- Phoonk (2008)
Kiccha made his Bollywood debut with the Ram Gopal Varma directorial Phoonk. The actor played an atheist who is forced to consult an exorcist after her daughter is possessed by evil. Co-starring Amruta Khanvilkar and Ahsaas Channa, the film was well received and turned out to be a massive commercial and critical success.
- Phoonk 2 (2010)
A sequel to the earlier film, Kiccha reprised his role in Phoonk 2 with the same star cast-Amruta Khanvilkar and Ahsaas Channa. Directed by Milind Gadagkar, the plot revolves around the family starting a new life in a new house until the kid finds a possessed doll in the woods.
