It is said that Nanda Kishore is keen to bring on board the Jaguar and Rider hero for a specific role, for which he is said to have approached the actor. Our source also tells us that the director has had rounds of discussions with Nikhil, and the latter is said to have given the green signal.  

If so, the combination of Shivarajkumar-Nikhil will be a first. However, an official confirmation on this is awaited from the team’s end, which might happen on April 24, which is the late Dr Rajkumar’s birth anniversary. 

Shivarajkumar is looking forward to the release of A Harsha’s Bhajarangi 2, while also shooting for Vijay Milton’s Shivappa. As for Nikhil, the actor is currently shooting for Rider, and is yet to announce his next. On the other hand, director Nanda Kishore, besides working on Dubaari with Dhruva Sarja, is also be directing a film for actor Shreyas Manju.
