Nikki Galrani, who is considered a lucky actress in Mollywood, is on a packed schedule. The Kannada actor, who starred in a couple of Kannada films early in her career, is now too busy. She has quit filmmaker Nanda Kishore’s upcoming Kannada project with Pradeep as she is currently busy with Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu films. Flooded with offers in the South, now she has to carefully pore through her schedule to accommodate any more projects till December this year.
She is noted for her roles in 1983 and Vellimoonga. The actor shot to fame in Tamil with the successful Darling early this year.
Initially, Nikki was glad when she was approached for Kishore’s project. But unfortunately she is not in a position to accept because of date clashes. “I have given the same dates to a Tamil and a Malayalam film,” says Nikki, who is currently juggling between three other languages in South India.
“My schedule is full till December,” she adds.
Nikki was previously offered Victory made by Nanda Kishore, which she could not accept. “Back then, I was yet to enter the industry,” she says. However, according to the actor, the only reason for her not to take up films in Kannada is because she is overcommitted.
Nikki adds that shuttling between cities is making it difficult for her to handle so much work across industries in the South.
“I could have managed if everything was happening in Bengaluru. But it becomes tedious to handle different projects and be in different cities,” she notes. Her upcoming release is Ko2 in Tamil and she is currently doing Kavalai Vendam with Jiiva along with Keerthi Suresh.
She also has a couple of projects in Malayalam and Telugu. “I am also looking forward to the release of Rudra Simhasanam and Krishnastami in Telugu,” she says. Nikki made her Tamil debut with the horror comedy opposite GV Prakash Kumar. She was recently seen in the film Yagavarayinum Naa Kaakka.
Nikki, who began her career in Malayalam films with 1983, has worked in a number of Kannada films like Ajith, Jamboo Savari and Siddhartha.
