The news of Miss Nepal 2017 Nikita Chandak‘s foray into Nepali cinema has definitely created a ripple online! It was shortly after the Nepali New Year when Chandak announced that she would be making her debut in the film RANI MAHAL. The film will see the Miss Nepal starring alongside Pritam Raj Senchuri. Pritam Raj mentions about how the project of RANI MAHAL happened suddenly but it is something he is “feeling excited” about.
I decided to shoot a QUICK random few questions to unpack Mr Senchuri and get to know him a little more before he bursts into the limelight!
