Namrata Shrestha is the most prolific Nepali Actor of this Generation. She debuted with Alok Nembang’s Sano Sansar in 2008, which was a watershed moment in the Nepali movie industry, ushering in the era of digital cinema and modern urban storytelling.
Since then she went on to receive commercial and critical success with movies like Mero Euta Saathi Chha (2009), Miss U (2012), Chhadke (2012), Maun (2013), November Rain (2014), Megha (2014), Tandav (2014), Sambodhan (2014), Soul Sister (2015), Classic (2016), Homework (2016) and Parva (2017). Mero Euta Saathi Chha and November Rain remain benchmarks in Nepali cinema for box office collections.
Ms. Shrestha has received numerous awards for her various character roles through the years. However, her role in the movie Classic (2016), marked the apex of her still-growing silver-screen career, having secured each and every award in the best female actor category that year, including the National Award, which was personally bestowed upon her by the President of Nepal.
