Love and marriage

Ranjana met director Shyam Bhattarai while working in a TV serial ‘Gahana’. Shyam was attracted to the beauty and he introduced Ranjana in big screen movie ‘Maryada’. They started having an affair. After about a 4-years-long affair Shyam and Ranjana got married. Shyam’s family however wasn’t supportive to the marriage. In a report in xnepali, Shyam had gone through a 7-days-long hunger strike at home before they got married on June 15, 2006. The marriage lasted till the beginning of the year 2009. After being separated for about 8 month, they re-united (on November 18, 2009) for a short while until she went to the USA.

When Ranjana left the country, she also left Shyam. In various interviews, Shyam has told that he still loves Ranjana and has kept her stuffs with him expecting her return in his life.

Possibility of return to acting

When Ranjana failed to get the Green Card to stay permanently in the USA, she is planning to return back home and start acting again. There however is a very slim possibility of Ranjana’s return to acting. Here are the reasons:

  • She was brought in the film industry by Shyam Bhattarai and she had never established herself as a credible actress.
  • Some film industry personals accuse Ranjana Sharma of forgoting all about Nepal and her acting career when she moved to the USA.
  • In the last few years the film industry has gone through a transformation and there are a lot of new competition.
  • Ranjana is relatively older when compared to new entries. She has also gained weight in recent time.
  • A halt of few years in acting career is usually the end for most of the actresses.
  • Previous US-return artists in Nepali film industry like actress Karishma Manandhar, Gauri Malla and Ramesh Upreti are struggling to get a credible role in movies.

Another option is to get the US green card by other means. One of the common practice is to marry a US citizen. There was such rumor about Ranjana getting married in the USA in 2013.
