Pradhan maybe an unknown entity these days, but he is an artist who has already acted and worked in several popular Hindi movies, such as Safed Haati, Barsaat Ki Ek Raat, Gharwali Baharwali and Pukar, along with Nepali films mainly in the 80s & 90s, including Bansuri, Tilahri and Jhora among others.

Bonny Pradhan is a resident of Kurseong, but for the past few decades he had been living and working in the US, Mumbai and in Nepal.

Before leaving for America, he interacted with local reporters here. Pradhan informed that for the past several years, he also worked at a private company in Verginia, US as a cashier.

Sharing the reason for working in America, Pradhan said around six years ago, he made a Nepali film “Priyatama”, which was predominantly shot in Sikkim. However, the film had to be cancelled following threats and extortion calls from the Maovadi in Nepal. Following the debacle, Pradhan moved to the US and started working there. He also screened a Nepali documentary movie in the US, which led to the idea of making the two Nepali movies. On being asked why he wishes to shoot the two movies in the US, he said, “There are many Nepali people in the US, who are eager to show their talent. I am helping them get a platform to showcase their talent.”

“One of the movie is based on Lord Buddha and another is based on a Sherpa mountaineer, who conveys a message that mountaineers are not greedy for money and fame,” he added

He also emphasized that even though he had kept himself isolated from making films in the past six years he had never forgotten his friends and well wishers in Nepal and Mumbai. This is the reason, he had visited the two places frequently despite being in the US.
