Nischay Malhan (birthday: November 14), better known online as Triggered Insaan, is a New Delhi-based Indian YouTuber and PUBG live-streamer known for his commentaries, roasts, rants and reaction videos on his YouTube channel, often revolving around Bollywood and Indian media, as well as social media influencers.
He also has a gaming channel called Live Insaan where he uploads gaming Videos like PUBG, Minecraft And He Used To Upload Getting Over It. He is credited for the popularisation of the famous Hindi dialogue "Oh Bhai... Maaro Mujhe Maaro! [Oh Man! Beat Me, Beat Me!].
Nischay was born in Delhi, though the year is unknown. He has a younger brother, Abhishek Malhan. He used to be an intelligent student in school and would always come exactly third in his standard every year. After passing tenth standard, he became so obsessed due to lack of physical labor that he was in a complete depression for the next two years (eleventh and twelfth standard). In his hostel during his college life, he credits his roommate to help him come out of the severe depression. He completed the Engineering Degree, and went on to work at a job, but he didn't like his colleagues who taunted him since he would watch videos of other YouTubers while eating during the lunch.
He left the job and started making small videos at his friend's house while lying to his parents about him going to job everyday. This continued until his videos went viral and he told his parents that he wants to be a YouTuber. After that, he continued to post videos on YouTube and gradually became a successful and established YouTuber.
Before coming to the name Triggered Insaan, he first named his channel Yes-Yes-Bhai. That is because his name Nischay translates to obviously in English. After that, he named it It's Nischay. But he thought that people won't be able to pronounce his name properly because in Hindi, his name is pronounced "Nishchay", but the priest who named him said that two h's in his name would be odd and changed it to one h. and he changed it to Triggered Insaan. He would watch another YouTuber who had the word "Insaan" in their name and the word Triggered came from the fact that his father would be easily angry on him or get Triggered. This was the decision of his final name.
Triggered Insaan first started collaborating with Mythpat on April 26, 2020, in the game Grand Theft Auto 5, where they played online together completing fictional missions. The series was successful, and had two more episodes - 3 and 4.
On June 14, 2020, Mythpat uploaded a video titled "PHOTOSHOPPING INDIAN YOUTUBERS", where he messed with the faces of different Indian YouTubers, which included Nischay. Mythpat had drawn a pineapple design across his face, and after showing it to Nischay, he conveyed a thumbs up. Later in the game of Minecraft, Mythpat mysteriously lost his pet Llama. Involving Nischay in it, the llama was "confirmed" to be "kidnapped" by Nischay, and this gave rise to a brand new series.
