The Dubai born actor Nishant Malkani was doing MBA from IIM Kolkata, to pursue hotel management and got into modelling by chance. He is now a household name, thanks to serials like ‘Sasural Genda Phool’, ‘Miley Jab Hum Tum’ and not to forget ‘Ram Milaye Jodi’.
Nishant was recently seen in Vikram Bhatt’s HORROR STORY, which he terms as ”a learning experience at an actual spooky location, Mumbai’s Tulip Star hotel, which had closed down a decade back.”
The handsome actor is currently filming for a comedy titled SINGLE CHAL RIYA HOON, under Sai Kabir’s production, where he will feature as Bunty, a Bhopali man who runs to Mumbai to pursue his dreams.
Apart from that, Nishant’s upcoming films include Jashwant Gangani’s BEZUBAAN ISHQ and the Naresh Malhotra directed ISHQ NE CRAZY KIYA RE.
Talking about BEZUBAAN ISHQ, Nishant told us, ”Actually Jashwant Gangani is a top Gujarati director, who is making his first Hindi venture. It is a very beautiful and soulful story with eight songs. I have a love triangle with Mugdha Godse and Sneha Ullal (who makes a comeback of sorts). It has been extensively shot at exotic locations of Rajasthan like Jaipur and Jaisalmer.”
The other film that Nishant stars in is the Naresh Malhotra (YEH DILLAGI fame) directed ISHQ NE CRAZY KIYA RE. ”Now this one is based on a TV reality show, an Indian Idol sort of a thing. This time I have Madhureeta Mukerjee for company, but that’s not all. The film is about how one has to balance love and ambition to emerge a real winner. Once again, it features Mugdha Godse in an important role, and there is another triangle involving me and the two leading ladies,” concludes Nishant.
