Niharica Raizada was raised in Luxembourg to Indian parents. She runs her acting ambitions in parallel with her translational medicine life.

Having grown up in Luxembourg, attending the European School and the Conservatoire for dance, Niharica Raizada went on to study at Imperial College, London, and Johns Hopkins in New York on a Fulbright scholarship.

Her passion for cinema grew in London and she went on to also take lessons in improvisation when in New York Film Academy.

With a one-way ticket to Mumbai, she started applying for parts, thousands of parts. With a success rate of 5-10%, her multiple languages, titles of Miss India UK 2010 and Miss Indian Worldwide runner up 2011, it shows how hard it is to pierce the world of cinema.

So far, Niharica has 16 films to her name. The last one was Total Dhamaal (already released) and Sooryavanshi is waiting to be released (cinemas have been shut in India due to COVID-19)
