Nisha Kothari set for second innings in Telugu films

Chennai: Actress Nisha Kothari, known for films like ‘James’ and ‘Sarkar’ with ace filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, will soon be seen in Telugu thriller ‘Criminals’ after a hiatus of five years. Her last Telugu film was the 2008 release ‘Oka Magaadu’.

"Nisha plays an important role in the film. The story is set against a series of cyber crimes and I thought she would fit the bill of one of the lead characters. The film os set to go on floors in September and we plan to shoot non-stop for over two months," the film`s director, Tulasi Ram said.

‘Criminals’ will supersede his directorial debut ‘Mantra’, he added.

"If `Mantra` scared the living daylights out of the audiences, `Criminals` will keep them engaged with taut screenplay. It will be an edge-of-the-seat thriller featuring an all new cast," he added.

Nisha, who made her cinematic debut with Tamil romantic-comedy ‘Jay Jay’, is currently also busy shooting for another Tamil flick ‘Padam Pesum’.
