Last month, Tamil cinema’s resident ‘Lady Superstar’ Nayanthara gave strong proof of her abilities as a performer when she delivered a solid performance in ‘Aramm’ and earned rave reviews along the way. A gripping social –drama, it featured her in the role of a competent district collector and touched upon the issue of water scarcity. The film not only impressed movie buffs but members of the film fraternity as well. Praising the film, young star Sivakarthikeyan had said that the film is bold one as it tackles a serious issue head-on without bothering about commercial viability.
“There is no entertainment quotient in Nayanthara’s Aramm and the makers have made a bold decision of straight away jumping into the strong content. It is a wonderful and touching film which is a must watch for one and all as it touches upon important and essential issues and engages audiences throughout,” he had added.
Now, Nayan is back in the limelight and that too for an awesome reason. As it so happens, a photo from the sets of her ‘Imaikkaa Nodigal’ is going viral and creating a buzz amongst movie buffs. In it, she can be seen chilling with her co-star Atharva. As expected, she looks lovely and seems to in a relaxed mood. Similarly, Atharvaa too looks his usual handsome self and floors fans with his charming personality. Seeing the two on the big screen together on the big screen will indeed be a treat for movie buffs.
In case you did not know, ‘Imaikkaa Nodigal’ is a thriller and has been directed by R Ajay Gnanamuthu. Besides Nayan-Atharvaa, it also has Raashi Khanna and Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap in the lead. Sometime ago, while speaking about the decision to cast the ‘Dev D’ director, Ajay had said that he is the right choice for the role.
“I’m a huge fan of Anurag’s films. When I saw him in Murugadoss’s Akira, as the cop-villain, I was convinced he was the perfect choice for the role of villain Rudra. I saw Anurag’s rare combination of subtlety, intensity and unpredictability which is what I needed. Rudra holds the story together. If I couldn’t cast Anurag, I felt my film wouldn’t be complete. The characteristics Anurag displayed were in sync with what I had written. He evokes such fear with his subtle and sheer villainy, making him the perfect choice,” he had told a leading website.
Well, we wish the team of ‘Imaikkaa Nodigal’ good luck and hope that the film turns out to be a success.
On a related note, Nayan will soon be seen alongside Sivakarthikeyan in ‘Velaikkaran’. The film has been directed by Mohan Raja and is a thriller. Slated to hit screens on December 22, it also has Malayalam superstar Fahadh Faasil in the lead. The heartthrob will be seen essaying a negative role in what is the first Tamil movie of his career. The film has already created a buzz amongst fans courtesy its songs and could turn out to be a hit at the box office. The audio launch of ‘Velaikkaran’ was held a few days ago and it proved to be quite a star-studded event. Speaking at the audio launch, SK had said that he admires Nayanthara for her punctuality and her search for perfection.
“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 added.
Besides ‘Velaikkaran’, she also has ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ and ‘Jai Simha’ in her kitty. ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ is a period drama and is being directed by Surender Reddy. As far as ‘Jai Simha is concerned, it is an action-drama and will see Nayan star opposite NBK. The two have previously collaborated for successful films like ‘Sree Rama Rajyam’. As such, fans are bound to high hopes from ‘Jai Simha’. The film has been directed by Tamil director KS Ravikumar and will hit screens early next year.
As far as Atharvaa is concerned, his film with Hansika Motwani was launched yesterday and it created a buzz amongst fans.
