Nikhil Siddharth was a part of Karthikeya, which released in 2014. This film was directed by Chandoo Mondeti and was a hit. The sequel was on cards.
The news was that Nikhil is writing the story of the sequel which has been titled 'Karthikeya 2'. Nikhil said that he is not writing any story. He prefers acting as writing and direction is not his areas of expertise. The common thing that both these films will have is Swathi will be the leading lady. Currently Chandoo Mondeti is busy with his film Savyasachi.
