Siddharth Nigam, who is currently winning hearts with his amazing performance in the television show Aladdin- Naam Toh Suna Hoga, is a popular face on the small screen. The actor not only has a massive following on social media, but he is also a TikTok star with a huge fan base on the platform. He has garnered 4.2 million fans on Instagram and has about 6.8 million followers on TikTok, and that’s huge! Having also acted in other shows such as Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat, Peshwa Bajirao, and others, Siddharth has carved a niche for himself.
However, he never aspired to become an actor! Now given his skills, we can’t believe it’s true, but he himself revealed so in a recent interview. Before his acting career, Sidharth was a national level gymnast and had no intention to enter the showbiz world. In a live chat session with TellyChakkar, Siddharth revealed that it wasn’t him, but his mom Vibha Nigam who wanted him to act. He said that his gymnastic coach informed him about an impromptu trip to Delhi for a competition and he had no idea what was going to be offered. He performed certain stunts and showed off his gymnastic skills.
That’s when he was informed he had been selected for a role. He was then asked about becoming an actor, and he said ‘no’. However, he was selected for the role, given he was a natural. He revealed he had to go for a shoot, which he refused at first, but later agreed.
After that, Siddharth Nigam landed a role in Aamir Khan starrer Dhoom 3, in which he played a double role. Siddharth couldn’t believe it was him in the film, and since then there was no looking back for the talented actor.
