Nikhila Vimal made her silver screen debut in the Sathyan Anthikad film, Bhagyadevatha. She played Jayaram's younger sister in it, but her real break came much later when she debuted as the heroine of Dileep in Sreebala K Menon’s Love 24X7. It was a film based in the backdrop of the News television industry and was appreciated by the critics though it failed at the box office. After that, it did not take long for Nikhila to become a household name through popular films like Vetrivel, Guitar, Aravindante Adhithikal, Njan Prakashan, Mera Naam Shaji, Oru Yamandan Prema kadha, Anchaam Pathira, and The Priest.
Nikhila hails from Kannur’s Thaliparambu. Recently she visited the Muzhappilangad beach and shared the pictures on Instagram. It is considered one of the most popular tourist destinations in Kannur. In fact, for the people of Kannur, Muzhappilangad beach is a matter of personal pride as it is the longest drive-in beach in Asia where you can drive through the waves. It is located 15 km from the city. You can drive for about 4 km through the wet sand dunes of the waves. Taking a long drive, enjoying the sea breeze is an excellent idea. And ideal for a family evening out.
There are also facilities for safe swimming in the sea. This beach is in the Muzhappilangad Grama Panchayat, between the Ancharakandi River and the Arabian Sea. In the evenings, many tourists come here to enjoy the breeze and drive along the beach. Apart from the beach, Muzhappilangad is home to many ancient caves, temples, and other historical sites. The beach is also great for birdwatching as more than thirty species of migratory birds visit here in the winter.
It is said that long, broad shore and rocky formations on either side of the beach provide a safe place for migration. On National Highway 66 the beach is situated between Kannur town and Thalassery town. There are five village connection roads on the National Highway towards the beach.
