Kannada filmmaker Rishika Sharma has made two feature films, Trunk and Vijayanand, both featuring her ‘good pal’ Nihal Rajput in the lead. While there were rumours in industry circles that they were more than just friends, the duo had hitherto maintained that they’re pals supporting each other’s career. Well, the cat’s now out of the bag. Today, Rishika and Nihal finally admitted that they’ve been in love for nine years and that they are now set to take their relationship to the next level by getting married. They’ve set February 15 as the D-day.

Rishika’s debut directorial venture, Trunk, was a horror film about paranormal activity, while the more recent Vijayanand was the first biopic in Sandalwood. Rishika had made a film on the founder of Vijayanand Roadlines, Vijay Sankeshwar, with Nihal playing the Hubballi-based entrepreneur. The film released in Kannada, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam in early December, but did not strike a chord with audiences, despite its ensemble cast, which included names like V Ravichandran, Anant Nag, Vinaya Prasad, Dayal Padmanabhan, Shine Shetty, Bharat Bopanna, Archana Kottige and Siri Prahlad, among others. The debut production venture of Vijay and his son Anand Sankeshwar under their VRL Productions, the film had music by Gopi Sundar.

Taking to social media to announce their wedding plans, Rishika wrote, along with a picture of her with Nihal at the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam, “In ‘your world’❤️ now and forever- #NihalR Excited to share happy news with you all that me and #Nihal are getting married this February 2023. Millions of tiny moments that created our beautiful love story. Paving way to our joyful and meaningful 9 years of friendship and love.” Nihal followed that up with a post of his own, writing, “Welcome to my World. Where U are my World😘. Behind every successful man there is a woman. It’s you Rishika Sharma . 10years of friendship and 9 years of love💕Now we are getting married on this February 15th 2023.”
