After Jr NTR, Nithin, will it be Nikhil Siddharth next?

First it was Junior NTR. Then it was young hero Nithiin. Will Kartikeya -2 hero Nikhil Siddharth be the next? This is the hot buzz in the political circle. The BJP top leaders had one-on-one meetings with leaders like Amit Shah and JP Nadda recently. The rumour mill is abuzz with the story that hero Nikhil Siddharth could soon meet the BJP top brass when they visit Hyderabad next time.

Sources say that Karthikeya 2’s producer Abhishek Kapoor is quite close to the BJP establishment. In fact, he had produced the top-grosser film Kashmir Files, which highlighted the plight of the Kashmiri Hindus and their exodus from the trouble-torn valley.  Highly placed sources said that the BJP is trying to influence Nikhil to meet the BJP leaders.

Sources claim that the BJP has lined up several other film personalities in recent times. It is arranging one-on-one meetings with these leaders. In fact, there are rumours that both NTR and Nikhil could even campaign for the party in the two Telugu states in the next elections.  Nikhil’s Kartikeya-2 is a runaway hit and did great business in North India too. Hence, the party is also trying to rope in this young hero.

Nikhil has made a name for himself through hit films like Swami Rara, Happy Days, Arjun Suravaram, Kartikeya 1 and Kartikeya 2.  He had dealt with social issues such as fake certificate rackets in Arjun Suravaram. Nikhil, interestingly, is believed to be a relative of TRS minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav.
