Nikhita is slowly but steadily making her inroads into the Malayalam film industry. She has now replaced Padmapriya in the Malayalam movie Daddy Cool by director Ashiq Abu with Mammootty in the lead hero role.
Padmapriya who was supposed to do a cameo role in the movie, could not adjust her dates, because of the Tamil projects she had taken in hand. Nikhita who has done movies like Bus Conductor, Kaiyethum Doorathu and Moonaam Khandam in Malayalam earlier stepped into the slot.
Nikhita, who tasted success with the Tamil movie Saroja is surely consolidating her position.
