Nikesha Patel joins Arav's Market Raja MBBS
Kavya Thapar, who was last seen in the Telugu film, Ee Maaya Peremito, makes her Tamil debut as the other heroine
We had earlier reported that director Saran, known for his hit films like Amarkkalam, Gemini, and Vasool Raja MBBS, is all set to make a comeback with Market Raja MBBS, which has Bigg Boss fame Arav playing the lead for the first time. Now, the latest update on this project is that Nikesha Patel, who was last seen in Bhaskar Oru Rascal, will be playing one of the female leads.
"Nikesha plays Stephanie, a progressive Anglo-Indian girl, who fronts a music band. She is a feminist, and a bit domineering. She will lock horns with Arav's character, and contribute to an important plot twist in the film," says Saran.
In a statement, Nikesha said that her role is extremely fashionable and glamorous in a way she has never done before. "I play the love interest of Arav and also have a separate story. I've already finished one schedule and am waiting for the next."
Kavya Thapar, who was last seen in the Telugu film, Ee Maaya Peremito, is making her Tamil debut as the other heroine.
Market Raja MBBS, which will also star Radikaa as a ruthless matriarch, features a large ensemble cast that includes Rohini, Nassar, Hareesh Peradi, Yogi Babu and Munishkanth. While the music is composed by Simon K King of Sathya fame, Saran's brother KV Guhan will be handling the cinematography.
Nikesha, meanwhile, has recently started shooting for Ezhil's GV Prakash-starrer, in which she plays an IT professional.
