Interview with Ram Krishna Dhakal
Krishna Dhakal ( born July 23, 1974) is a famous modern, pop, playback singer, actor and reality show judge from Nepal. He was discovered at an early age by Arjun Pokwal. Ram Krishna Dakhal started his musical career early in his childhood when he covered popular songs by another prominent singer of Nepal, Narayan Gopal. During his early period, Dakhal struggled singing amongst his group but he soon broke out into national attention and ultimately established himself as one of the Nepalese artist.
He rose to fame with his song Orali lageko harin ko chhal bho As a small kid, he used to sing at social functions and events. People were impressed by his singing ability and voice (although not mature then). He modelled his singing style after Narayan Gopal; Dhakal acknowledges that he is a big fan of the late maestro. It would be fair to say that he benefited from the void left by Narayan Gopal's death. People were looking for some one to fill the void. In fact, they were looking for the next Narayan Gopal.
But he was able to make his album and be a popular singer because of his god father Gopal Karmacharya. He appeared in the movie Aashirbad in the lead role. It is said that the story of movie was based or inspired by his own personal story of struggle and his rise to fame. It was a successful film, partly aided by good music.
