Nikhil Siddharth is currently busy with his upcoming film, Mudra. He is playing the role of a journalist in the investigative thriller which is inspired from the Tamil film, Kanithan. His previous film, Kirrak Party, was also a remake of the Kannada film, Kirrik Party. Nikhil said in an earlier interview that he was not doing back to back remakes, and Mudra is just inspired from Kanithan. He has done many commercial films in his early career and he is careful with script selection since last few years.
As per the latest reports, Nikhil has signed his next film to be directed by a debutante, Kishen Katta. It is said that Nikhil was quite impressed with the young director’s script and has instantly agreed to be a part of the film. Kishen Katta has done a few short films in the past. More details on this project will be revealed by the team very soon. Apart from that, there are rumours that Nikhil signed a film under the direction of Avasarala Srinivas. The script narrated by Avasarala Srinivas is said to be an youthful entertainer while the one under the direction of Kishen Katta is going to be an experimental film.
