The internet including the major websites like Wikipedia and IMDB are mistaken on the star cast of the movie. They have written the name of Danny Denzongpa instead of Sunil Thapa. Thapa is one of the most popular actors of Nepal and has mostly seen playing negative roles. He started his acting career with a bollywood movie Ek Duuje Ke Liye in 1981 with Kamal Haasan and Rati Agnihotri in the lead. He later acted in Shahi Bahadur, Aaj Ki Aawaj, Manav Hatya and more than a dozen of other bollywood movies. He was called to Kathmandu in 1991 to play the role of Raatey Kaila in a movie called Chino which is one of the all time blockbuster Nepali movies ever and ran for 75 weeks at the theaters. He then stayed in the Nepali Film Industry and after a very long gap he is back in bollywood again. It seems like bollywood will take time to recognize him again and it might be after the release of the movie which is set to open on September 5.
