Karthikeya 2 will be directed by Chandoo Mondeti and jointly produced by People Media Factory, Abhishek Agarwal Arts
While the sequel to the superhit Karthikeya that starred Nikhil Siddhartha, Swathi Reddy, was announced a long time ago, there hasn't been any update about the project from the director Chandoo Mondeti or lead actor Nikhil ever since. Finally, we have some news! After much speculation about the film's female lead, it's now official that Premam, Shatamanam Bhavathi actress Anupama Parameswaran is the leading lady of Karthikeya 2. The film marks the second collaboration between Nikhil and Anupama after Surya Pratap Palanati's 18 Pages (yet to release).

The producers of Karthikeya 2, People Media Factory and Abhishek Agarwal Arts, adopted a unique strategy to announce the film's female lead. The video started with Chandoo Mondeti covering Anupama Parameswaran's face while the lead actor demanded an answer from him about the heroine of Karthikeya 2. Chandoo Mondeti and Anupama had a hearty laugh soon and confirmed the news about the latest addition to the film team. "I'm equally surprised," said Anupama about her presence in Karthikeya 2. "On Krishnashtami, here we're introducing our Radha (referring to Anupama)," Chandoo Mondeti said in the video.
Kaala Bhairava is composing music for the thriller. In response to a fan's query, who had asked if comedian Satya would be a part of the movie, Nikhil Siddhartha replied in the affirmative. Zee Group is also associated with the project that'll go on floors soon. Nikhil and Anupama are currently awaiting the release of 18 Pages. Anupama will also be seen in Rowdy Boys, the launch vehicle of noted producer Dil Raju's nephew Ashish. The film director Chandoo Mondeti had last wielded the megaphone for Naga Chaitanya's action-thriller Savyasachi.
