A L Nitin Kumar, Director
A dream and Vision welded with passion, hard work and perseverance makes it a reality.
After completing his MBA, Nitin instead of treading the well worn path traveled by others, struck out on his own path... a path that allowed him not only to see the world with his own eyes, but made millions of viewers to watch and enjoy the experiences thru his travel show Vihari. While many people dream of traveling to new places, not many can go on those journeys - so Nitin's idea of a show that can bring those experiences to the living room of millions of households was born. In 2002, he setup Tripadaya Innovation and Marketing Pvt Ltd and after many months of planning, hard work and effort his dream became a reality and thus was born Vihari - The Traveller - a path-breaking show on travel and tourism which was a first in the annals of the Telugu Television history. Since then Vihari has been on Television without a break for over 7 years now and is still going strong. It is a record that has been unmatched by any other TV show
Nitin apart from producing Vihari also directed it as well. With his uncompromising attitude towards creating a quality product, he put no restrictions on the budget for the travel show, a thing unheard of for a travel show, especially considering the nascent stage that the Telugu TV industry was in back in the early 2000's. his focus and continuous oversight of all the stages of production and direction as well, ensured that the best talent was always involved with making of the travel show. Even after seven years of leading the show, Nitin still looks forward to taking the show to newer and better places - with an enthusiasm that remains as strong as the day he launched the show.
