Anisha Dixit is an actor who like all came to Mumbai in search of opportunities but unlikely couldn’t find her breakthrough in Bollywood. One day while traveling in an auto-rickshaw to meet her friend, she was clicking selfies and making videos which later on she found very interesting. That made her wonder why not use an auto-rickshaw as a backdrop for her videos and selfies as auto-rickshaw represents India big time. She uploaded her first video on 17th November 2017 like a Ram Leila movie. She began shooting around rickshaws by inviting nearly 20-30 rickshaw wala Bhaiyas.
This Rickshawali girl is popular with a girl-centric comedy channel on YouTube where she uploads videos of her day-to-day activities along with sketches and funny Vlogs every Tuesdays and Fridays. Before creating her YouTube channel, she was an actress in numerous films and theatre productions in Switzerland, the USA, India, and Germany. She completed her studies at the LeeStrasberg Theatre & Film Institute in Los Angeles, California. She is fluent in English, German, Hindi and also semi-fluent in French.
Why this name?
She kept her name literally while traveling in a Rickshaw. Knowing the fact that there are tons of Rickshawala’s and no Rickshawali is what inspired her to start her YouTube page. Her ultimate goal is to humor individuals and make them laugh wholeheartedly.
Anisha strongly desires to inspire the Indian youth to be strong, confident and work hard towards achieving their dream. She wants to make people around her laugh and wants to portray that even girls can be chill and can accomplish everything they dream of if they put their will and determination into it strongly. She creates all her content for all the 10 to 35-year olds.

Videos are a good means to spread the message
Anisha strongly believes that one way to break such taboos is by actively talking about it in the area. We need to make it a part of our daily routine so that it cannot be considered as a taboo anymore.
Her advice to young and new YouTubers
She strongly emphasizes that you shouldn’t wait and should always go for it. If someone has something interesting to share then they should always grab a phone and make a video that instant.
