Recently, actor turned politician Nikhil Kumaraswamy had announced that he will be acting in a film called 'Nikhil Elliddiyappa' to be produced by Minister Puttaraju. Now producer A Ganesh has registered a title called 'Elliddiyappa' and has announced to produce a film under the same name.
'Nikhil Elliddiyappa' which means 'Nikhil, Where are you' was the statement made by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy during the audio release of Nikhil's debut film 'Jaguar'. However, the statement got trolled and became famous after Nikhil was announced as the Lok Sabha candidate for Mandya from JD(S). The statement became very popular and many producers flocked the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce to register the title. However, the KFCC did not give the title to anybody to avoid controversies.
Now senior producer A Ganesh has not only registered, but also has acquired the title. However, it has not been announced that who will be acting or directing the film.
