CHENNAI: South Indian actress Nayantara, who started her career with the Malayalam film ‘Manassinakkare’ in 2003, has come a long way in the South film industry. She is one South actress, who is balancing her work in all four South Indian languages and this has given her a strong foothold in the industry.
However, the year 2009 was not quite good for the 26-year-old actress as she had just one successful release in the form of Suriya starrer ‘Aadhavan’. It was released in October and was among very few of successful movies of the year.
In 2010, Nayantara has made her comeback with a bang. All the films starring her in the lead role were commercial success in this year. She had four super hit releases in all the South Indian languages. The list of her successful journey of 2010 includes ‘Bodyguard’ in Malayalam, ‘Simha’ in Kannada, ‘Boss Engira Bhaskaran’ and ‘Simha’ in Telugu.
‘Boss Engira Bhaskaran’ released with extremely positive reviews and turned out to be a blockbuster. On the other hand, ‘Simha’ turned out to be one of the highest-grossing Telugu movies of 2010.
Above all, Nayantara received standing ovation from the audience at the International Film Festival of India in Goa for her spectacular performance in the Malayalam movie ‘Electra’.
Nayan is obviously excited about this achievement of the year and says that she feels privileged to have acted in some of the most successful movies in the South. She has become the first South Indian heroine in the history to have all hit films in the four southern languages in a single year.
