Nikesha Patel, whose debut film bombed, claims she has lost two precious years of her career as a result of this film. Nikesha Patel is one disappointed actress. While she thought that she had hit the bull’s eye when she was signed for Pawan Kalyan’s “Puli” about two years ago, the film’s subsequent failure has left her with few choices. Nikesha said in an interview that “Pawan Kalyan or Director S.J.Surya have nothing to lose with this flop. But it is a huge setback for me”.
She also added that “I am not happy with the outcome of the movie. When I read the script, I thought it was a sure shot hit. Rahman’s music and many big names were involved. I thought I would be flooded with offers after this film and several filmmakers asked me not to sign any other movie until this released. I waited for two-and-a-half years and am disappointed with the box office result. I have the most to lose after “Puli”, Pawan Kalyan will still do films and the director will continue to make movies. But for a heroine like me, this movie was either a great beginning or the end of everything. I was 19 years old when I signed it and lost valuable time as age is important in showbiz”.
