Actress Avika Gor will collaborate with actor Nikhil Siddhartha in his yet-untitled Telugu project, which will be directed by Vi. Anand. The makers are also in talks with Taapsee Pannu to play one of the leads.
"Avika is already on board. She will be playing one of the leads, while we are still in talks with Taapsee to play another leading lady. The film will also feature a third heroine, but we still haven't finalised anybody," Anand told IANS.
The film, which will be a love story with some fantasy elements, will feature Nikhil in two different avatars.
"It's a performance-oriented role. We were on the lookout for an actor who can play a youthful and trendy character. Nikhil perfectly fits the bill," said Anand, adding that Nikhil is a versatile actor of the younger lot.
To be produced by Venkateswara Rao, the project will go on floors in mid-December. Sekar Chandra will compose the music.
Anand also has plans to remake his last Telugu directorial 'Tiger' in Tamil, but everything is still in the nascent stage.
