After the success of Arjun Suravaram, actor Nikhil Siddartha has signed two films. One is Karthiekya 2 and the other one is 18 Pages. Karthikeya 2 already went on floors earlier this year. 18 Pages got launched but are yet to go on the floors. Its shoot was actually supposed to get started by now but the coronavirus pandemic has ruined the makers' plans. However, the team is working more on the pre-production before the shooting gets started. The latest we hear that the makers have roped in actress Siddhi Idnani as the lead actress in this movie.
Siddhi Idnani made her debut with the film Jamba Lakadi Pamba. She later appeared in the 2019 film Prema Katha Chitram 2. Both movies failed to perform well. Thus, 18 Pages will be a big project for this promising actress. Currently, the talks are going on with her and an official announcement will get made once she signs the dotted lines.
18 Pages is being directed by Surya Pratap Palnati. He helmed the films Kumari 21f and Darshakudu in the past. The story of this film got penned by acclaimed director Sukumar. It is being produced jointly by GA2 Pictures and Sukumar Writings. Allu Aravind is presenting this film. This is the first film of Nikhil which is being backed up by Allu Aravind. Gopi Sunder is composing the music for it. It may hit the screens in early 2021. Stay tuned for more updates on it.
