Last year, the lovely Nayanthara gave strong proof of her abilities as an actor when she delivered a powerful performance in Aramm and left fans asking for more. A social-drama, it featured her in the role of a dedicated IAS officer and earned rave reviews along the way. Based on the water scarcity issue, the film was directed by newcomer Gopi Nainar and proved to be a commercial success despite its low budget. Now, ‘Thaiaivi’ is all set to work with a newcomer yet again. In an exciting development, Nayan has agreed to star in ‘Lakshmi’ director Sarjun’s second feature film. An out and out horror-thriller, it is being referred to as Production No 3 and will be produced by Aramm producer by KJ Rajesh.
Talking about the film, Sarjun told a leading website that Nayan agreed to it after an hour-long narration. He added that this won’t be a routine horror film.
“I gave an hour’s narration to Nayanthara and she liked it very much. She liked Maa also very much and she spoke about it. It’s not the usual horror film, so she gave the go-ahead,” added Sarjun.
Interestingly, Nayan is no stranger to the horror genre. In 2015, she received appreciation for her work in Maya and proved her ‘Lady Superstar’ status. Similarly, last year, she earned rave reviews for her act in Dora. As such, she definitely is the right choice for this one.
On a related note, this is a good time for Nayan. Her last release Jai Simha proved to be a commercial success despite mixed reviews. At present, she has Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Viswasam in her kitty. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is a period drama and has Chiranjeevi in the titular role. As far as Viswasam is concerned, it is a Siva directorial and also has Ajith in the lead.
