Happy birthday Nayanthara!


Today is Nayanthara’s birthday.

So what is she doing? Where is she? She is slippery as an eel and adding mystery to her already mysterious nature, the actress is on a self-imposed hiatus and unavailable to the media and even close friends.

So what happened to the effervescent girl from Kerala who made it to the top with her hard work and luck, decide to take a conscious decision to stay away from limelight. We try to piece together the various links from our memory files.

She is the last of the top heroines in Tamil who command an opening and is envy and inspiration to other Mallu heroines making a beeline to Kollywood to make it big?

Nayan was on a professional high after her last release Boss Engira Baskaran turned out to be one of the highest grossers of 2010.

At a time when her contemporaries are scouting for roles, Nayan has turned down offers from top directors like Lingusamy, Vikram Kumar and AL Vijay to be the heroines in their films.

She has the off-beat Electra and her Kannada film with superstar Upendra for release. However the big news is that Nayan has signed (her last film?) Sri Rama Rajyam, a mythological in Telugu opposite Balakrishna, her hero in that super hit Simha.

Tollywood buzz is that she signed on the dotted line after much persuasion and she agreed to do the film as she plays Goddess Sita in this remake of the old NTR classic directed by veteran director Bapu. The film is scheduled to start rolling from December first week in Hyderabad.
