Nikhil and Sudheer Varma

Posani Krishna Murali and Rao Ramesh are on board to play supporting roles 

Hans Talkies was the first to report that Nikhil Siddhartha will be teaming up with good friend Sudheer Varma again for a new film. To this end, the latest we hear is the feature will be a mystery thriller. “It’s an action-thriller to be shot in places like Rajamahendravaram and Kakinada.

Sudheer is also keen on capturing the landscapes that follow these places. It will roll in September second week and the plan is to shoot it at a stretch,” confirmed a source close to the unit.

The source added that Sudheer is keen on giving a slight makeover to Nikhil. “The actor will wrap up his under-shoot film ‘Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada’ with ‘Tiger’ director VI Anand this month-end, post which he will sit down with Sudheer and go for a slight makeover.”

We also hear the heroine is yet to be finalised. “Sudheer has a couple of options in mind but is yet to zero in on the leading lady. However, Posani Krishna Murali and Rao Ramesh are on board to play supporting roles.”      - NR
