I then convinced my father to get me a new laptop for 'coding', but instead, I used to play games on it! I played a lot of GTA 5, which further piqued my interest in gaming, and that was the first time I decided to stream on YouTube.

A: I haven't thought about it, but one of my goals is that my name "Nischay Malhan" becomes a brand, and also a side business from where I have an additional source of income. I just want my life to be a little chill in the upcoming years, as it is hectic for me to perform so many tasks at the same time.
This involves posting around four videos per week, and maintaining both my channels. Along with that, I also manage my social media handles: Instagram and Twitter, and even reply to my business mails.
I don't have a dedicated team for all these tasks. I want to be a little free over the next few years, and think I will post two videos per week.
Q: What question do fans ask you the most, and what is the answer?
A: My fans ask me these two questions the most:
Q1: How much do you earn?
A1: The answer is variable, as income from YouTube is always fluctuating, unlike any other job. There are times when it is very good, but there are also months when it is not. There are many factors such as the CPM rate at Adsense. For example, the rates for ads are high during holidays.
But all I can say is I earn more than at my previous job, and that's the reason I am a full-time YouTuber. Ignoring the monetary aspect, I love my job as I like to create videos, and also, I'm a bit of an introvert and like staying at home.
Q2: Who is your girlfriend? Do you have a girlfriend?
A2: The answer is NO, currently, I don't have a girlfriend, but I'd like to recall a popular proverb: "himmate marda madade khuda". I mean Apna Time Aaega!Published 14 Sep 2020, 19:09 IST
