We always desire to be famous on social media platforms. Well, it’s not an easy task to do but for some, it’s an inborn talent. Let’s introduce you to someone who has made a remarkable story on YouTube and has the best fanbase on the internet.
Meet ‘Captain Nick’ aka Niharicka, one of the most frank and honest YouTubers. She is simply hilarious and is among the few female Indian YouTubers who are making it every day in the otherwise male-dominated arena. She began her career as an intern in Radiocity 91.1 FM where she entertained the city of Mumbai for 6 months through her breakfast show ‘Kasa hai Mumbai’.
Later, she stepped into the social media platform by creating her own YouTube channel titled ‘Captain Nick’ where she successfully earned more than 190 million views through the means of her original comic sketches and characters along with challenges and humour vlogging.
She rounds up in the list of 15 most renowned female Indian YouTubers and her original hilarious videos make her very relatable to her growing fanbase. Her imagination began to find expression in her YouTube channel in 2012 after she had twiddled with Dubsmash as an opening for her amusing gift. With more than 1.89 million+ fan followers as of now, Niharicka Singh rules over YouTube with her very peculiar Captain Nick YouTube channel.
After her career at Radiocity 91.1 FM, she ventured into numerous fields. She did a print ad shoot for the Mukti Jewellers, followed by a cameo role in Zindagi Wins, a Bindass Channel’s show. She also fetched an opportunity to work in an ad film, Jai Hind starring actors like Raveena Tandon and Manoj Bajpaye. She also attended a few theatre workshops conducted by Mr Alok Ulfat.
Inspiration to start her own YouTube channel
She mentioned that her friends enjoyed her Dubsmash videos which she used to create out of the fun. They all encouraged her to create a YouTube channel and upload funny videos. That’s when she took the step and began her own humour channel on YouTube in 2016.
