Nikhil is back in form post the success of Arjun Suravaram and is now very carefully planning projects. In this process, he has signed a film in the direction of Pratap.
The inside update is that this script was actually meant for hero Raj Tharun. But as he is in a flop streak, Sukumar and co gave that film to Nikhil so that he can bring a market to the film.
This is disappointing as Raj Tharun used to be a star hero kind of space with back to back projects. But now, he is lonely and has a Dil Raju film called Iddari Lokam Okkate for a release to save his career.
