Sahana Bajracharya and Suraj Giri are back! The duo are currently running the call-in show NAMASTE on NTV PLUS everyday from 5PM-6.30PM. With the NAMASTE TV Show already approaching it’s fourth week, the show has had many guests including Malvika Subba, Rishi Dhamala and Rohit John Chettri. Whilst Sahana and Suraj only come together to host the show few times a week, they are joined individually by guests who co-host with either Sahana or Suraj. The hour and thirty minute long show provides the host and guest host plenty of time to talk to each other and callers from all over Nepal.
