Besides advocating on issues of Human Trafficking, he is also an avid advocator of ending the culture of impunity in Nepal as he feels that the victims are routinely denied justice because the perpetrators of human rights violations continuously enjoy impunity, which has become a major challenge for the country that is trying to enter into a new phase.
Involved with the entertainment business for more than a decade, he had chosen the path of activism to fight for a cause. Unlike his job in the media house, activism for him is not a tool of making a life rather it is a platform to fight for a cause, to fight against injustice.

This talented personality is a youth icon not only for his on-air confidence as a media personality but also as a youth activist who has been advocating for some of the major and critical issues like human trafficking, drug abuse and ending impunity in the country among the others.
