Young hero Nikhil is one of the few Telugu heroes who always tries his hands at different subjects. He is presently working on a remake of a Tamil super hit film 'Kanithan'. The movie is titled 'Mudra' in Telugu and it is helmed by TN Santosh who directed the Tamil original.
The makers have recently finalised Lavanya Tripathi as Nikhil's love interest in the film. It is known that Lavanya has been going through a rough phase in her career as all her films failed at the box office. 'Mudra' is going to be a wonderful opportunity for her because the story is very strong. She is going to reprise the role of Catherine Tresa. The makers reportedly approached Catherine initially for the remake. As the didn't show interest to act in the same role again, Lavanya has got the chance.
Tagore Madhu is bankrolling the project. The success of 'Mudra' is going to be crucial for not only Lavanya but Nikhil also because his last film 'Kirrak Party' disappointed at the box office.
