The ravishing Nayanthara is arguably one of the most popular names in Southern cinema today. And, needless to say, she is going through a terrific phase in life right now. This November, her ‘Aramm’ opened to a decent response at the box office and received favourable reviews along the way. Directed by newcomer Gopi Nainar, it saw K-town’s resident ‘Lady Superstar’ essay the role of an IAS officer and leave fans spellbound. Revolving around the water scarcity problem, it got the thumbs up from fans as well as those in the industry. Praising the film, the lovely Amala Paul had said that it served as proof of how good content is king.
“Hence proved, good cinema matters, kudos to #Nayanthara and director #GopiNainar , in an industry which is plagued with masala movies scripted for star heroes, #Aramm has proved the formula to be wrong. Good cinema matters, good story matters, good performances matter!” he had added.
With ‘Aramm’ in the rear view, Nayanthara is currently gearing up for the release of ‘Velaikkaran’ The action-thriller has been directed by Mohan Raja and has already become the talk of the town courtesy its gripping trailer. And, now, it seems that the buzz surrounding the film is all set to receive a shot in the arm. As it so happens, the latest promo of ‘VelaIkkazran’ has been released and it is a treat for fans. The 15-second-long clip is quite intense and indicates that the film is going to feature a solid/hard-hitting narrative. However, it does not reveal the specifics of the plot. That’s what we call an effective promo!
In ‘Velaikkaran’, Nayan will be seen alongside the fast-rising Sivakarthikeyan. And, as expected, this solid pairing has created a buzz amongst fans. We are sure that these powerhouse performers will rock it on the big screen.
Interestingly, SK has tremendous respect for ‘Thailaivi’ in real-life and feels that she is a perfectionist. At the recently-held audio launch of ‘Velaikkaran’, he had said that her dedication to her craft is responsible for her success.
“It is a happy moment to act with Nayanthara. I first saw her at the shooting spot of Aegan. Myself and Arunraja were supposed to come in brief roles in the film, and at that time, we saw her. Then, it was Ethir Neechal, where she made an appearance for a song. After that, only at the shooting spot of Velaikkaran, I saw her. The one thing that hasn’t changed at all in all these three film shooting spots, is her punctuality and perfection. That is why, I feel, that she has established a market for herself,” he had said.
As it so happens, ‘Velaikkaran’ features Fahadh Faasil in a negative role. He is one of the most popular young stars in Mollywood and ‘Velaikkaran’ will mark his Kollywood debut. Talking about him, Mohan Raja had said that he is a terrific actor and can motivate his director to do a better job.’
“After Thani Oruvan, I wanted to evolve as a better director and for that, I believed I had to come up with an even superior antagonist. So, instead of creating the character and casting the actor, I wanted to rope in an actor who would inspire me to create such an antagonist. With Fahadh on board, I knew I had the best and my challenge was to give him a role that would feed off of his thirst as a performer. It motivated me to create something great and after watching the output, I believe I am on the right track. I have always believed that an actor’s job is not just between action and cut if he has to constantly do better. It starts with the lifestyle you live, how you perceive your life and how you treat the others around you. Fahadh reinforced my beliefs in that regard,” he had told a daily.
On a related note, this is busy time for Nayan. Besides ‘Velaikkaran’, she also has ‘Jai Simha’ and ‘Sye Raa Narasdimha Reddy’ in her kitty. ‘Jai Simha’ is an action-drama and will see her share screen space with Balakrishna. On the other hand, ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ is a period drama and will see her act opposite megastar Chiranjeevi.
