About the Show
“The Leader” is a Nepali reality show produced by the SRBN Media. This show was made with the purpose of discovering a visionary commander, a leader who can give vision instead of speech and solution instead of problems so as to change the current situation of the country.
Rabi Lamichanne was hosting this show. While the former Prime Minister of Nepal Dr. Baburam Bhattrai, former Chief Justice of Nepal Sushila Karki, Journalist and Politician Rabindra Misra, Pradip Giri and Pradip Nepal were to be seen on the judge panel. This show was to boardcaste on News 24, Ramailo TV and the Gundruk App but shifted to Galaxy 4k afterwards.
The show was announced on the 26th of Mangsir, 2076 B.S. and it claimed to launch auditions in all seven provinces of Nepal and even in foreign countries. 100 best candidates would be chosen and brought to Kathmandu for the final judgement. A total of 1192 people registered for the show paying Rs. 1000 as registration fee.
Why “The Leader” came to a halt?
While the show was processing, COVID-19 pandemic broke out giving pause to everything including this show. Now that the pandemic is somewhat in control, the program was supposed to resume. Nevertheless, the host of this show Rabi Lamichhane has now entered in politics which is the recent reason of stoppage of “The Leader”. The show has yet to determine whether to cancel the entire show or hire a new host.
