Karthika is considered a very auspicious month. It starts with Diwali and ends with Karthika Amavasya. During the entire month, Lord Shiva is worshipped with great reverence and prayers are offered. This month is also known as purushottama masa as it is believed that lord Shiva and lord Vishnu exist together during this month. The significance of karthika month is marked by deep aradhana- the lighting of the lamps.
On the occasion of Karthika Pournami, the young actor Nikhil Siddhartha, who is best known for films like Happy Days, Karthikeya and Swamy Ra Ra, went to Skandagiri Temple of Lord Subramanya Swamy to light 365 lamps. This news is confirmed by Nikhil himself as he took to his Twitter to share a pic, in which he is seen lighting the lamp and said, “Light 365 Lamps which I do every year.”
On the other side recently Nikhil expressed his desire to don the directorial hat. During the lockdown, he apparently spent a lot of time on his script and finalized his directorial venture. The sources say that Nikhil’s maiden directorial project will have five kids in lead roles, and it will be an experimental film shot with limited members of cast and crew.
On the work front, Nikhil will be seen playing the lead role in Karthikeya 2, a sequel to his own film.
