Like his father, character actor Pankaj Dheer, Nikitin Dheer too is happy essaying negative roles. After making his debut in Jodhaa Akbar, Nikitin was seen essaying grey shades in Mission Istaanbul and Ready. He recently featured in Dabangg 2. He idolises Salman Khan who had worked with his father in Tumko Na Bhool Payenge and Jagruti.
He says, “Working with Salman Khan in Ready and Dabangg 2 has been the most memorable experience for me. Salman is like a mentor to me.”
As both love to flaunt their bods, they would work out together for almost two to three hours with Salman’s personal gym equipments during the shoot.
The actor adds, “Salman would have homecooked food on the sets and made sure that I would also have the nutritious stuff. When not shooting, we would often go for long walks and talk about everything right from food, to work outs and the movies.”
Nikitin is presently shooting for Rohit Shetty’s upcoming film in which he essays the lead villain.
