The famous artist Yuri Nikulin lived all his life with his only wife – Tatyana. The couple had one child – son Maxim. After the death of the actor, his heir took over as head of the Nikulin Circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard, a position he has held for 28 years. Although, according to him, no one believed that he would cope with the work. He was given a maximum of a year and either he leaves or everything falls apart.
“I know that bets were made, they say, how long I will last in this position. Well, how about. Businessman, journalist, and here is the circus. Pessimists gave a year, optimists two or two and a half. Well, it’s been 28 years since I’ve been here. So far, everything is going well, ”Musk shared.
Nothing changes in the office where Yuri Nikulin sat for many years, no one occupies his desk, everything is left as if the artist had left for a while and will soon return and continue to lead his circus.
By the way, the grandchildren of the movie legend also continue the family business and also work in the institution. So, 36-year-old Yuri is the head of the advertising and special effects department.
But 31-year-old Maxim is responsible for international cooperation.
“We are one of the few circuses in the world that tries and continues to sew costumes individually for special shows. If we are talking about the famous Bouglion circus in Paris, then they do not have this. They don’t do anything special anymore. They take ready-made numbers with ready-made artists and costumes. Always being the best is not easy, but we prove it every year at festivals and with our programs, ”the celebrity grandson shares.
In the meantime, Nikulin’s relatives are talking, cinema fans are trying to catch in their appearance the resemblance to the famous artist. But, similar, perhaps, the eyes. “Something distant, Yuri has eyes and facial expressions of his grandfather”, “They all look alike but remotely”, “Yuri looks like a young Nikulin,” the audience notes.
Maxim Nikulin also has a daughter, but she has been living abroad for a long time.
