Nitesh Pandey is a veteran TV and movie actor. His Twitter account is NITESH PANDEY (@PAHADIPANDEY) so no point in guessing he hails from the hilly area of Kumaon. He is well known for his versatile acting, be it comedy or intense, he is equally good at both.
From his school days, he had an interest in doing theaters and drama. He started doing theaters from 1990 and worked hard in knowing the nuances of acting. He got his first break in 1995 when he was selected to play the role of a detective in a DD serial ‘
Tejas’. Unfortunately, the serial did not last long due to technical issues. But it helped him in getting other roles.
Some of the serials in which he has acted so far are
Manzilein Apani Apani as Ankush, Justajoo as Mehul, Astitva...Ek Prem Kahani as Dr. Pranay,
Hum Ladkiyan as Kamal Nath, Kuch Toh Log Kahenge as Armaan. Some of the movies he has acted so far are “
Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai” as Ajit,
Khosla Ka Ghosla as Mani/Secretary to Sethi,
Om Shanti Om as Anwar.
He has been acting since 1995, but he never got his due in the TV industry. He has been typecast as a henpecked husband or limited to doing only comic roles, which he thinks is not justified to him. He first married
Ashwini Kalsekar in 1998 and later they got separated in 2002, and again, he married
Arpita Pandey in 2005.
We wish him all the best for his upcoming projects.
