Shilpa Shetty dresses up as a superhero to help a slacker Abhimanyu Dassani, and people are already calling it “disastrous.”
Shilpa Shetty is back on the big screen with Nikamma, and the teaser suggests she’s doing something new this time. The Nikamma teaser, which stars Abhimanyu Dassani as a lazy unemployed kid, centers on how he just believes in having fun seven days a week. But his world is turned upside down when Shilpa Shetty appears as a superhero to make him accountable. He ultimately steps up to battle the film’s antagonist, Abhimanyu Singh, for his family.
Shirley Setia, who makes her Bollywood debut with Nikamma, is also introduced in the teaser. It depicts Abhimanyu’s Sidharth (Sid) lounging about from Monday through Thursday, then going to the movies on Friday, drinking on Saturday, and painting the town red with Shirley’s Siya on Sunday. The trailer also has a remade version of the classic Kyaa Dil Ne Kahaa song Nikamma Kiya Is Dil Ne.
In other words, it’s time for yet another remake.” If you look at this movie’s poster you’ll see that it’s a re-creation of the original Nicki Disappointment appeared like a superhero picture, such a letdown),” one fan said in response to the teaser. “Disastrous se bhi upar wala trailer!” commented another. Many others complimented the trailer in the comments section as well.
The action-comedy will be released in theatres on June 17 of this year. The film, directed by Sabbir Khan and produced by Sony Pictures International Productions and Sabbir Khan Films, also stars Samir Soni.
Shilpa uploaded the teaser on Instagram a few days after declaring a hiatus from social media. Shilpa said, “Nikamma hona is an art? My toe! Iski vaat ab dekho yeh AVNI kaise lagaati hai! (Is it an art to be a slacker? My toe! Now observe how Avni confronts him).”

The film was supposed to be released in 2019, however, it was postponed because of the covid epidemic. It is claimed to be a remake of the Telugu film Middle-Class Abbayi, which was released in 2017.
“Nikamma made me a hero from an actor,” Abhimanyu stated of the film. It exemplifies what Bollywood stands for high-quality entertainment. The picture attracted me because of its healthy bundle of emotions, ranging from action, romance, humor, and drama. Given the core ideals at stake, the narrative is incredibly realistic and connects with everyone in our culture. I had a great time working on the picture and can’t wait for the public to see it.”
Shilpa’s 14-year film sabbatical came to an end last year with her role in the 2021 film Hungama 2. Shilpa is making her first appearance on the big screen in over a decade with Nikamma, which made its premiere on Disney+ Hotstar.
