For this, I had started the journey for 20 years. I was disappointed many times but my enthusiasm for film making never waned. This award has given me more encouragement in film-making.’

The director of the film Bhimsen Lama said that the entire team of the film is responsible for this success. The film has story, script and dialogues by Sampada Malla and stars Gauri Malla, Mithila Sharma, Karma, Shilpa Mashke, Usha Rajak and Suvarna Thapa.
