Personal life (Nikhita Gandhi Biography)

Gandhi is half-Bengali and half-Punjabi and has been in Chennai while doing her graduation. Growing up, she learnt Odissi dance and Hindustani music for almost 12 years.

Career

Born into a mixed Bengali and Punjabi family in Kolkata. Nikhita has done her schooling at the prestigious La Martiniere for Girls, Kolkata. Nikhita relocated to Chennai in 2010 to pursue a degree in dentistry. A former student of A. R. Rahman’s K. M. College of Music and Technology, Nikhita’s first association with Rahman was during an Indo-German exchange, where she was a part of a choir that performed with the German orchestra. Rahman then individually auditioned her for a commercial project titled ‘Qyuki’ with Shekhar Kapur, which the duo was working on. In 2012, she cut a Bengali album titled Kotha, a re-arrangement of Nazrul Geeti, songs written by renowned poet Kazi Nazrul Islam.

After having worked on her studio album and sung as a part of songs in regional films, Nikhita got a breakthrough by performing the song “Ladio” from Shankar’s film, I (2015). Composed by A. R. Rahman, she managed to record the song within four hours after translating it into Hindi. She also recorded the Telugu and Hindi versions of the song, earning critical acclaim for her work. Other projects she worked on in 2015 include Rahman’s O Kadhal Kanmani and Anirudh’s Thanga Magan.

Apart from singing in the movies, she has put together a band and performed in Kerala and Kolkata. Gandhi’s five-member band includes Sajith Sathya, Jerard Felix, Godfrey Immanuel, and Joshua Gopal.

She has been adjudged as the best female playback singer of the year by the Zee Cine Awards 2018 for the title track of Raabta.
