classs student_info(osv.Model):

_columns = {

'nick_name_ids': fields.many2many('nick.name', 'student_nick_name_rel', 'student_id', 'nick_id', string='Nick Name'),

'nick_name_1': fields.char('Nick Name 1'),

'nick_name_2':fields.char('Nick Name 2'),

Dear Ankit,

You must know more here.

The attrs works on client side only, is evaluated on client parser only.

You must try these ways:

A. specify ('nick_name_ids', 'in', LIST OF NAMES)] Or try IDs(not recommended though).

B. Have an invisible field of type char which keeps the values of nick_name_ids. You may run your attrs easily then. You may even do smarter things based on the onchange of M2M field.
