Nithin out, Nikhil In!

Nithin out, Nikhil In!

Despite having faced many troubles while shooting for Arjun Suravaram, Nikhil has scored success at box-office and he's now got a bigger reason to celebrate.

Director Surya Pratap, former assistant of Sukumar, made a stunning debut with 'Kumari 21F'. Sukumar himself has penned the script of Kumari and yet again, Surya Pratap is banking on his Guru Sukumar for his new film with actor Nikhil Siddhartha. It was officially announced that Bunny Vas will bankroll it under GA2 Pictures banner.

But, hero Nithin was initial selection for this story. The makers of the film decided to change lead actor and it has favoured Nikhil, who's striked gold with Arjun Suravaram.

The reason for Nithin to leave this project was not disclosed but it could be him being too busy with his ongoing film 'Beeshma' and an untitled movie committed for Chandrasekhar Yeleti. But, no official reason was given by him. Musician Gopi Sundar is likely to score audio tunes for this untitled project
