It's been an incredible journey of 10 years for young and handsome hero Nikhil Siddhartha in Telugu film industry. From super hit Happy Days in 2007 to killing hit Keshava in 2017, Nikhil invited all the directors from Sekhar Kammula to Sudheer Varma for the cake cutting function yesterday. He also threw a lavish party for his directors and also for media persons.
Nikhil started his journey with the successful film Happy Days where he played the role of Rajesh, an Engineering college student and son of an MLA. In fact, director Sekhar Kammula was stunned with Nikhil's energy levels while shooting for the film. Later, Nikhil proved his mass stamina with Parasuram directed 'Yuvatha'. He then introduced a wannabe director Chinni Krishna with Veedu Theda.
When Nikhil was in tough phase with flops, Sudheer Varma directed Swamy Ra Ra provided him much needed break. Post this film, he never looked back. Chandu Mondeti directed Karthikeya, Karthik Ghattamaneni directed Surya Vs Surya, VI Anand's Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada and his most recent outing Keshava directed by Sudheer Varma are of different genres, but successful films.
Nikhil indeed gave life to many young and debutante directors. What's more, he has become care of address for directors with unique and experimental concepts. When almost all young heroes are not willing to come out of safe zone by doing only formulaic and commercial films, Nikhil is surprising audiences every time by picking different films.
Besides all the directors who worked with Nikhil, the event was also attended by mega hero Allu Sirish, actors Sathya and Praveen. Let's wish Nikhil all the best for his future endeavors.
