The majority of exit poll has predicted her victory. India Today-Axis Poll and Republic TV exit poll have stated that Sumalatha, actress and wife of late former Congress leader Ambareesh, is likely to defeat Nikhil Kumaraswamy, actor and son of Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy. Meanwhile, Suvarna News and TV9 are also expecting Sumalatha to defeat Nikhil. However, Times Now predicts the latter to have the last laugh in the what is considered to be a prestigious seat for the JD(S). It may be recalled that Sumalatha contested as an independent contestant after Congress, owing to the coalition compulsions, gave away the seat to its partner JD(S). The BJP too supported her candidature and did not field any candidate. Mandya had hogged all the attention and it was spiced up by Kumaraswamy's attack on Sumalatha and her star campaigners - Darshan and Yash.
