  • In October 2020, Nikhlesh Rathore adopted a pomeranian dog named Leo which was earlier one of his friends’. In an interview, he mentioned that he is an animal lover and he believes that adopting a dog bought him an immense amount of good luck. He said,

    My pet has brought me luck. I am fond of animals and I’m glad that I decided to adopt a dog from my friend three months back. I got a Pomeranian puppy home and now he is very dear to me and my wife. We have named him Leo. I feel that he has been lucky for me because after he came to my life, I got one of my biggest acting breaks – a role in a mythological show, Srimad Ramayana. I have worked in shows like Mithai and Wagle Ki Duniya but the kind of recognition this show is getting me is something I haven’t experienced before. I often take Leo with me to the sets and everyone enjoys being around him. I feel dogs are the best gift for humans. The bond between us is unique. He makes me laugh and also listens to me when I need him to. He understands that he can’t disturb me during work, so he is a good puppy on the sets.”

    Since childhood, my parents advised me to read books on lord Rama, Krishna, Swami Vivekananda and others to make sure that I stay connected to my grounds and grow bright and cultured. Having read literally many books on spirituality, my favourites are Bhagavad Gita, Ramcharitmanas. At times I do read or listen to poetry by Dr. Kumar Vishwas. I enjoy his samvaad like Krishna-Karan or Ram-Bharat. They merge ancient wisdom with modern insights, each one capable of sparking profound shifts in our consciousness.”
