Nikhil Kumaraswamy to star in Vijay Kumar Konda’s directorial
The bilingual film, made in Kannada and Telugu, will be jointly produced by Lahari Music and T-Series
Nikhil Kumaraswamy, who recently confirmed his association with Pailwaan-director S Krishna, is said to have given the green signal to another project, which will take off after Sankranti.
Cinema Express had reported earlier that the actor is coming together with Telugu director Vijay Kumar Konda, which now stands confirmed. The director of films such as Okka Laila Kosam and Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinda will now make his Kannada debut with the commercial entertainer. The film will also be made in Telugu.
Lahari Music is jointly producing this film with T-Series. The yet-to-be-titled film will be the latter’s first venture in Kannada. Nikhil’s first film Jaquar, which was dubbed and released in Hindi, did very well in the North Indian market, and that is one of the reasons producer Bhushan Kumar of T-Series wanted to collaborate with the actor, a source said.
The makers, who are in the process of finalising the cast, are looking for trained actors. Apart from Nikhil Kumarswamy and director Vijay Kumar Konda, music director Arjun Janya has also been brought on board.
