Swathi gained attention with her TV show Colors and became popular as Colors Swathi. She made her debut into silver screen with Ashta Chamma and has been a part of many successful films. However, the offers declined for her and she eventually got married and took a break from acting career. Now the latest buzz is that she is making a comeback with the film Karthikeya 2. It is a sequel to the 2014 blockbuster Karthikeya which cemented the dwindling career of Nikhil in industry and introduced Chandoo Mondeti as a director. Swathi played female lead in the film and her character, Valli, received accolades from the audience.
Nikhil and Chandoo Mondeti have already confirmed Karthikeya 2 and the pre-production work is in progress. According to reports, the film won’t be a successor to the story of Karthikeya but a different story with similar characters. Swathi is not playing the female lead in the film but a significant supporting character with enough screen time to leave an impression. The time is yet to finalize the lead actress. The film has considerable expectations as the first film has good following and the market of Nikhil improved after the success of his latest film Arjun Suravaram.
