Young actress Samyuktha Hegde, who won a Filmfare in the category of Best Supporting role in her debut film Kirik Party, will reprise her role in the Telugu remake of the film. The Telugu remake of Kirik Party will feature actor Nikhil in the lead role which was originally played by Rakshit Shetty. With this remake, Samyuktha will make her debut in Telugu cinema as well and hopes to make the best use of it. “The makers liked my performance in the original and thus choose to cast me in the remake as well. I’m thrilled to be breaking into Tollywood and I want to give my 100 per cent,” Samyuktha Hegde had recently said.
Chandoo Mondeti and Sudheer Varma are working with the director Sharan Koppishetty and are ensuring that the story is more suitable to the Telugu audiences. Chandoo Mondeti, Sudheer Varma and actor Nikhil Siddhartha share a close binding since the actor has acted in both their films – Karthikeya and Swamy Ra Ra respectively. And reports are also doing rounds that Nikhil and Chandoo Mondeti might team up again for a film which will be produced by top producer Dil Raju.

“After several talks with Dil Raju, both Chandoo and Nikhil have come on board for this film, which will go on floors in 2018. The producer is happy with the script and is excited to be teaming up with the youngsters,” a source close to the producer had said recently. Chandoo Mondeti also has ‘Savyasachi’ under his belt with Akkineni Naga Chaitanya in the lead role which will go on shooting floors soon. Dil Raju also will be producing Mahesh Babu’s next film after ‘Bharath Ane Nenu’ along with Aswini Dutt which will be directed by Vamshi Paidipally.
Nikhil’s last release, Keshava, witnessed a mediocre response from the viewers. However, Nikhil was much appreciated for his performance in the film and Sudheer Varma was lauded for his screenplay. The film was the second time that Sudheer Varma and Nikhil Siddhartha collaborated after having previously worked on Swamy Ra Ra.
Prior to Keshava, Nikhil tasted huge success in Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada which was directed by Vi Anand. The film was a supernatural-romantic thriller and starred Hebah Patel, Avika Gor and Nandita Swetha besides Nikhil Siddhartha. Nikhil has had an inconsistent run in the initial stage of her career before striking back with Swamy Ra Ra and tasting success. And since then, Nikhil has had a great run in his career.
Interestingly, Nikhil recently found himself amidst a funny incident when news of he getting engaged to a Hyderabad based girl but the engagement was called off later. Nikhil reacted to this strongly and had said, “First of all, I was never engaged. There was no December wedding planned, so where’s the question of it being called off? he has been looking for the perfect girl for me for a while now, and so, she’s even met a lot of families. But that doesn’t mean anything is finalised or that my marriage was fixed. In our culture, it’s common for parents to meet families of eligible girls. I think this is how rumours of my engagement and wedding came about. it’s sad when people randomly pick names of girls and publish it without even verifying.”
