It wasn't until Nitin Madan learnt of a scientific study, which established that people suffering from boredom were right up there with smokers and the gluttonous, likely to kick the bucket before their time, that he realized he needed to take his artistic passions to the next level. The realization was that he had been taking reality more seriously than necessary and once out of its bind, he found that life offered much to make him curious.
The disengagement from reality allowed Nitin to believe that he had more going for him than just being a Palindrome*. Having a name that could be spelt the same backwards and forwards, had always been a successful party trick. So it wasn't much of a surprise that he began to identify himself with the word, telling people that he was a palindrome, leading many to believe that he was a variety of a brainless Alaskan bird (presumably on account of the word including the name of a former Governor of The Last Frontier state).
A Filmmaker and Writer by training from that esteemed bastion of pricey education, Columbia University, and an Actor by habit, Nitin has worked in theater, tv and film and is a member of SAG-AFTRA.
As a Producer and Director, he has found his calling in both documentary and fiction. He has chronicled artists, including the inimitable New York based Russell Connor; India's greatest painter, the late MF Husain; and the Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier.
His foray into narrative features as Producer garnered him acclaim for the live action/ animation pic, “Colin Hearts Kay”.
Nitin Madan can be seen on TV and Streaming in NBC's long running "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", the Netflix original series "Brown Nation", and "Metro Park" streaming on Eros Now. His work in the independent feature film, "I'll Meet You There" received great acclaim. The film by Writer/ Director, Iram Parveen Bilal, was an Official Selection in the SXSW 2020 Narrative Film Competition.
Nitin Madan has written on such diverse subjects as Film, Science, Wine, Cigars, Dance, as well as Children's Stories. He is currently writing his autobiography titled, “Genetic Garbage”, much to the dismay of his kindly gene donors.
*palindrome, for those who still dont get it, is a word that is spelt the same, backwards and forwards. For example, N-I-T-I-N!
