Nikhil attracted the attention of all with Arjun Suravam. Though the film's release got delayed, he socred a decent hit. He is now starring in 18 Pages under the direction of Palnati Surya Pratap and is also starring in Karthikeya 2, a sequel for his hit film Karthikeya under the direction of Chandoo Mondeti.
Now speculation is increasing whether Nikhil is also smitten by Pan India craze just like other Tollywood stars and the makers. When asked whether he would star in other languages he said "I am not thinking of starring in other languages but we are planning to release Karthikeya 2 in four to five Indian languages. Apart from it, I am planning to dub for my role in all the languages just like NTR did for his role in RRR".
Nikhil seems to be getting inspired by Young Tiger NTR who dubbed for his role of Komaram Bheem in all languages for RRR.
