I don’t want to mention what incident it was but he once crossed the line with me and I didn’t like it. I told him sternly that he did wrong and he didn’t speak to me after that. I just thought I should keep a distance from him because I don’t want to be reminded of that. At the stage also when I saw him, I just reacted that I know him.”
- In an interview, Nishant shared that he had been through various hardships in his career. He said,
It’s a very long conversation, but to cut it short, I would just say that [I’m] grateful for the past 15 years. I’ve been a choreographer, dancer, assistant and in today’s time, I am doing very well. I have been a part of all the possible best shows, even during the lockdown, I had to say no to some shows because of the dates. But to get here also has not been easy, because it is quite a difficult position and designation. Every day there are new dancers coming, formats changing and to survive all that and still have a show and be part of the best shows, I think it’s taken me 15 years to reach here which is quite long, so I think that’s the hardship.”
He further added,
But after that, it just didn’t happen because new dancers started coming in, new shows started happening and I never participated in any show as a contestant, I have always been a choreographer. So they stopped calling me and there were like 4-5 years when there was no work for me. There was no money happening for me, so it was a tough phase. It was quite a bad time. But I never gave up. I was still struggling and I went back to dancing and assisting. I have this quality that I don’t give up so easily if I want something I get it.”
