After that scintillating performance the actress has been roped in to perform another vital role in the upcoming Malayalam movie Droner by director Shaji Kailas, opposite Mammootty. Shwetha Vijay who had made her debut opposite Sureshgopi in the movie Kadaksham is also making her appearance onscreen as another heroine opposite Mammootty.
Apart from Mammootty, Kanika and Shwetha Vijay, the movie also features Thilakan and Manoj K Jayan in prominent roles. A K Sajan handles the script of this movie which is being produced by Aroma. The shooting has already begun in Ottappalam, Kerala.
Kanika is the new star in the Malayalam film industry. After the tremendous success of Bhagyadevatha and the latest super hit movie Pazhassi Raja, there has been no looking back for the actress. The actress has virtually breathed life into the role of Kaitheri Makkam in Pazhassi Raja.
