Permanent Roommates actor Nidhi Singh: I am a lot more like Mikesh in real life


But there are a few things about her that I really like. Watch | Every Delhi Girl In The World featuring Nidhi Singh

Nidhi stepped into the digital space when the medium was still at a premature level in India. As I mention Permanent Roommates, Nidhi explains why the show connected with the youth. She is a lot calmer than me. From day one, I could really see Tanya in my real life, I could see her as a friend of mine and that really excited me. But it just came and everybody was like, this is so important. She was also seen in the recent film Dil Juunglee alongside Taapsee Pannu and Saqib Saleem. Dil Juunglee starred Taapsee Pannu, Saqib Saleem, Nidhi Singh and Abhilash Thapliyal. It is actually serious business and people are putting effort and audience is appreciating it. Somewhere there was a very strong sense of relatability,” she said. The show became an instant hit among the youngsters and Nidhi began to rule the digital world with other collaborations like Every Delhi Girl in the World, Man’s World and Humorously Yours. “The space is still very new and evolving, and there is no hierarchy set. The good thing is that the results are so quick, if people like it, they like it, if they don’t, they don’t and you know that immediately,” she explained. And just like her onscreen characters, Nidhi is as chirpy in real life too. I close the chat by asking her, whether she thinks her career has been fulfilling so far, and pat comes the reply, “I am too young and I am too new to even say the word ‘fulfilling’. 2018-05-05T10:01:27+05:30″>

I am hungry, I just want to do better and better work. In fact, she claims to be like Mikesh, the character played by her co-star Sumeet Vyas. I am not like, I am doing so much, now I want a holiday,” she said. I would say I am a lot more like Mikesh in real life. While her character Tanya was a girl-next-door, what appealed to me was her fiercely independent and practical personality. “I am a person who likes a certain momentum and a pace. I am a lot more impulsive and go with my instinct. People are sweet and very respectful to me,” she clarified. In next few years, we will see proper studios backing channels, only then a call will be taken but as of now, I feel a certain equality in how people deal with me and my male co-actors. The reason for a massive digital boom is that big studios are pumping in a lot of money, it’s not something that is there on Facebook and YouTube. “I came to Mumbai and did my graduation. I got an opportunity to intern with an ad firm. But, she further clarifies that she isn’t like Tanya. Allahabad girl Nidhi reveals that it was Shakespeare’s plays which lured her towards performing arts and pushed her to take the route to Mumbai where she worked as an assistant director in the advertising industry. I quit my job and became an assistant director. The film co-starring Arjun Mathur and Manav Vij has been directed by Nikhil Bhatt and is a dark comedy. Nidhi’s web series Permanent Roommates revolves around a couple, Tanya and Mikesh, and the challenges they face when they decide to get married after being in a long-distance relationship. “I always read a script like an audience, because I am the audience first. Then I decided I don’t want to do this. Sharing what drew her towards films, she said, “Films have been the biggest inspiration for me. I am goofy and do stupid things,” the actor told us. From a teenage kid, sitting on her sofa watching TV, to being in the industry, it is very overwhelming and films have been such an intrinsic part of our growing up. Nidhi had faced the film camera back in 2012 for Barfi, but her little scene with Ranbir Kapoor was edited out. I just want to be a part of everything that is well written and well thought of. Finally, she made her big screen debut with Dil Juunglee this year. So has she ever faces any kind of bias in the digital industry? However, she seems happy to have seen the platform grow. So it has been a whirlwind of a journey.”

Nidhi’s next film titled Brij Mohan Amar Rahe is in its post-production phase. “The digital medium is so new that when I was studying about media, digital was not even a part of it. As I begin my chat with this talented actor, I tell her how I had been waiting to speak with her for sometime now, and she gushes, “What kept you waiting?” She begins by accepting that she likes to remain hands-full. I want it all.”
