REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, Sept 17: ‘Hum Jayega’, set to release on November 21, launched its poster on Tuesday at Mandala Theater, Anam Nagar, along with two songs from the film. A popular character in Darjeeling and Sikkim, Hum Jayega is a well known humorous personality whose real name was Dal Bahadur Gurung. He had also played a small role in ‘Kusume Rumal’ directed by Tulsi Ghimire.

Despite the film taking the name of Hum Jayega, the story is not based on the popular character, director Surendra Pun clarified. “We have included the name and his profession (that of a driver) in the film, but the rest is fiction. Just like Hum Jayega in Darjeeling was a fun and playful person, so is our protagonist in the film,” Surendra said.

She’s made peace with herself and takes pride in being ‘different’. People taking a second look at her from the corner of their eyes don’t bother her anymore.
