Early Life

Nidhi Bisht was born and raised in Mumbai, India. She has a keen interest in acting and filmmaking from a young age. However, her parents wanted her to have a typical stable kind of occupation. She then went on to study law at Jamia Millia Islamia. After graduation, she shortly worked at Delhi High Court for more than a year before drawing on her strong oratory skills.

Later, Bisht attended a weekend training program in acting, but it is theater which taught her genuine acting,  in view of her natural and basic instincts. Having taught acting from Barry John’s Imago Academy, Bisht’s career was just holding up to bloom.

For her, the theater gave the opportunity which her school or college did not. In theater, there are no rules as such which one has to follow as it generally urges one to act naturally. As of now, she is best known for TVF Pitchers, Umrika, and Permanent Roommates. Particularly her role of Ekta Kapoor in one of their shows.

Bisht came to limelight after she collaborates with TVF, an online digital entertainment network. After her meeting with TVF’s CEO Arunabh Kumar, she joined the team permanently as a creator. As a casting director for TVF, she was able to bring talented performing artists like Abhay Mahajan and Sumeet Vyas to the team.

Personal Life

Her adoration for theater even swung her to an entrepreneur as she has started her own theater company named “New Brain Theatre Volks”. Owning a theater company was her dream from a young age so that she can nourish aspiring actors. The company was launched in January 2011.
