There is this film that made many look forward to it in awe as popular cinematographer Gnansekhar is producing it. That is exactly a year ago but there is no buzz about it later. In what was said to be just a 30-day scheduled production, featuring Shriya Saran and Niharika Konidela in the leads, there seems that the plans have gone for a toss.
To be directed by newcomer Sujana, the film’s opening ceremony is held grandly with director Krish attending it. The latest update is that Niharika has walked out of the movie citing the delays. Another buzz is that she isn’t confident of the output getting carved by the newcomer director.
After considering many actresses for Niharika’s role, now they have roped in Taxiwala fame Priyanka Jawalkar in that place and producer Raj Kandukari’s son Shiva is likely to romance her. Sources close to this film’s unit remain tightlipped on Niharika’s exit, while they confirm Priyanka is aboard.
The film was supposed to be the story of three different people in Hyderabad backdrop, with one being Shriya who comes out from a slum and another one is an Independent Muslim girl played by Niharika.
Mega girl Niharika wanted to make it big in Telugu cinema and she proved that is a good performer with her debut film Oka Manasu. Both her films Oka Manasu and Happy Wedding ended up as commercial disasters and after a while, Niharika is back with Suryakantam which released yesterday. Niharika tasted her third disaster in a row with Suryakantam and the day one numbers left the actress in deep shock.
The film failed to register decent numbers all over. In Telangana, the film faced the heat through Lakshmi’s NTR. With poor word of mouth, the film failed to pickup by evening shows which made it clear that Suryakantam is the third disaster for Niharika. The entire movie unit was left in deep shock with the film’s performance. Rahul Vijay and Niharika played the lead roles in this rom com. Nirvana Cinemas bankrolled the project.
Mega girl is now left puzzled after tasting her third disaster in a row. She is yet to sign her next film.
Mega girl Niharika Konidela who made her debut as an actress with Oka Manasu is all set to test her luck with Happy Wedding which is releasing on July 28th. The actress spoke about films, her love for family, her hobbies and about her future films. Here are the excerpts from her interview given to a Telugu leading daily:
I am keen on picking up interesting projects that have enough prominence for my role. That is why there has been a huge gap between Oka Manasu and Happy Wedding. I rejected 8 scripts in the recent times not because they are bad but I felt that I don’t fit into those roles.
Happy Wedding is a film that every youth gets related to. I loved the way the director narrated the script and I have been waiting for film like Happy Wedding from some time.
I was restricted initially (because I was the only girl in my family), but when I took career as an actor and proved my mettle, my family gained confidence. They are quite relaxed now and gave me a free hand.
I loved the role of Sandhya from Oka Manasu so much and signed the film. It is away from commercial films and the roles regular heroines play. Though my dad asked me to re-consider my decision, I have no regrets of essaying the role and doing the film. I have got to learn enough from the film.
I am a bubbly girl who loves to lead the life to the fullest. There are times when I turn dull and my whole family comes down to change my mood. Despite of their busy schedules, they shower enough love and they stand beside me when needed.
Sleeping is my favorite pass time and I love listening music. Sleep relieves me from pressure and dancing for music is my hobby.
I wanted to learn everything from my childhood. One fine day I joined gymnastic classes but I was left with body pains after day one and called it a skip. Later I joined classical dance classes after which I realized that it was a tough one for me. I learned badminton and skating during my college days.
I am in touch my close buddies. We meet four times in a week and spend enough time. I am a graduate in mass communication and had some gala time during the college days.
My dad is a lover of books. I don’t have patience to read a complete book and my dad reveals about the theme, highlights of the book once he is done with it. I love watching films and I watch them before reading the reviews.
I love and respect myself alot because of which I don’t compare myself with anyone. Life depends on the opportunities we get and how we work hard to succeed in life. Instead of comparing with others, lead a happy life with the given chances.

Pranith further added that Sivaji Raja and Sathya are on board for “full-length supporting roles”. “There’s another actress who will be playing key role. I’ve initiated talks with her. She is required for the second schedule.”

Once I was, things moved in the right direction.”
