Nishvika Naidu backs out of Shashank’s Upendra-starrer film

Shashank’s upcoming project with Upendra has undergone a script change, leading to the exit of the film’s heroine, Nishvika Naidu. Earlier, the team officially confirmed that the latter would be a part of the film, which also stars Rukmini Vasanth of Birbal Trilogy fame.

With the pre-production work underway, the makers are getting ready to start the project from February-end once Upendra completes his schedules for Buddhivantha 2 and Ravi Chandra. In addition to the changes in the script, Nishvika has decided to back out due to the delay in the shooting and date issues. 

Nishvika is currently busy with a line up of films, including Gentleman, which will be released this week. This will be followed by Ramarjuna, starring Anish Tejeshwar, for which she has a few days of filming left. The actor will later be joining the Gaalipata 2 team. That film, directed by Yogaraj Bhat and starring Ganesh, Diganth, and Pawan Kumar, features her in a pivotal role.
