His portrayal of Jay Shamsher Junga Bahadur Rana was highly appreciated and generated fan-base for him and though he has seen up and down in his 10 year old career he is still one of the popular actor in Nepal.

Early life[edit]

Aaryan was born in Gothikada of Surkhet district. His family moved to Thankot, Kathmandu later. He studied at Dipendra Police School and later completed his schooling from Mangloday High School Thankot. A very good student in school, Aaryan went to Ratna Rajya Lakshmi Campus, Kathmandu. With the desire of becoming an actor, he started taking acting lessons and could not complete his study in college. He started taking acting lessons from Pariwartan, Nepal, a theater troupe with whom Aaryan has participated in several street plays as well.

His first lead role was in Kismat, opposite Viraj BhattaRekha Thapa. Kismat was a highest-grossing film of year and National award-winning film directed by Ujwal Ghimire. His second role was in Mausam, which became an average hit at the box office. In 2009, his third film Mero Euta Saathi Cha was released and met with positive response from critics and audience. It was the film that made Aaryan Sigdel a household name in Nepal. Later in the year 2010 he made a hat-trick by biggest hits Hifajat opposite Rekha Thapa, multistarrer irst Love, The Flashback: Farkera Herda opposite superstar Nikhil Upreti and Una Uprety.

In 2010 his six films were released. Two of his films Kohi Mero and Bandhi did not do well, where as the sixth release Kasle Choryo Mero Man opposite Rekha Thapa broke all the records at the box office and became one of the huge hits in Nepali cinema. Though the rumours of fallout between the pair is heard quite often but their pair is said to be the best onscreen pair in Nepali films compared to that of Rajesh Hamal and Karishma Manandar and Nikhil Uprety and Arunima Lamsal.

Most of his films have English titles. Many times he has been criticized for being over selective about scripts in a small industry like Nepal.

Regarded as the highest-paid actor in Nepali film industry, his film K Yo Maya Ho successfully made a good opening at the box office. K Yo Maya Ho is directed by Sudarshan Thapa, who also directed Mero Euta Saathi Cha.
