Actress Nisha Kothari, known for films like "James" and "Sarkar" with ace filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, will soon be seen in Telugu thriller "Criminals" after a hiatus of five years. Her last Telugu film was the 2008 release "Oka Magaadu".
"Nisha plays an important role in the film. The story is set against a series of cyber crimes and I thought she would fit the bill of one of the lead characters. The film os set to go on floors in September and we plan to shoot non-stop for over two months," the film's director, Tulasi Ram, told IANS.
"Criminals" will supersede his directorial debut "Mantra", he added.
"If 'Mantra' scared the living daylights out of the audiences, 'Criminals' will keep them engaged with taut screenplay. It will be an edge-of-the-seat thriller featuring an all new cast," he added.
Nisha, who made her cinematic debut with Tamil romantic-comedy "Jay Jay", is currently also busy shooting for another Tamil flick "Padam Pesum".
