Star Cast of ‘Chaunauti’
The movie ‘Chunauti’ was made in the time before Saroj Khanal went to the USA. Khanal was considered the actor with the most potential to be the next superstar in the film industry. After about two decades in the USA Khanal has returned back to Nepal a couple of years ago. He is also featured in some movies. But, his craze has already diminished these days. The loss of another lead actor Shree Krishna Shrestha, two years ago is a huge loss to the film industry. Actress Bipana Thapa had also left the film industry when she married an Indian national. After marrying she left the film industry and is living as a house wife in India.
The director Naresh Poudel was a well known director and film producer of his time. He had also teamed up with Chhabi Raj Ojha to produce some of the successful movies in the past. These days, Naresh Poudel is not active in the film industry.
