Hero Nikhil is on a roll since Swamy Ra Ra. He scored back to back hits with Karthikeya and Surya Vs Surya later. Among all the three, Karthikeya turned out to be a big hit than expected. For that reason he is now implementing that sentiment to upcoming "Shankarabaranam". Featuring NIkhil in a stunning military haircut and dazzling Telugu girl Nanditha paired opposite him, Shankarabaranam is directed by Uday Nandanavanam while written by Kona Venkat. The story is about a rich NRI youth who comes down to India for an occasion and his life turns topsy-turvy. Shot extensively in USA and Bihar in India, the movie is aiming for Deepavali release, during which Karthikeya too released.
