Nisha Aggarwal is the debutant heroine of the upcoming film Ishtam. The actress, as her surname suggests, is the younger sister of popular Tamil and Telugu actress Kajal Aggarwal. Nisha is being paired opposite Vimal in Ishtam in what could be the latter’s first city-based subject in his career so far.
Even before the release of her debut film, Nisha made news recently when she stoutly defended her elder sibling when the news and photographs of Kajal’s ‘topless’ pictures for the men’s fashion magazine FHM appeared on the Internet and in the print media. Despite FHM’s confirmation that the pictures weren’t morphed ones and were as real as the existence of the universe, Nisha went all out to defend her sister.
Ishtam is the remake of a Telugu film in which Nisha played the heroine. Nisha is also awaiting the release of Solo, her Telugu film opposite Varun Sandesh. She has said that she’s open to offers from Tollywood and has hinted that like Kajal, she would also love to do both Tamil and Telugu films simultaneously.
“As an actress, I don’t differentiate between Tamil and Telugu and would love to star in as many languages possible and in as many divergent roles….If I get a couple of more films in Tamil after Ishtam, I’d go all out to master the language and would appoint a special tutor for the purpose. In fact, I learnt Telugu only by watching Kajal’s Telugu movies sitting along with her,” says Nisha, flashing a flooring smile.
