As many leading filmmakers and actors struggle to cater to the changing tastes of the audience, actor Nikhil Siddharth and director Chandoo Mondeti struck a chord with fans with Karthikeya 2, which turned out to be one of the few box office successes in recent times. The second part ended with a scene that suggested another film in the franchise. Towards the end of the film, Karthikeya is seen holding a key to an underwater city. Now, confirming the third part of the series, Nikhil also revealed that the upcoming film will be made in 3D.
India Today quoted the actor as saying, “Yes, with everyone’s blessings, we are planning to make Karthikeya 3. This time is also more exciting because we are planning to make the film in 3D.”
The Karthikeya film series follows the adventures of the title character, played by Nikhil Siddhartha, who tries to unravel strange mysteries he encounters on his travels. In the first part, a medical student, Karthikeya, solved the mystery surrounding a temple where people died from snake bites. In Karthikeya 2, he tries to unravel the mystery surrounding Lord Krishna’s ankle. Now fans are waiting to see what is in store in the upcoming movie.
Nikhil is currently busy promoting the Malayalam version of Karthikeya 2 in Kerala which is set to release on 23rd September. Apart from Nikhil, the film also stars Anupama Parameswaran, Anupam Kher and Aditya Menon.
