines.
UPDATE: More photos added at the end.
Nepali beauty Samriddhi Rai who represented Nepal in the Miss Tourism Queen International 2011 held in China, was successful in winning a Miss Personality title.
Although, it might not be a greatest feat for others, for Nepal it is no less than winning the contest title. That is because, in most of the contests Nepali models participate, they don’t win anything and none have won a contest title till date. So, we should congratulate Samriddhi for making us proud by bringing in something.
Yes, she looked gorgeous in blue bikini!!
She also looked great in a dhaka skirt in the National Custom Round:
Anupama Aura Gurung is the first runner-up of Miss Nepal 2011. Anupama represents Nepal in Miss Earth 2011 to be held in Manila, Philippines on December 3, 2011. The beauty contest was supposed to be held in Thailand but a flood caused the event to be moved to Manila.
Anupama, a daughter of a Gorkha army in Singapore, lived there until she turned 21. Here are some bikini shots of Anupama.
Here are some of the bikini shots in Miss Earth:
Rupa Upadhyay is a hot model and actress. Having seen a lot of bikini shots, I was pleasantly surprised to see how beautiful she looks in a traditional Nepali attire.
Don’t you think so?
She looks absolutely gorgeous. She looks great in her bikini shots too but I think, the beauty is enhanced in the traditional dress.
Go ahead, compare the decent sari-clad Rupa with the following pics:
She helped Nepal in being one of the Top 15 in Miss Asia Pacific 2011!
The beauty with brains, Sahana Bajracharya, couldn’t rise above the Top 15 in the Miss Asia Pacific 2011. Given no major successes of Nepali beauties in the history of international beauty contests, that is a okay … and warrants for a big “congratulation!”
Shahana told that she had enjoyed the contest and the photo says it all.
Oh How much i enjoyed being on stage .. Bikini Round!
lowing photo of the Miss India and Shahana says it all … they sure did have fun!
I love the way Shahana choose to tell it to present her *hot* bikini photo:
Its not what you wear that matters. People should look at YOU and not what you Wear… Oh dear country men, get over the bikini taboo please…
More bikini photos (to get you over “the bikini taboo” :)
