Actor Nitin Reddy, an ardent fan of actor Pawan Kalyan, is repeating the sentiment associated with PK in his upcoming Telugu romantic-drama Courier Boy Kalyan (CBK). He says the reference is merely a coincidence, but adds that it might work in his favour. His character in the film is called PK (Panileni Kalyan).
Talking to IANS, Nitin told, "It's merely a coincidence, but
since my last two films also had references to Pawan Kalyan and
turned out to be successful, I'm hoping that it might work again in
Courier Boy Kalyan. He (Pawan) has been my lucky mascot,
and therefore, it's like repeating the sentiment."
Nitin has worked with Nithya Menon in two back-to-back Telugu Blockbusters. Directed by Premsai, Courier Boy Kalyan feature Yami Gautam alongside him. Talking about the heroine, the actor says, "Nithya Menon was supposed to be paired opposite me in the film, but she was extremely busy. Yami was eventually signed on. It was fun working with her, a great co-actor and very dedicated."
Nitin's last two releases Ishq and Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde had references to Pawan. While the former had a scene dedicated to the superstar, the latter dedicated a song to him. Produced by Gautham Vasudev Menon, Courier Boy Kalyan is also being simultaneously made in Tamil titled Tamilselvanum Thaniyaar Anjalum. It features Jai in the lead.
