Dinesh Lal Yadav, popularly known as Nirahua, is the most popular and lucky star of Bhojpuri Cinema.
One of his famous songs broke all records of popularity and became a popular call in Bhojpuri areas. The song was, Dulhin biya bemar, Nirahua satal rahe, which meant that even when the wife is bedriden with illness, Nirahua refuses to leave her alone.
The song gave him his popular name Nirahua, and it stuck so much that ultimately Dinesh Lal too adopted the name.
Dinesh Lal Nirahua has given three Silver Jubilee films in Bhojpuri and all the three are still running in cinema halls. Some or all of these may run upto or beyond Golden Jubilee!
These three films are, kahan jayeeba raja nazariya lara ke, ho gayeel ba pyar orhaniyawali se, and, Nirahua Rickshawala.
