Wilson Bikram Rai became the talk of the town after his video named The Wilson Bikram Show channeled on YouTube. It has already been able to amuse many people who have seen his videos online. He tells us how his grandfather was awarded the Victoria Cross (a complete fictional story), in one of his videos. Having been featured in several Nepali movies including Kasle Choryo Mero Mann, Sayaad and Facebook, he is also into directing cerography – the art of engraving on wax.

His father and his sister live in Birtamod, his mother, however, passed away when he was only nine years old. Addicted to movies since his childhood (which he likes to call Filmania), repeating and reciting the dialogues and doing caricatures of famous actors, deep down somewhere in his mind, he always knew that he would one day enter into the cinema business.
There was a shooting of a movie in his hometown, back in his childhood days and they were looking for a child artist just for one scene. His father told him about it encouraging him to go for the role, so, he considers his father as the inspiration for him.
