Many of the films acted by actor Anup Bikram Shahi have failed commercially at box office. But still he is one of the busiest and demandable actors in the industry. Good height, attractive body figure, chocolaty looks and brilliant acting skill have helped Anup to win the heart of Nepali hall goers. Although failed in the role of protagonist, audiences have admired the negative character of Anup in films and have given him a tag of ‘Handsome Villian’.
Acted in movies like ‘Thamel Dotcom’, ‘Mero Maya Timilai’, ‘King’, ‘How Funny’, and ‘Hansiya’, ‘Bir Bikram’, Anup’s two films ‘Kamale Ko Bihe’ and ‘Jaalo Returns’ probably will hit silver screens this year.
At a time when many handsome Nepali cinema hunks have no films in their pocket and are playing in music videos for existence in entertainment world, Anup has around half dozen films in his hands including ‘Birangana’, ‘Kri’, ‘Hurrah’ and ‘Nisaaf’. In much talked film ‘Kri’ Anup has played the role of villain. What a combination made by director of ‘Kri’- handsome hero Anmol KC Vs handsome villain Anup Bikram Shahi.
Anup fans have also blamed him for choosing movies randomly just to increase the quantity and not working on improving his quality of presentation. To rise as star quality is must, so surely in the days to come Anup will heed seriously the criticism made by his well wishers.
