Nepali film industry is to get a new actress, a very beautiful one – Miss Nepal 2012, Shristi Shrestha. The model who managed to be one of the top 20 in Miss World 2012, top 8 in Miss Beach Beauty, top 10 in Multimedia and top 10 in dancing skills in the Miss World competition, might bring in something new in the Nepali film industry.
When we talk about the history of Miss Nepal as actresses, none have actually been successful. The last Miss Nepal actress, Malina Joshi is struggling after the failure of her debut movie. Another miss Nepal, Malvika Subba wasn’t successful either. Although Jharana Bajracharya is the most successful actress among the ex-Miss Nepals, she hasn’t been able to leave any marks in the industry. With this history, Shristi’s journey to success as an actress is not going to be easy. Actress Rekha Thapa was one of the contestants of Miss Nepal 1990, but she didn’t win any titles.
