Bhaigo Mantri! Sabha Yathawat nai rakha. (Let it be, Minister! Continue with the meeting). This was the last line of dialogue uttered by veteran actor Bishnu Bhakta Phuyal, who died at the age of 79 Tuesday evening after collapsing on stage. The play in progress was Maharshi Yagyabalkya, at Rastriya Nachghar, Jamal. It was written by Satya Mohan Joshi and directed by Badri Adhikari. According to fellow-member of the cast Bimba Adhikari, Phuyal was doing the role of King Janak of Mithila. He collapsed in the second scene, in which a royal meeting was taking place. “He appeared to be feeling uncomfortable by the second scene. As we approached the end of the scene, he collapsed on stage and we rushed him to hospital,” informed Adhikari. Bir Hospital pronounced Phuyal dead even as he was undergoing treatment.
