Continuing the conversation with us, we asked Nikitin Dheer about which actor from the South industry he wants to share screens with. The Ready fame explained, "I would really like to work with Chiyaan Vikram. He is one of the actors I really look up to. I feel if I ever get a Tamil film, I want it to be with him. I think there's going to be so much to learn."

Expressing more about it, Dheer replied, "Apart from that, actors down south have a very different take on things because their stories are very close to their own towns, close to earth, close to all of that and that's why it hits harder. So, I think one gets to learn a lot in just their kind of storytelling that they have. But he is one actor I would really like to work with."
