He is the outsider from Mumbai who stepped into an industry where the language and culture were alien but Nishan has managed to carve a niche for himself in Mollywood. His role in the hit film Ee Adutha Kalathu, where he played a migrant worker still has recall value. Armed with a knack of picking up languages and dialects, Nishan will now be seen in the upcoming film Lolans. With this role, Nishan hopes to shed his ‘serious’ image and attempt a comic role. Nishan is not in any tearing hurry to sign films randomly but would rather wait for a good role to come his way. He speaks about his reasons for accepting Lolans, “I won’t call the film an out of the box one; it is a typical, commercial, fun film which you would have seen a hundred times but as far as I was concerned, I wanted to be a part of such a film. I wanted the whole nine yards including the song and dance routine. Somehow I am associated with serious roles and I decided to see if I could do justice to a fun film.

The film is about five friends and the fun times they have. My character is someone who has a past which forces him to move away from Bengaluru and then meets a girl.”

 

Starting off with the film Ritu in 2009, he has already acted in around 16 films and straddled different genres. Through each carefully chosen film he has managed to leave a mark purely on his acting merit. Nishan talks about his criteria, “More than the film, it is the kind of people I work with that interests me. I have to spend around two months with the people so it is necessary that I have a good working experience. Obviously the script is important but I am open to even average scripts." Nishan also lets on that that there is another important aspect that he considers very important — a vibe he needs to feel! He explains, “I meet a person and I listen to a script but I also gauge how much they want me in the film and how much passion they have towards filmmaking. Eventually the outcome of a film is not in my hands but I can go only by their intentions.” Nishan mentions that both the makers of his upcoming films Hadiya and Lolans flew down to Mumbai because they were adamant that they wanted him in it.

 

Nishan who has acted in Bollywood films has signed on for a Hindi film with Arjun Rampal and he says talks are also on for a Telugu film.

Before signing off, he says that he is happy with the response from the Malayali audience. “I did not expect that I would be working in the Malayalam industry. So many actors are entering the industry each day and in between that as a non-Malayali, if I have been accepted, it is a great thing.”
