Out of which Golconda High School and Swamy Ra Ra were successful but Kalavaramaaye Madhilo, Katha Screenplay Darsakathvam – Appalraju and Bangaru Kodipetta did not fare well at the box office. Finally she made a comeback to success streak with his lucky charm, Nikhil. She paired up with him for the second time in Karthikeya and the film became super hit.
