Magadheera connect for Nikhil Siddharths Karthikeya 2

Actors Nikhil Siddharth and Anupama Parameswaran have quietly commenced shooting for Karthikeya 2 in Gujarat. Directed by Chandoo Mondeti, the film will be shot in Vadodara, Dwaraka and The Great Rann of Kutch's salt marsh, where Ram Charan's Magadheera horse race scene had been shot.

The on-going schedule will go on for a little over two weeks and following this, the team will leave for Nepal to film important scenes on the lead pair. The makers are also planning to shoot a crucial scene of the film in Cambodia, but given the present global crisis due to the Covid-19 outbreak, they are finding it difficult to obtain permission.

A sequel to Karthikeya, Karthikeya 2 is a mythological thriller that traces some incidents dating back 5000 years. Set in the backdrop of Kumbh Mela, the film has Nikhil playing a doctor. The actor will be seen in a beefed-up look sporting a six-pack in the film. A pan-Indian film that releases in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi, Karthikeya 2 also has Swathi Reddy as the other lead. The sequel will pick up from where the first part culminated.

Besides Karthikeya 2, Nikhil and Anupama are also working in Palnati Surya Pratap's romantic entertainer, 18 Pages.
