Debut in Nepali film industry
In Kathmandu, she started taking dance classes for physical fitness. She had no interest in acting in movies. Shree Krishna was looking for an actress for his movie ‘Kaha Bhetiyala’. Shree Krishna’s friend suggested Sweta to be fit for the movie. He went to the dance class of Basanta Sapkota to watch her dancing and talked to her. When Shree Krishna proposed her the role, Sweta was pleasantly surprised. She agreed and Ranjana became Sweta and Shree Krishna became the guardian of the new actress.
Since then Shree Krishna used to go to Sweta’s house in Khopasi. He used to take Sweta to home and pick up from there to take her to the shooting spots. Shree Krishna had regularly gone to her parental home and the last time he had been there was a month before their marriage.
