Nikhil Dwivedi talks about his dream role, films and Mumbai City

Nikhil Dwivedi is someone who does not fall in to the typical synonym of the typical tall, dark, handsome Bollywood hero. He is someone who can rightly be called as the ‘Thinking Man’s Actor’, for he is not just artistically oriented but academically as well… as he holds a dual MBA degree, wherein, one MBA stands for ‘Masters in Business Administration’ while the second stands for ‘Masters in Bollywood Acting’.

Armed with films like My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves and others, Nikhil is someone who is surely a name to watch out for in the days to come, for his stellar and much-talked about performance in the flick Shor In the City. Satish Sundaresan of Bollywood Hungama caught up with this actor wherein he talks all about his dream role, his favourite movies and his take on Mumbai. Over to you, Nikhil!
