Nikhil's last year release 'Karthikeya' that was based on a supernatural thriller genre had scored a hit at the box-office. Chandoo Mondeti directed this film marked the debut of this director. 'Karthikeya' was treated as a new age cinematic vision and it continued the stardom of Nikhil after the hit of 'Swamy Ra Ra.'
At present hero Nikhil is busy in the promotions and release of his next flick 'Shankarabharanam.' After this he is in a plan on making the sequel of Karthikeya. On the other hand Chandoo Mondeti has already readied the script of this sequel. He is now directing Naga Chaitanya for 'Majnu' which is Malayalam super hit 'Premam' remake. Once this film gets completed, Nikhil and Chandoo will begin the sequel part.
The sequel is set to be shot in Amarnath with this place as the backdrop. The prequel was shot in a Subramanya Swamy temple set here in Hyderabad. It is also rumoured that huge money is being invested in the sequel as the makers are confident that the first part success has a positive vibe in the minds of audience. A top producer from Tollywood is interested in this sequel making and might even offer fancy remuneration to both hero and the director. Shall see what happens with the sequel?
