Nepali Film industry that is always creating some kind of buzz around its actors and actresses often misses out on crediting their off-screen heroes who create the on-screen magic with these stars.

A director of romantic comedy, Saurav has a different capacity. His movies connect to his audience the beauty of young urban romance like no others. Saurav who had also been a professional engineer claims filmmaking to be his passion and true calling.
Saurav made his debut from the rom-com Love Diaries. The movie featured celebrities Sushil Shrestha, Rubeena Thapa, and Bishwojit Rimal and is one of the blockbuster Nepali movies. The movie received immense love from the audience and made Saurav a rising director of Nepali filmdom.

While Saurav is juggling with piles of wonderful projects under his name today, the success did not come so easy to him.
Born in a family of teachers in Rajbiraj, Saurav hails from a very humble background that has no connection to the flim industry. And like many others from such background, he pursued engineering. But he was definitely not like many others. After Saurav completed his civil engineering, his passion to movies led him to Nepali film industry.
Recalling the days when he used to save pocket money and travel all the way from Satungal to Gopi Krishna cinema hall to watch movies, Saurav tells that his love for movies was always there.
In 2013, he started learning filmmaking and editing from various film directors and editors. While some appreciated his dedication and accepted his commitment, there were also many people who decided to close their doors to then struggling director. But he kept on working as an assistant director for many years working on different Nepali movies.
After struggling for eight years, he has finally succeeded to make a name for him in the industry. He developed his unique style by using technologies and imprinted his twist to movie making techniques which can be seen in his movie Love Diaries. He has been constantly evolving and making himself better in variety of genres. As Saurav is gearing up for his new releases, we are more than excited to see his work on screen again.
