Chennai, March 4 (IANS) Actor Nikhil Siddhartha plans to take a short break to pursue a film course in the US post the release of forthcoming Telugu romantic-comedy “Surya Vs Surya”.
“I’m eagerly looking forward to the release of ‘Surya Vs Surya’. Although I’m listening to scripts, I haven’t signed any other project yet as I have planned to take a short break of two months for doing a film course at New York Film Institute,” Nikhil told IANS.
Nikhil, who had to gain weight for his last release “Karthikeya”, had to shed for this film.
“I play a 19-year old college student. I had to look the age of my character. So I went on a strict diet and lost about 10 kg,” he said.
In the film, Nikhil plays a character suffering from Porphyria – a rare disorder that stops production of haemoglobin and hence can’t face the sun.
Directed by Karthik Gattamneni, “Surya Vs Surya” also features Tridha Chaudhary, Tanikella Bharani, Rao Ramesh and Madhoo.
