Aaryan Sigdel debuted in Kismat and then played a lead role in a romantic love story Mero Euta Saathi Cha, as a young royal spoilt brat. The film was highly inspired by the Korean hit A Millionaire's First Love. His portrayal of Jay Shamsher Junga Bahadur Rana was highly appreciated and generated lots of fan-base for him.

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 College. 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 Rekha Thapa. Kismat was a highest grossing 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.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, First Love,The Flashback.

In 2010 his six films were released. Two of his films Kohi Mero and Bandhi did not do well where the sixth release Kasle Choryo Mero Man broke all the records at the box office. In this film he again appeared opposite Rekha Thapa. Though the rumours of fallout between the two pair is heard quite often but their pair is said to be the best onscreen pair in Nepali films.
It is very interesting fact that 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 latest release K Yo Maya Ho successfully made a good opening at the box office. K Yo Maya Ho is directed by Sudarshan Thapa who directed Mero Euta Saathi Cha.
