Nikita Dutta (born 13 November 1990) is an Indian television actress. She was one of the finalists of Femina Miss India 2012. She made her Bollywood debut with the film Lekar Hum Deewana Dil where she played a supporting role. She made her television debut with the show Dream Girl. She is best known for her portrayal of Suman Tiwari in Ek Duje Ke Vaaste and Aanchal Srivastava in Haasil.
Nikita Dutta was born on 13 November 1990 to Anand Dutta and Alka Dutta in Delhi. She has a sister named Ankita Dutta. As her father is a naval officer in the Indian navy, she has spent most of her life living in Visakhapatnam, Mumbai and Kochi. She has done her schooling from Mumbai. She is an Economics graduate from St. Xavier's College, Mumbai.
2012–14: Femina and Bollywood debut
In 2012, Dutta participated in Femina Miss India and landed up as one of the finalists. Later, she made her Bollywood debut with a brief character in the romantic comedy Lekar Hum Deewana Dil (2014). Produced by Saif Ali Khan, the film failed to perform well at the box office.
In 2015, Dutta made her television debut with Life OK's drama series Dream Girl – Ek Ladki Deewani Si. She starred alongside Shraddha Arya and Mohsin Khan, portraying Lakshmi Mathur, an aspiring actress who falls in love with Khan's character. She quit the show in January 2016.
In 2016, Dutta was cast in Sony Entertainment Television's Ek Duje Ke Vaaste opposite Namik Paul. Her chemistry with Paul and role as Suman Tiwari, a girl who likes cooking and wants to have her own restaurant, was well appreciated by critics. She won the Lions Gold Award for Jodi No. 1 with Paul. However, the show culminated in October the same year because of low TRP ratings.
Dutta's next television show was yet another Sony Entertainment Television series—the romantic thriller Haasil–which aired for 4 months (October 2017 to February 2018). Cast opposite Zayed Khan and Vatsal Sheth, she received praise for her portrayal of Aanchal Srivastava, a lawyer who dares up against a rich family, Raichands, and engages in a love triangle with the family's two step-brothers (played by Khan and Sheth). For her performance, Dutta was awarded the Lions Gold Award for Best Actress. After the show's air-off, she appeared in a episode of &TV's episodic horror series Laal Ishq and quit television shows.
2018–present: Bollywood comeback
In 2018, Dutta returned to Bollywood films with Gold, a sports film directed by Reema Kagti and based upon the national hockey team's title at the 1948 Summer Olympics. Co-starring with Akshay Kumar, Mouni Roy, and Sunny Kaushal, she played the supporting role of Simran (Kaushal's girlfriend). Upon release, the film received favourable and positive reviews from critics and emerged as a commercial success, grossing a total of over ₹1.50 billion (US$22 million) worldwide.
As of September 2018, Dutta has three upcoming film projects. She will portray an actress in Sandeep Vanga's drama film Kabir Singh (a remake of the 2017 Telugu film Arjun Reddy), co-starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, and will appear in Anand Tiwari's romance Ticket to Bollywood as part of an ensemble cast including Vicky Kaushal, Pulkit Samrat, and Amyra Dastur. Dutta will also feature in Sharan Sharma's Kargil Girl, a biopic based on the life of an IAF pilot named Gunjan Saxena (played by Janhvi Kapoor in the film).
