It's been a while since Nikita Thukral was seen in Sandalwood, given that her last release was Krantiveera Sangoli Rayanna which hit the screens last year. The actress, who spent nearly three months away for a reality show earlier this year, had upon her return signed up for the Bollywood remake of Traffic, which she is busy with currently.
Her next Kannada film, we hear, is going to be Ring Road Shubha, directed by Priya Belliapa. "Yes, I have signed up for the film, and will be paired with Duniya Vijay. I will join the team this week," she says, refusing to divulge further details about her role. When we asked Priya, she too remained non-committal, telling us that the film is based on real-life incidents, adding though, that it is not just about the tale of Bangalorean Shubha, who was convicted in the murder of her fiance.
A source from the team adds that there is more to the story than meets the eye. "There is a reason that the team has chosen to pair Vijay with Nikita, which is a first for them. Priya and her team are making contemporary adaptation of real-life stories. Who knows, it could be about our actors as well," says the source.
