According to the latest reports, ‘Lady Superstar’ Nayanthara will reprise Bollywood star Anushka Sharma’s role in the Tamil remake of her recent release Pari. Nayan is no stranger to horror films and has previously acted movies such as Dora and Maya to name a few. As such, she could indeed be the right choice for the remake.
In case you did not know, Pari is a horror/ghost thriller and features Anushka in shocking avatar. Released around Holi, it received decent reviews and fared well at the ticket window. It was produced by the NH 10 star under her banner and served as strong proof of her abilities as a performer.
While talking about it, she had said that it was her way of trying out something new.
“It’s something that people are not getting into because many times people have this mentality that they need one person to start something and then everybody starts doing it. As an A-list actress, I want to emphasise on content and bring in elements that have not been tried before. If I succeed, then it will add value to it,” she had said.
Interestingly, Nayanthara has been on a roll of late. Last year, she delivered a solid performance in Aramm and left fans asking for. A social-drama, it featured her in the role of a collector and did well at the box office. Thereafter, she delivered another gem of a performance in Velaikkaran and left movie goers mesmerised. She was last seen in Jai Simha and delivered a decent performance. Released in January, it also had NBK in the lead and did decent business at the box office,
At present, she has the eagerly-awaited Sye Raa Narasinmha Reddy in her kitty. It is a period drama and will see her act opposite the legendary Chiranjeevi.
