Nikita Tewani

"Most notable among the supporting actors are...and Nikita Tewani as Laila’s daughter, who grows into a vibrant pre-teen." -Huffington Post (A Thousand Splendid Suns)

"Rather, what makes “A Thousand Splendid Suns” feel like a fairy tale is the economy, the expressivity of the adaptation. Laila, Mariam, daughter Aziza (Nikita Tewani) and Laila’s and Mariam’s mothers (both played by Denmo Ibrahim) aren’t drawn with the quirks and tics of realism; they’re defined by their actions in the wake of an explosion, at gunpoint or at the mercy of a stranger. They’re fully wrought individuals with distinct flaws, who change how they think as years of abuse age them, but they’re also everywomen who cope, as anyone might, with impossible situations." -SF Chronicle (A Thousand Splendid Suns)

"Also excellent are Nikita Tewani as Laila’s daughter, Aziza, and a very young Neel Noronha as her son, Zalmai." - Theatrestorm (A Thousand Splendid Suns)

"Nikita Tewani (Nasrin), is a versatile actress able to play the clown and the unraveling teenager with brilliant skill." - NY Theatre Guide (The Fall)

"Specific praise to...Nikita Tewani as a powerful, conflicted Nasrin" - Theatre is Easy (The Fall)

"Strong performances by the protagonists Deeksha Ketkar, Ram Kanneganti, and Nikita Tewani, augmented the already strong storyline of the play." - Brown Girl Magazine (A Muslim in the Midst)

"...his wife Priya (played with a steely but vulnerable core by Nikita Tewani)" - Theatre Reviews Limited (A Muslim in the Midst)
