We witnessed a lot of mockery being exchanged between Ambareesh and Kumaraswamy's family during the Mandya Lok Sabha elections that commenced recently. But, these two families have shared a warm relationship for years. Just a few months before the elections, Nikhil Kumar had appeared on a chat show, during which he caught up with Abhishek over a call. While teasing each other about their dating lives, Ambareesh's son revealed that girls he likes rejected him for Nikhil Kumar! Apparently, they always thought Abhishek was Nikhil's bodyguard.
How Many Girls Has Nikhil Dated?
Since Abhishek and Nikhil have been close friends for years, they didn't shy away from talking about their love lives. However, when asked how many girls have proposed to Nikhil, Abhishek said, "I'll you the truth. Whoever I think of dating, leaves as soon as they see Nikhil next to me. They think I'm his bodyguard."
Abhishek Reveals Nikhil's Secrets
"He's a very innocent, dedicated and hard working boy. He's the gentleman of the Kannada film industry," said Abhishek. When the Amar actor was asked to specifically reveal the naughty side of Nikhil's, he surprised everyone saying, "There isn't anything naughty about him."
'Ambareesh Is A Father Figure To Me'
Nikhil also said that he and Abhishek have been friends since childhood. He shared his reminiscence of his days with the Rebel Star. "Ambareesh anna will always remain a father figure to me," said the Seetharama Kalyana actor.
They Have Overlooked The Issues
It came across as a shocker when Nikhil Kumar announced that he would contesting opposite Sumalatha. The situation took a bitter turn when the two parties began campaigning vigorously, which eventually turned into a verbal brawl.
However, when the election results were announced, Nikhil took to his social media to congratulate Sumalatha Ambareesh on her victory, he used the same platform to wish Abhishek luck for his latest film Amar.
