Young actor Nikhil Siddhartha, whose much awaited movie ‘Spy’ is set to be released next month, said on Tuesday that he received an invitation to meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah but he did not meet him as he wanted to stay away from politics ahead of the film’s release.
He, however, thanked Amit Shah for inviting him.
‘Spy’ teaser released on Monday has created an excitement in the industry amid reports that the movie is about the mystery behind death of freedom fighter Netaji Subhash Chandrase Bose.
The teaser was launched by Nikhil and other members of the movie on Monday at the iconic Subhash Chandrase Bose statue at India Gate in New Delhi.
Ishwarya Menon, who has paired with Nikhil as the female lead, and other members of the cast of pan-India movie were present during the launch.
Nikhil clarified that the stories of Kalyan Ram’s upcoming movie Devil and Spy are different. He revealed that only after the release of Spy teaser, they came to know that Kalyam Ram’s film is also about Subhash Chandra Bose.
“We did not speak to them. There is no relation between the two movies,” he said. Nikhil also clarified that he does not have links with any political party.
“I have no flag or agenda. This movie has been made with honesty. I took training like a real RAW agent. I have not made this movie in support of any party. I am doing this movie as an Indian,” he said, adding that he will arrange screening of Spy for both the central ministers and the opposition leaders.
Director Garry revealed that Spy has been made based on the papers released by the central government on Subhash Chandra Bose. Only 10 per cent is fiction. The remaining is based on the information given by the government.
The teaser of the much-awaited movie was released on Monday evening. Nikhil took to Twitter to reveal that the teaser has garnered 10 million real views on YouTube in less than 24 hours. “We are incredibly grateful for all the overwhelming love and support. It means the world to us,” he said.
‘Spy’ is scheduled to be released in all southern languages and also in Hindi on June 29.
Coming after ‘Karthikeya 2’, the biggest blockbusters of 2022, ‘Spy’ has generated a lot of excitement among Nikhil’s fans.
