Born on the 12th of February, 1991, Nikhil Wairagar is an actor in Indian cinema. He was born in the city of Pune, Maharashtra, where he spent most of his childhood and teenage years, attending the AW Sindhu Vidya Bhavan School in his early years. He graduated with a commerce degree from Marathwada Mitra Mandal College of Commerce. Throughout his college life, Wairagar made it a point to act in as many small plays as he could, including English language ones such as the Fiddler on the Roof.
He also pursued a part in many Marathi plays across various colleges, which stands to reason as to why his debut was playing a part in the famous Marathi movie, Headline, alongside film actor
Prasad Oak. This film was aimed at a
Young Adult crowd and hashed out the issues of social media and how they affected the youth of the nation. After this initiation, Wairagar continued to act in many more films such as Ek Thriller Night with TV star
Ashmit Patel, and many more, finally hitting his big break when he got a part in the 2016 sensation, Jalsa, a Marathi comedy alongside a similarly talented crew. This film was directed by Ashutosh Raj, and has a plethora of young talents like
Bharat Ganeshpure, Abhijit Chavan, Sagar Karande, and Shital Ahirrao in pivotal roles.
The storyline of the film revolves around two teenagers Amar and Prem (played by Wairagar himself), from a rich family in Pune who has aspirations to enter the film industry as actors against the wishes of their parents. They receive help and support from other members of the family, mainly their uncle, and the storyline continues on the ups and downs in their lives through the use of comedy to set a light and frivolous tone for the entire length of the film. This addition to Wairagar’s resume has lifted him through great heights within the industry and has given him immense opportunities in the Marathi movie craze. He even has an important role in an upcoming movie called Gadmat, which is already at the post-production stage.
Most of Wairagar’s personal life has never seen the media, as the actor likes to keep to himself and does as little to get involved among the press; this sheds light on his down-to-earth nature and charismatic character. Furthermore, it is this modesty that has built the young actor a solid career in the field of Marathi cinema, earning him the respect and affection of thousands across the country.
