What is cooking between Kannada film industry's leading star Darshan and multilingual actress Nikitha? If a section of well circulated Kannada tabloids is to be believed, both Darshan and Nikitha are cosy with each other and got married a few days ago.
Some tabloids have also written Darshan has even brought a flat in Mumbai for the glamorous actress who is now busy in Kannada and Tamil films. There were also some
rumours circulating that Darshan is slowly moving away from his wife Vijayalakshmi with whom he has been married for five years. The couple has a two year old son.
Darshan has not been reacting to these reports.
The unit members working for the Kannada film Prince which is now being shot in Mysore says that the actor has just laughed at these rumours. This is the first
time that he has been linked to any of his co-artists as he has always claimed that he does not involve himself in choosing his heroine and would be happy to work
with whom so ever the producer or director chooses.
Nikitha said that the whole thing is funny. Talking to Sify Movies, the actress said that she has been meeting Vijayalakshmi practically every day on the sets of Prince and both of them are just laughing at these atrocious and baseless reports. "Three days ago Vijayalakshmi Madam even told me that some more reports may come in a few tabloids. She said that she is not bothered with such rumours. There was a marriage sequence that was shot in Mysore for this film. Director Om Prakash shot the sequence for two days and within a few days I found speculative reports appearing in press that Darshan sir and I are married. It is so ridiculous. Why should these tabloids paint me in the black and spread false rumours. And none of these journalists have talked to me or to any other unit members to ascertain the truth. It is plain silly," says Nikitha.
Nikitha who has worked with Darshan in Yodha an year ago has signed two films with the actor in the past few months. Prince is the first of these two films and she has also been signed to play the lead in the historical film Sangolli Raayanna directed by Naganna. She has signed another new Kannada film with Ramesh Arvind.
