Kathmandu: All 20 contestants for the next round of the Samsung Nepali Tara have at last been selected. While there are already wild speculations doing the rounds, the next few weeks would definitely be a daunting period for all concerned.

“The anxiety has intensified ever since the number of contestants reduced to 206 and even the judges will have a tough time making a judicious selection. The upcoming rounds of Nepali Tara has more excitement in store as the singers, who have left an imprint on audiences by now with their brilliant performances, will be seen onscreen crooning to the

diverse genres of Nepali music,” said presenter Brazesh Khanal. —HNS
