Nisha Aggarwal is an Indian film actress who appears in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam films. She is the sister of South Indian actress Kajal Aggarwal.[1]

Early life

She was born in 1989 in Mumbai, India to Suman Aggarwal and Vinay Aggarwal. She is the younger sister of actress, Kajal Aggarwal.[2][3]


In late 2010, Kajal Aggarwal announced that Nisha would make her acting debut in Telugu films.[4] Nisha had been travelling with her sister to the shooting sets and soon got noticed. Her first Telugu film, she said, happened after the director saw stills of her in a magazine.[5] Her first film was the romantic drama, Yemaindi Ee Vela, which was a box office success.[6] Her performance was praised by critics.[7] Her next film was Solo, which released in late 2011 and featured her as a medical college student, with a reviewer from Rediff stating that she "proves her acting talents in the second half, especially the climax".[8]

She made her debut in Tamil with the film Ishtam (2012), a remake of Yemaindi Ee Vela,[9] which was a box office failure.[10] She appeared as a "chatpata village girl" in 2013 opposite Aadi in Sukumarudu.[11] Later that year she starred in a film titled Saradaga Ammayitho that saw her pairing with her Yemaindi Ee Vela co-star Varun Sandesh again. In 2014, she entered into the Malayalam film industry with Bhaiyya Bhaiyya, playing Angel, an "educated and headstrong girl",[5] who is the daughter of an ex-minister.[12] She has been signed up for another Malayalam film, Cousins,[13] and has completed filming for the Telugu film DK Bose.
