  1. Except for Anmol KC, I agree with the list. Anmol is a making a huge impact in the industry right now, however, I think he is not in the all the top 10 actors list, just yet. He is very popular, but I think he still has a lot to learn in terms of acting. I think Dilip Rayamajhi should be on the list instead of Anmol. Dilip has given some of the all the blockbuster movies. His comic timing, dancing skills are well known by everyone. And Also, I think Shree Krishna Shrestha should come before Nikhil.
    My list (my opinion) would look like:
    1) Rajesh Hamal (Maha Naya for many reasons: )
    2) Shree Krishna Shrestha (Very talented actor and dancer)
    3) Bhuwan KC (Had huge contribution to Nepali film industry before we got Rajesh Hamal)
    4) Sunil Thapa (Nepali film industry did not recognize actors in the Negative role that often. However, Sunil Thapa and Neer Shah were only actors who were able to get recognization because of their talent.)
    5) Neer Shah
    6) Shiva Shrestha (Gave some beautiful movies in the early 80s)
    7) Dilip Rayamajhi (He is one of the finest Nepali actor industry ever produced. He has given some blockbuster films like Darpan Chaya and Muglan). He has very good acting skills along with a brilliant comic timing, and was the best dancer in the industry.)
    8) Daya Hang Rai (I think he should be within the top 5, but most of the time does similar kind of role so I am keeping him down here.)
    9) Saugat Malla (very good actor)
    10) Nikhil Upreti (He is one of the best action heroes)
