Nikesha Patel had two releases in 2016, although both films did mediocre business at the box-office. Now, the actress looks forward to a great year as she has already signed two multilingual films.
The Karai Oram actress will be a part of the remake of Malayalam film, 100 Degree Celsius, and Guntur Talkies 2. Opening up about her role in 100 Degree Celsius, she elaborates, “I play an IT professional, a simple South Indian woman. This film has five female leads and I am expecting it to be a fun experience. I will start shooting for the film by the end of January.” Directed by Mithran Jawahar, this film also has Raai Laxmi and Anu Emmanuel as part of the cast. Shriya Saran is rumoured to be roped in as well.
In the meantime, the actress was considered as Jai’s pair in an upcoming film. “A few months back, director Hashim Maniker was in talks with me for a film with Jai as the hero. But, I never got the time to sign on the dotted lines as I got busy with other projects,” she explains.
Nikesha is also part of a trilingual titled Guntur Talkies 2, directed by Raj Kumar. “I get to share screen space with Sunny Leone in this film. I will be sporting half-sarees throughout. It’ll be challenging to me as I have never been this glamorous in my previous ventures,” she quips.
