About Mumbiker Nikhil’s Early Life
Nikhil Sharma was born on November 4, 1991, in Mumbai. His father Anil Kumar Sharma used to run movie theater business, which, Nikhil is continuing to take it forward. He never discusses his father’s business. His mother is a homemaker. He admits that he was a below-average student in school who secured just enough marks i.e., 55 per cent, to pass the senior secondary.
He got the admission in hotel management at Rizvi Institute of Studies and Research in Mumbai. Soon he realized hotel management wasn’t meant for him. While still in graduation, he applied for Jet and Qatar Airways. Luckily, he cleared for both. Nikhil chose Qatar Airways over Jet and served as a flight attendant in the Airlines for six long years.
During all these times, he went through heartbreaks. The only good thing he considered then was his camera. He developed an affinity towards the device which is his ‘life’ now. While serving for the sixth year in Qatar Airways, Nikhil Sharma took a break from his routine job and thought of starting a venture of his own. When he spoke of the idea, his father Anil Sharma warned him. Like every ambitious child, he won his dad’s heart; his father agreed that Nikhil could stay but with a condition – if his venture doesn’t go well, Nikhil would go back to join his job. Nikhil Sharma had put up a business which failed.
