This skinny girl with killer looks was introduced in Tamil with Jay Jay opposite Madhavan. She made her Hindi debut with James and Sarkar, both directed by Ram Gopal Varma. Since her debut in Hindi, she was known as the muse of Ram Gopal Varma but their next film, Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, a remake of the legendary Sholay, was a complete box office washout. Even Ramu admitted that Aag was a mistake. With Aag (translated fire) fast extinguished fast by the audience, the friendship between the director and the actress also ran out of steam.
Although Nisha became a known figure in Bollywood, her name is often associated only with non-significant roles with daring and steamy outfits. She is yet to come up with noteworthy performances to be considered as a serious actress; she is probably wishing Sandalwood will provide her with the opportunity which has been eluding her for long. It will take a lot of hard work and an image makeover for Nisha to be considered a good actress. With her ability to bounce back, hopefully, she will taste success this time.
