Shilpa Shetty, Abhimanyu Dassani starrer Nikamma to release on June 17


‘Nikamma’, which is a Sabbir Khan Films and Sony Pictures Films India production, has finally got a release date. The action entertainer is all set to hit to the big screens on June 17, 2022.

The makers of the movie are calling it a wholesome entertainer with action, drama, romance and “explosive entertainment” on the silver screen. The movie has been directed by ‘Baaghi’ and Heropanti’ director Sabbir Khan.

Director Sabbir Khan is excited about the movie’s release. He said, “The whole team has been waiting very patiently for the times to be right for the world and I am just happy to see our film finally getting a theatrical release, which is what the film was conceived for. The fresh new pairing of Abhimanyu and Shirley will surprise everyone, with Shilpa in a totally different avatar. I hope that the audiences will show the same love for Abhi and Shirley as they had done for Tiger and Kriti in their debut ‘Heropanti’.”

Abhimanyu Dassani debuted with the acclaimed movie, ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’ and he also received a lot of praise for his role in the Netflix movie ‘Meenakshi Sundareshwar’. ‘Nikamma will, however, be Abhimanyu’s big venture into the theatrical screen.

While talking about the release of ‘Nikamma’, actor Abhimanyu Dassani said, “They say good things take time, I believe the same when it comes to ‘Nikamma’. Working on this film has been an adventure I’m glad we chose to wait for a theatrical release for it. ‘Nikamma’ is a total family entertainer that is best enjoyed in a community viewing experience of a theatre with popcorn and samosas.”

Abhimanyu is the son of actress Bhagyashree who shot to fame in her debut movie ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ with Salman Khan.

Shilpa Shetty who has recently resumed working in movies was also excited about the release of ‘Nikamma’. She said she cannot wait for the audience to see her in a new avatar. She further said, “As an actress, it is great to be back in the theatres after a hiatus of 15 years. It’s the first film I said yes to after my sabbatical, and I was convinced by Sabbir’s grasp on the craft and the unusual and exciting part he had to offer. Avni has been one of my most challenging roles yet, but also a part I enjoyed playing to the hilt. Can’t wait for people to enjoy ‘Nikamma’ in the theatres.”

‘Nikamma’ will release in cinemas on June 17, 2022.
