|My Voice Universe||Rs 1 crore||Rs 30 lakhs and Rs 20 lakhs respectively|
|My Dance Universe||Rs 1 crore||Rs 30 lakhs and Rs 20 lakhs respectively|
The organizer has the plan to start the program in its widest form. Besides Nepal, the foundation aims to allure massive participation from abroad from Nepali-speaking communities. There are a lot of people in Myanmar, Bhutan, India, Australia, the United States, Canada, and some European countries who speak the Nepali language. So, it’s possible many from these countries would drop in their application to participate from abroad.
Application for both shows is open and will stay valid till the end of January.
