Clocks tick, time runs. You may delay, but time won’t. With multiple
important choices to make in life, we can’t afford to delay much. I made
my choice in exploring and giving inspiration to children of my age who
are confused in making decisions from where to start and to reach their
goal. My choice was to explore child achievers. Interact with them and
show those conversations with the world. Inspire other children!
No one would believe that a six-year-old child acted in a movie! It may
sound too fantastic, but it is true.
The other too-good-to-be-true situation of the moment was this: I was
about to interview such an actor who started his journey in the film
industry when he was six years old. I was unable to accept the fact that
he had acted in about eight movies, seventy-five commercials, twenty-
five short films, and could converse in six languages! Unbelievable, isn’t
Hint: He played the lead role in ‘Pasanga 2’. It is Nishesh.
Nishesh is a budding star who started his journey when he was six years.
He began as a child artist under award-winning director Vasanthabalan
sir. Nishesh qualified all three rounds and got selected for his first movie
to act as young Siddharth in Kaviya Thalaivan. He also received the Best
Child Actor Award from MGR Sivaji and the United India Academy. He
loves all the characters he has played.
His mother is from Rajasthan, so he knows Marathi and Hindi. Since his
father is a Keralite, he knows Malayalam, and because he lives in
Chennai he knows to speak Tamil. He wants to continue his studies
abroad, so he is learning french, and he knows English. This is the story
of his 6 languages.
Having a balanced schedule is very important for a person like him. He
mentions that his mom was a big support for him during his shots. He
reads and practices his schoolwork during intervals of his shooting
instead of having fun during break and having coffee or relaxing. Hard
work is very important for one to succeed, so Nishesh did miss his
school time. Instead of having fun, he works hard to get his shot perfect.
This shows his determination to succeed.
Moreover, because of his career, he misses all his school friends, sports
time, and tournaments, even though sports are his favorite pastime.
School friends are the ones with whom we share a special bond, but he
misses school a lot, and subsequently loses the time he spends with
them. He also can’t attend the birthday parties of his friends, and only
attends them virtually.
His dream is to become a very successful actor. His dream is to become
as successful as Superstar Rajinikanth sir, who is his role model.
Nishesh also wants to work with him at least once in his career.
Holidays are meant to have fun, enjoying time with friends and family.
Children have a habit of purchasing new collections of the latest model
dress, gaming equipment, watch models and brand new shoes, etc. one
should be kind enough and have a big heart to spend time with poor
people and help them. Nishesh is kind enough to do all that. He believes
that his contribution towards society would be providing shelter to
people who are homeless. He wants to contribute to the abolition of
poverty. From the side of the First Step, I wish him all the best in this
A goal without a plan is just a wish. One should be patient enough, find
motivation and work hard. Opportunities never knock our doors. We
need to find them. We need to accept changes and make the best use of
them by giving our 100%. In the morning, we can choose to either
continue our dreams in sleep, or wake up to chase them.
Acting is a profession. It might sound and seem easy but it is not. To be
a good actor, confidence and skills are a must. Each one faces
difficulties in their profession. Nishesh had to apply glycerin to his eyes
so that they get teary. He felt that these were the most difficult parts for
him as it burns his eyes a lot. The next time, to avoid its usage, he learnt
how to get teared up without glycerin usage. He improvised in his
But above all these accolades, the best thing about Nishesh is his
consistency. When Sachin Tendulkar comes to the field, we always
expect a century from him. Keeping up our performance to be the best is
a tough task, and Nishesh is doing it well. We can too...
