ATV ac­tor’s job can be quite stress­ful given the long and er­ratic shoot­ing sched­ules. This of­ten leads to stress, which af­fects one’s mind and body se­verely. Many ac­tors have openly spo­ken about go­ing through dif­fi­cult times. Ram Mi­laayi Jodi ac­tor Nis­hant Singh Malkani has also opened up about how at times he gets night­mares about not be­ing able to per­form on screen.

“My night­mare as an ac­tor is not be­ing able to per­form on screen. My big­gest night­mare would be that I’m not be­ing able to play a par­tic­u­lar char­ac­ter con­vinc­ingly, and it looks fake. There have been times when I’d wake up wor­ried. In the be­gin­ning I did not un­der­stand why this was hap­pen­ing till a friend told me that it might be due to too much work and in the process I was tak­ing stress un­know­ingly. Now ev­ery time that hap­pens, I med­i­tate and that helps,” he says.

Nis­hant adds he does not take his job lightly, but he has re­alised the im­por­tance of tak­ing breaks. “I take my work and act­ing se­ri­ously. I have started util­is­ing my breaks in a dif­fer­ent way… I try and re­lax as much as pos­si­ble, catch up on my sleep and read some­thing. I’ve also started tak­ing hol­i­days to travel,” says the ac­tor, who is play­ing the lead in an on­go­ing show.

He also thanks fans for their ap­pre­ci­a­tion, which he con­sid­ers his big­gest re­ward. “I’m en­joy­ing my work as peo­ple are watch­ing and ap­pre­ci­at­ing my per­for­mances. Get­ting love from my fans is a very big ac­com­plish­ment for me. Their love mo­ti­vates me,” adds Nis­hant.
