Everybody knows Rekha Thapa is the topmost actress in Nepali movie industry. She is beautiful, hot, frank and businesslike. But, little known is the fact that she couldn’t win Miss Nepal 1999 contest. Rekha could only be selected as far as being the 14 finalist in the contest, but she couldn’t win any title.
Before her participation in Miss Nepal, in a local level contest, Miss Koshi Pagent, Rekha was awarded Miss Catwalk title. At that time, Rekha was sent to Miss Nepal as a representative of Koshi.
A successful actress now, Rekha doesn’t’ want to accept that defeat and tells that, she was very young at that time. She didn’t even have a citizenship certificate. Now, she says, “I guess I lost because I didn’t have a citizenship certificate.”
UPDATE (May 2014)
