Hansika Motwani hasn’t been seen in Telugu movies for a long time now and has mostly appeared in Kollywood. Although she was one of the top stars for a long time in Tollywood, for unknown reasons the actress hasn’t done many films here lately. And looks like the actress may soon make a comeback. According to latest reports, Hansika has been approached to play the female lead role in actor Nithiin’s upcoming film with Venky Kudumula which is rumoured to have been titled Bheeshma. However, the makers are yet to confirm both the developments and an official note from them is expected to come out soon. Hansika was last seen in Gopichand starrer Goutham Nanda which went on to become a failure at the box office.
In Tamil, Hansika was last seen in Gulebakavali which starred Prabhu Dhevaa in the lead role. The film had a decent opening but failed to impress audience eventually turning out to be a dud. Hansika has couple of projects lined up in Tamil which includes Thuppakki Munnai with Vikram Prabhu and an untitled film with Atharvaa. Thuppakki Munnai is written and being directed by Dinesh Selvaraj. The untitled film with Atharvaa is being directed by Sam Anton.
On the other hand, Nithiin was last seen in Chal Mohan Ranga which was directed by Krishna Chaitanya and produced by Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram Srinivas jointly. A rom-com, Chal Mohan Ranga received mixed reviews upon opening and eventually faded out at the box office. Bheeshma, the rumoured title, will be directed by Venky Kudumula who who shot to fame with Naga Shaurya and Rashmika Mandanna starrer Chalo.
The film had a good run at the box office and the director was well appreciated for the humour-filled episodes in the film. The film was produced by Naga Shaurya’s mother, Usha Mulpuri, after finding it hard to find a producer.
