Nikhil Mehta might be one of the most known faces in the list of 13 commoners in Bigg Boss 10, which will be hosted by Salman Khan. To call him a ‘non-celeb’ would be slightly wrong, as he is already a small-time television actor. The actor-model-VJ has also done several television commercials.
Nikhil plays the character of Piddi on Channel V’s The Buddy Project. At the age of 14, Nikhil came to Mumbai from Delhi to learn music from Suresh Wadekar’s institute, and then there was no looking back. Today he is a trained classical musician and can play many instruments. His biggest break was featuring in the Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Shubharambh advertisement, which made him a popular face. He has till date done close to 40 commercials and made appearances on various TV shows as well.
Nikhil is also a passionate singer and has sung for his shows Yeh Parindey, The Buddy Project and BoyzHe. He has learnt dance from Shaimak Davar, and made his television debut with Doordarshan and is seen on Channel V and &TV. This 24-year-old actor is a Sagittarius and also loves cricket.
Why should Nikhil Mehta be on Bigg Boss 10: Nikhil is one of the youngest, yet the most experienced among the 13 commoners. This will be an advantage for him. He knows how to wear that attitude on the camera and maintain his star-status. He is a musician and an entertainer, which might help him find a place among the other housemates. Though he might face adjustment challenges, considering he is neither a non-celeb nor fully known on screen.
