I don’t want to kill excitement of watching movie by revealing the plot.
The nationality of the movie based on the life of Nepali Bhajanshiromani Bhakta Raj Acharya is being disputed based on it’s submission to a film festival in India as an Indian movie.
Satya Raj Acharya, a singer and son of Bhajan Shiromadi, Bhakta Raj Acharya, is going to act in a movie named "Acharya". The movie is based on the life of Bhakta Raj and Satya will act in his fatherâ€™s role. Satya Raj got the lead role as his face resembles his fatherâ€™s and he also knows his father better than anyone else.
