Jitu Nepal Bio
Jitu or Jeetu Nepal is very famous in Nepal. But, his life was not as easy and it took a while for him to progress in his field. Jitu was born on 15 June 1975 in Jyamire village located in Sindhupalchowk, Nepal. He grew up with 6 siblings and was the youngest of them all. He has 5 elder brothers and an elder sister. The economic condition was not always the best, hence life was never easy growing up for the comedy actor.
He spent all his childhood in Jyamire village itself. It was in 2048 B.S. that he completed his SLC from ‘Jalpa Secondary School’ in Sindhupalchowk. It is quite saddening for his fans to know that he came to Kathmandu with hopes to pursue higher education. But he was unable to do so because he could not afford it. Regardless of this, the actor has managed to succeed in the best way possible and there is nothing more impressive than this.
Struggles after coming to Kathmandu
Life has never been fair for him. Even after leaving his educational pursuit because of financial problems, he could not lead a good and happy life almost immediately. In fact, he reached a point in his life where he was willing to do everything to sustain himself in the capital city.
Opportunities were not as vast back then as it is now. Though he came to the city seeking a better life, he had to go through a lot of struggles. From working as an assistant storekeeper in a garment store to investing in his own small business venture and bearing loss, he had done it all.
Thankfully, he came in contact with the editor of Nepal Television who recommended he work with famous Nepali producer Santosh Panta. Panta was then working with Hijo Aaja Ko Kura which is also one of the longest-running shows in the history of Nepal. In the process, he also met Television actor Deepak Raj Giri and became good friends with him. These events and meets in his life helped him proceed in his career as a comedy actor.

Jitu Nepal Partner and Children
Jitu is a married man. He married his wife Muna Nepal on 25 February 2003. The couple has a daughter and a son together. Needless to mention, the couple is extremely happy with one another and you can see how happy they are about Jitu’s progress throughout the years. Nepal also shared how it was almost impossible for him to take his wife for a honeymoon when they were newly married.
It was mostly because of how their financial condition plus his father was very sick during that time. He got married on Falgun and his father passed away on Baisakh which made it all the harder for the couple to go on any kind of tour for a whole year.
Moreover, it was Muna who was there for her husband throughout his struggling journey. The couple has seen the darkest of days and has always kept a positive heart and worked ahead. It wouldn’t be even slightly wrong to say that the couple is a perfect example of love and genuineness.
