Young actor Nikhil struggled for success before the release of Swamy Ra Ra. Though he caught attention with his debut movie Happy Days, it took him some time to prove himself as an actor. His first super hit was Swamy Ra Ra directed by debutant Sudheer Varma after which he scored his career best with Karthikeya. Chandoo Mondeti directed the movie which established a decent market for Nikhil in Tollywood. Swathi Reddy played the female lead in both the movies. When Tollywood has been looking towards some super hit movies, Nikhil scored his third hit in a row with Surya Vs Surya which introduced cinematographer Karthik Ghattamaneni as the director. The movie discussed an innovative concept which made the audience fall flat for the film.
After scoring three back to back hits, Nikhil is much choosy and he has been quite careful about his upcoming movies. As usual he has given his nod for Uday Nandhanavam, a debutant for his next film. The movie has been titled as Shankarabharanam which completed shoot recently. The movie has been in news ever since it has been launched as the makers have been promoting the movie at regular intervals.
