To be shot in 3D

Talking to OTT Play last year, Nikhil revealed that Karthikeya 3 was supposed to go on-floors last year and that the film will be shot in 3D. He said, “The year 2022 really proved that content is king - we saw films of all kinds work. RRR has found a global presence, Pathaan is doing so well and so did Brahmastra and Kantara. I am very happy that Karthikeya 2 is part of the list. As far as Karthikeya 3 is concerned, I can tell you it is definitely arriving and it will be made in 3D.”

The Karthikeya franchise

When Chandoo debuted with the 2014 film Karthikeya, the film was a massive success. Nikhil played a medico in the film, someone who questioned superstition and busted it with science. However, the film saw him playing an atheist who begins to see that maybe there is something beyond science.

While Karthikeya 2, which was released in 2022, also starts out that way, the film evolved the character into a believer. The film was released in Telugu and Hindi, earning the actor fame. Karthikeya starred Swathi, while the second film starred Anupama Parameswaran. The cast and crew of the third film are yet to be revealed.
