Nikesha Patel, who made her debut opposite Pawan Kalyan in the 2010 Telugu film Puli, is looking to change her career graph which has since been filled with a string of failures. The British-born Indian model has no less than six films lined up for release this year, including the upcoming Tamil film, Market Raja MBBS, directed by Saran, which is also set to mark the debut of Bigg Boss-fame Arav. "Aside from Saran sir, I also have films with directors Ezhil and Kasthuri Raja," she says.

Nikesha, who will be sharing screen space with the other female lead in Market Raja MBBS, says she has no qualms about doing so. "It's true that with limited screen space, standing out becomes a challenge. But it's one I relish."

The actor is quite pragmatic about her past failures. "These things happen. Honestly, the payment was good and the scripts to my liking, which is why I chose to do those films. Their fate was not in my hands."

She's quite complacent about her career going forward as well. "I am not getting paired with top heroes anymore, but that's fine and expected, given there's a new heroine being introduced in every third film. The best way to deal with this is to stay grounded and make the most of what comes my way."
