Talking about how he became an actor, Nishant has a very interesting story to tell. He was studying at IIM Calcutta, but fate had different plans for him. "I was studying management at IIM Calcutta. And one day, when I was travelling in the metro, a person came to me and gave his card saying, ‘call me’ and before I could ask him why, he just got down. So, out of curiosity, I called him and he immediately said, ‘I think you should be a model’ to which I said, I can't be a model, as I am a student. He said, ‘just come to me and we will speak over it.’ So I went and he said, ‘you have to make a portfolio so that we can circulate it and you can do great in Calcutta itself.’ I was a little skeptical and thought yeh sab to bas filmon mein hota hai. Then I told him that I will make a portfolio, but I will pay you only if I get work. I was just trying to be safe as I was a management student so I knew how the industry works," he said.
He continued, "After that, I got a lot of modelling assignments in Calcutta. And then, Allied Model, an online agency called me from Delhi and they offered me a 2-year contract. It was like a dream come true for me and I signed the contract. However, at the same time, I continued with my studies and shoots in Calcutta. One day, suddenly I got a call from Allied Model Management, Delhi. I remember that girl’s name was Ritu. She asked me, ‘Nishant are you interested in acting?’ I was like everything is going well, so I should say yes! Eventually, I agreed. The girl asked me to audition for the Star One show, Miley Jab Hum Tum in which they were introducing a new main lead called Adhiraj. Now, that got me very excited as I thought to myself that I will be seen on Television. I was like, yeah, I will give the audition and she replied, ‘pack your bags and come to Mumbai.’"
"Then I called up my parents and said, ‘Mom dad, I have to go Mumbai for an audition.’ Luckily, they were in my favour and on my way back, Ritu called me and asked as to how soon I could shift to Mumbai. I asked why, she said, ‘you have got the role’. And that's how I became an actor," Nishant said in an interview.
