Sources have said that Muniratna, who once called her home-breaker for her alleged affair with Darshan, approached Nikita to do an item number in Upendra's Katari Veera Surasundarangi. The actress straight away rejected his offer. It is said that the producer's attempt to woo her by offering her a whopping price also failed to convince her.
Earlier, the KFPA announced a 3-year-ban against Nikitha after Darshan's wife reportedly named the actress as the reason behind their rift. The producers guild said that it wanted actors to be professional and concentrate only on their jobs. However, the decision on moral grounds created a controversy and many celebrities across India raised their voices against the biased decision.
Katari Veera Surasundarangi directed by Suresh Krishna of Kadamba fame also features Ramya and Ambareesh in the cast.
