Wonder boy

THE NEW kid to make waves in Telugu cinema is Nitin, who shot to fame with Teja's "Jayam", which was one of the super hits of 2002.

This 20-year-old Hyderabad lad is doing his B Tech Engineering but has now hardly any time to attend classes as his second film "Dil" released last week has also been declared a hit. Nitin considers Teja his Godfather and is doing "Dhairyam" with him. His current projects include Dasarath's "Sambaram" and Karunakaran's new film.

The buzz is that he is one of the heroes in Mani Ratnam's new Tamil film.
