Nikita's writing career began in the digital wings of agencies like Grey and Netbiz back when digital was still an "emerging medium".

Since then, she has written screenplay, fiction, poetry and non-fiction. Apart from editorial and leadership positions at Flickbay and the Festival Catalogue for MAMI's Mumbai Film Festival, she has also created content for Priyanka Chopra's website and Linkedin. She routinely takes on challenging work that involves copywriting, brand identity and corporate films.
