Sitaram Kattel started his career as a comedy actor in a tele-serial named ‘Jhamela’. After that he established himself in Nepali television serialsansar.
Sitaram has acted in serials like ‘Geetanjali’, ‘Jire Khursani‘ and ‘Hijo Aaja Ka Kura’. But, what established him most is the popular comedy serial ‘Meri Bassai‘. The character in ‘Meri Bassai’, Dhurmus has become so popular that people recognize him by Dhurmus rather than his real name Sitaram.
Although he had acted in one move ‘Daud’ she hasn’t done any other movies till date. When asked the reason he hasn’t appeared in any other movies, Sitaram says that he has been too busy to consider acting in movies. Sitaram Kattel is currently engaged in production of ‘Meri Bassai’, acting in advertisement and doing stage shows in various parts of Nepal and all around the world. He says, “Television serials are also short movies.”
Talking about the progress in Nepali movie sector, Sitaram says, “Although there is improvement in technology, the content is still the same.”
Dhurmus think the current trend of sex related contents in movie is the result of the lack of creativity in Nepali movie makers. Although sex is natural, the presentation of sex and glamor in Nepali movie is unnatural and fabricated. Dhurmus thinks that the movies should take into consideration of society and culture while making movies.
Dhurmus and Suntali (Kunjana Ghimire) both are planning to go to UK on Ghatasthapana and spend their Dashain festival in Europe. He says that there is a very good demand of Nepali artists during the festival time in foreign countries.
