A Nepali film based on the life-story of a senior singer and musician Bhaktaraj Acharya is underway at Prasant Rasailee's direction. Coincidently, Satyaraj Acharya, the eldest son of Bhaktaraj, has been proposed to play a hero of the film.
Because Satyaraj bears similar facial features to his father and knows a lot about his father, he has been chosen a hero for the film, said Nepali-origin Rosan Rai, producer, who is currently living in Sikhkhim, India, now, adding "The film will showcase a series of struggles in Bhaktaraj's life in his musical career."
The film will star around 86 new artists through audition in the capital. Talking about its musical sides, Bhaktaraj's hit numbers will be rearranged with slight changes. About 60 percent of the film's shooting will be done in Nepal with the rest in Sikhkhim, informed Rai.
