The phrase 'Nikhil Yellidiyappa' which went viral across the globe becoming one of most widely talked-about phenomena during the Lok-Sabha election, will be soon made into a film!
While there were speculations that several filmmakers made futile attempts to get the title 'Nikhil Yellidiyappa' registered, it is now none other than JD(S) leader and close aide of Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, Mr. C S Puttaraju, who has expressed his willingness to make a movie titled after 'Nikhil Yellidiyappa' featuring Nikhil Kumaraswamy as its hero!
The minister while interacting with the media, has said that he will only produce the movie featuring Nikhil Kumaraswamy.
The origin of 'Nikhil Yellidiyappa' can be traced back to Jaguar audio release function held in Mandya wherein Mr. Kumaraswamy calls Nikhil who was present in the middle of common public, an act to directly connect with the commoners. It was later used by social media users trolling Nikhil Kumaraswamy during the election campaign.
