CHENNAI : Actress Nadiya Moidu, who did quite a few Malayalam films before entering the Tamil film industry, is set to make her television debut now.

She made her debut in Fazil’s movie ‘Nokketha Doorathu Kannum Nattu’ where she played the central role alongside Padmini. The film was released in 1984. The actress shot to fame instantly and the film was then remade by Fazil in Tamil and titled ‘Poove Poochudava’ with the same cast.

After this, she was rarely seen in Malayalam.

Then came the marriage and the long break.

‘M Kumaran s/o Mahalakshmi’ marked her comeback in Tamil. The success of this film brought a number of strong and interesting performance oriented roles for the actress in Tamil. There were always talks that she was going to star in Malayalam too, but nothing much happened.

Now, like most other actresses who make a comeback after marriage, Nadiya too will make her debut on TV. The debut programme will be a 26-episode television show on Vijay TV.
