Princess Kimaya, illusionist, 14
Currently studying in Class 9, Kimaya Deshmukh made her first public appearance as an illusionist
when she was just two-and-a-half years old. For father Satish Deshmukh, a well-known illusionist of
international repute, her first performance was accidental as well as magical. “She just happened to
be there. I had never taught her any tricks, she learnt them on her own by just seeing me practice,”
From then on, Kimaya mastered her skills and performed numerous shows all over India and
internationally as well. A born performer, the 14-year-old has proven her prowess as an illusionist for
over 10 years, but feels there’s still a lot to learn and prove.
She has stopped her solo shows since the last two years to focus more on her studies. But whenever
she gets time, she accompanies her father to his shows.
“My entry into illusion was due to luck, but I always wanted to be different and do things that were
different from what other kids did. I still feel the same. But after some time I started to feel a lot of
pressure. And that’s when I decided to take a break and focus on my studies. Today I am not sure if I
want to continue being an illusionist. It was something that I liked doing, and I still love it.
Being able to surprise others is amazing. I have learnt a lot performing on stage in front of thousands
of people. And I must say, being an illusionist is magical and uncommon.
My dad has been my biggest teacher. And he told me that I should be something on my own as well.
I haven’t decided what I want to be. Today I am an illusionist, tomorrow I could be an astronaut. As
my dad says, ‘The world is open for all’.
