Following the huge success of her latest film Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran opposite Vishnu Vishal, the picture-perfect Nikki Galrani has become the ‘toast’ of Kollywood.
Starring Vishnu Vishal, Nikki and Soori in lead roles and directed by Ezhil, the laugh riot Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran hit the screens on 03rd June and became an instant success and trade circles say that the film has collected at least 200% of its initial investment by the producer.
Nikki, who debuted in Tamil films early last year opposite music director-turned-hero G.V. Prakash Kumar with the comic horror film Darling, starred in films such as Yagavarayinum Naa Kakka and Ko 2 but both the films didn’t set fire to the box-office and were average grosser.
However, Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran’s success has done wonders to Nikki’s career in Kollywood as she has plenty of films in Mottai Siva Ketta Siva (with Raghava Lawrence), Kadavul Irukkaan Kumaru (with G.V. Prakash Kumar), Neruppu Daa (with Vikram Prabhu) and a few other film offers.
Producers and directors seek Nikki not only because of her lucky charm but also because of the fact that she signs up along the dotted line not bothering about whether the film has a frontline hero or a newcomer. Her ever-friendly attitude and her fluent Tamil speaking ability have also made her dear to film-makers.
Way to go, Nikki!
