It’s been a while since action entertainer Nikamma was announced. Not only is it the debut film of actress Shirley Setia but also Shilpa Shetty’s comeback film after nearly 15 years. But the film got delayed considerably and now the makers have finally announced its release date. The film will hit the big screens on 17th June 2022. It also stars Abhimanyu Dassani in the lead who was last seen in Meenakshi Sundareshwar


Speaking of releasing Nikamma now, director Sabbir Khan 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’.” 


Shilpa Shetty added, “I am glad our film ‘Nikamma’ has a release date set and I cannot wait for audiences to see me in another avatar. 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 is backed by Sony Pictures Films India and Sabbir Khan Films and will have a theatrical release on 17th June 2022.
