Nischay Malhan – Youtube Journey
Nischay Malhan aka Triggered Insaan carried a passion for making videos since childhood. So we can say that Nischay Malhan’s age never came as a barrier in his Youtube aspirations. Even during his childhood, he shot several short videos and clips on his parents’ phone camera. As he grew up, his passion for Youtube made him quit his well-paying job as a CS engineer.
The Indian Youtuber didn’t disclose the same information to his parents and began filming clips at a friend’s place, all the while lying to them that he was working every day. This went on until he grabbed some fame and ended up telling his parents about his passion for Youtube. While they didn’t support his decision at all, this social media influencer continued his video uploading spree on You Tube.
Leaving his Job for Youtube
Malhan was placed at a company in his last year of engineering and was offered an annual salary of Rs. 18 Lakhs. After graduating, he was required to complete a 6-month internship, but he preferred to work on YouTube.
Nischay Malhan’s first day at the internship was a disaster, as his manager reprimanded him for playing a DOTA game video during his lunch break. And as a result of this, he despised his internship. He then sought to persuade his father to let him quit his internship and work full-time on YouTube, but his father refused because he wasn’t generating money with YouTube at the moment.
He also found a job as a web developer in a Sarita Vihar firm. Nischay used to drive four hours to and from work every day, leaving him with little to no time to work on his YouTube channel.
He had barely 20,000 subscribers at the time while working part time on the given channel. Nischay Malhan’s parents advised him to keep the internship and work part-time on his YouTube channel. Yet, given his passion and commitment for Youtube, he left this job after six months to focus completely on his passion. And with his dedication, he succeeded in getting more than a million subscribers very quickly.
Launching his First Youtube Channel
Nischay Malhan launched his first channel with the name Yes-Yes-Bhai before settling on Triggered Insaan. That’s because his given name, Nischay, means “obvious” in English. Nischay then chose the name ‘It’s Nischay’. Again, he thought that others would be unable to pronounce his name correctly (as it’s called “Nishchay” in Hindi).
Besides, the priest who named him decided that two h’s in his name would be weird, so he altered it to Triggered Insaan. He’d watch another Indian YouTuber whose name included the term “Insaan,” and the phrase “Triggered” arose from the fact that his father used to get easily angry or Triggered. This was the name he chose in the end.
Nischay Malhan’s star celeb status is clearly evident from the huge subscribers list on his channel Triggered Insaan (more than 14.6 million subscribers). Besides, he receives an average of 500k likes and 1.5k comments on each of his videos on the same channel, making his net worth cross millions.
Triggered Insaan collaborating with Mythpat
On April 26, 2020, Triggered Insaan and Mythpat collaborated in the game Grand Theft Auto 5, where they played online and completed fictional missions. The series was a hit and came up with two additional episodes.
Mythpat uploaded a video named “PHOTOSHOPPING INDIAN YOUTUBERS” on June 14, 2020, in which he messed with the faces of many Indian YouTubers, including Nischay. He then sketched a pineapple image across his face and gave Nischay a thumbs up after displaying it to him. Mythpat mysteriously lost his pet Llama later in the Minecraft game. The llama was “verified” to have been “kidnapped” by Nischay, resulting in the creation of a new series.
Live Insaan Youtube channel
Nischay Malhan had a keen interest in gaming since his childhood days, and played almost every game on the PlayStation 1 and 2. Things went to another level during his third year in college, when he saw one of his seniors buying a gaming laptop on which he used to play Grand Theft Auto.
Nischay then persuaded his father for a new laptop. While he bought Malhan one to aid his studies, this ‘Triggered Insaan’ instead spent most of his time playing GTA 5 on it. This eventually peaked his passion in gaming even more, and he thought of launching second channel, ‘Live Insaan’.
The channel currently has more than 8.22 million subscribers and Malhan has posted around 270 videos and live streams on this channel till now. This, along with many other aspects, confirms Nischay Malhan’s star celeb status.

Struggles with Hypogonadism
Nishchay Malhan came up as a shy and introvert person since his adolescence. At the time when Nischay Malhan’s age was just 9 years, one of his uncles mocked him for his appearance during a wedding ceremony. This made him lose his self-belief, and he was eventually diagnosed with Hypogonadism.

Such incidents continued, and while looking at few of the Nischay Malhan’s photo, his maths teacher made fun of his appearance. Given such situations, he stopped going to school regularly, thereby affecting his school time badly.
It was not just about Hypogonadism at the time, Nischay further came up as an adult with obesity. All these situations eventually added on to his stress and anxiety. Luckily, his friends and roommate Akash, who was in his second year of engineering, assisted him in overcoming this sadness.
Nischay Malhan started to accept the situation and began seeking medical treatment for Hypogonadism while in his third year of engineering and eventually recovered. Later, he began working out at a gym, which assisted him in losing weight and becoming fit.
