Having established himself as one of the most promising stars of Tollywood, Nithiin went through a lean phase before making a comeback of sorts in a cameo in 2019's successful venture Gaddalakonda Ganesh and followed that with another success with Bheeshma which got rave reviews from all quarters. Bheeshma, a romantic comedy, directed by Venky Kudumula, saw Nithiin pairing up with Rashmika Mandanna. It was then announced that Nithiin would be reprising Ayushmann Khurrana's role from the blockbuster Hindi movie Andhadhun, in its Telugu remake.

This movie is to be directed by Merlapaka Gandhi and is being bankrolled by Sudhakar Reddy and Nikitha Reddy, under the Sreshth Movies banner and will be presented by B Madhu. The movie was launched with a formal pooja a couple of months back and was initially planned to start rolling in the month of June. There are rumours doing rounds that Keerthy Suresh and Gangleader heroine Priyanka Arul Mohan have been considered to play the lead roles in the remake and Nithiin has apparently his wish to cast in Keerthy Suresh for the female lead role. When we checked with our sources close to the Sarkar actress, they denied Keerthy being approached for the role. It looks like the actress has her hands full right now and may not sign any news projects in the coming months.
