In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Nikhil tried his luck in politics. He lost to Sumalatha Ambareesh, widow of former Karnataka actor Ambareesh, in the Mandya constituency.
Nikhil, 30, is a Kannada film actor who made his debut in the bilingual movie Jaguar in 2016.
The actor will soon start shooting for his new movie Production No-1.
In addition to acting in movies, Nikhil is also actively participating in politics by meeting people and visiting several places.
