  3. Hi Brajesh jee, I’m one of your big fan. Particularly I am impressed on your acting and dialogue creation. You are one of mind-blowing actors. Wish you all the best in future too.

  4. आज mysansar ले मलाईपनि तपाईंको तिर डोर्यायो – धन हुनेलाई … मार्फत । सरर हेरें तपाईंको thought हरु राम्रो लाग्यो । हुन त तपाईंको लेखन, जसले relatively सानै उमेरमा नै राम्रो अनी प्रतिभाशाली पटकथाकारको नाम कमाएको थियो, राम्रो त हुने नै भयो ।
    नेपाली कला क्षेत्रका थोरै आदर्श व्यक्तित्व मध्य तपाईंपनि एक लाग्छ मलाई । अङ्रेजीमा पनि बहुतै राम्रो लेख्नुहुँदो रहेछ । तपाईं बहुआयामिक हुनुहुन्छ भन्ने पनि मलाई लाग्छ र तपाईं जस्ताले नेपाली कला जगतको लागि केही दिन सक्नु हुन्छ पनि । व्यक्तिगत रुपमा व्यस्त हुनुहोला तर मिडियामा नदेख्दा कहिलेकाँही हराउनु भये झैं लाग्छ ।

    तपाईंलाई नसुहाएको एउटा कुरा, तर मेरो दृष्‍टिकोणमा है, नेपाली तारा तपाईंले चलाएको चैं असुहाउँदो लाग्यो है, भलै तपाईंको प्रस्तुती आँफैमा राम्रो थियो । तर मुख्यत: सह-सन्चालिका सँग जोडी नमिलेको लाग्यो । कहाँ तपाईं अनी कहाँ उन्को व्यक्तित्व । माइन्ड नगर्नु होला – त्यसैले अली चिप जस्तो देखीएको जस्तो थियो है । भलै अन्य कुरामा, जस्तै: बिदेशी कार्यक्रम सँग दाँज्ने वा तामझामको कमिको कुरामा तपाईंको तर्कसँग सहमत छु ।

    जे होस् तपाईंको प्रगतीको कामना गर्छु, अझ उत्क्रिष्ट श्रीजनाहरु पस्किनु होला ।
    तपाईंको सुभेच्छुक
