Nikesha Patel is a busy bee these days. After acting in Karai Oram, Narathan and Araku Road Lo in 2016, the actress will be juggling between the sets of three of her upcoming films in 2017. Incidentally, all the three films are going to be bilinguals and Nikesha Patel is thrilled to have bagged these author-backed roles.
One of the three films is a remake of a Malayalam film 100 Degree Celsius and Nikesha will be teaming up with Raai Laxmi, Shriya Saran and Anu Emmanuel. Directed by Mithran Jawahar, the film has Nikesha playing the role of an IT professional. Talking about her role, Nikesha said, “I play an IT professional, a simple South Indian woman. This film has five female leads and I am expecting it to be a fun experience. I will start shooting for the film by the end of January.”
Apart from this film, Nikesha will also be sharing screen space with Sunny Leone in Guntur Talkies 2, directed by Raj Kumar and she describes her role in the film as her most challenging so far. “I’ll be wearing half-sarees throughout the film. It’s the most challenging thing I’ve done so far as I’ve never played such a glamorous role in the past,” she said. Nikesha is also in talks with another Tamil film, to be directed by Hashim Maniker; however, she hasn’t signed the film yet. Looks like 2017 is going to be a busy year ahead for this glamorous diva.
