After the film Baba, Rajinikanth had very bitter experiences. Because of this, he kept away from acting. His fans were eagerly waiting for the announcement of his next film.
After two years Rajinikanth made the announcement regarding his film. That was Chandramukhi. There was a big question that who will be the heroine of the film. The list included the heroines who were in the peak at that time. Aishwarya Rai also featured in the list.
At that point of time, Rajinikanth ticked the name of Nayanthara. Nayanthara was just acting in one film which was titled Ayah at that time. Her career graph from that time is still escalating till now.
It is very doubtful that whether any other actresses in the industry would have survived in spite of her severe controversies. If an actress had such obstacles, she would have left the cinema world or she would have left the world. Nayanthara is the only person who overcame all her problems with a stern heart and proved herself once again.
She fell in love with Simbhu and parted ways with him because of difference of opinions. After this, the stills featuring Simbhu and Nayanthara kissing were leaked on the websites and newspapers. The whole Kollywood was burning because of this issue. When Kollywood thought, that Nayanthara will be eliminated from the industry, Nayanthara started concentrating in films. She was flooded with offers.
At this juncture, she became intimate with Prabhu Deva and this intimacy blossomed into romance. She tattooed Prabhu’s name in her wrist. Prabhu Deva also divorced his wife in order to marry Nayanthara. All of a sudden, this love also broke.
During this period she donned the role of Seetha in the film titled Sri Rama Rajiyam. People condemned her for acting in this role. But without bothering about anything, she continued to concentrate in her acting. The result, everyone praised her for donning this role. When she was shrouded with controversies, she did not react to them. She concentrated more and more in her work.
That was Nayan style. Even women adored her for her characteristics. She was considered as an ideal woman for the budding actresses. Men are crazy about her. So as on date everyone is fond of Nayanthara. The actor who pairs with Nayanthara in a film turns out to be a hit. The actor is also adored by people. Today young actors feel it is a safe bet to act with Nayanthara.
When any young hero is asked that who was is his favourite heroine, the answer is Nayanthara.
Sivakarthikeyan in one of his interview has openly mentioned that his favourite actress is Nayanthara. Vijay Sethupathi in a award function has mentioned that he is ready to kidnap Nayanthara.
When Nayanthara was approached to act in Rajini’s film, her house was not that big. Now her salary is crossing Rs 2 Crores. Jai who was not able to give a reasonable hit was able to make it big only after pairing with Nayanthara in Raja Rani. Now Jai is busy in five films. Nayan is the first choice of the big and small heroes. They are ready to reduce their salary to pair with her.
As per the statistics, today market is valued if Nayanthara is in the film. For example, Simbhu is pairing with Nayanthara in the film Idhu Namma Aalu. This film is being directed by Pandiraj. The market value of the film is Rs 25 Crores. This is attributed to Nayanthara. Unlike other actresses she will not differentiate between glamour and acting.
Her speciality is that she will rock in these both. In Billa, she acted very glamorously and in Raja Rani she performed excellently. Though she had acted with Rajinikanth, she never refused to act with S J Suryah. She was never reluctant to dance for a song in Sivakasi.
Why do all heroes like her?
A young hero who had acted with Nayanthara in two films said, “It is very simple. She will not differentiate between young and senior heroes. Whatever personal problems she may have her in life, it will not depict in the screens. She will totally transform herself before the camera. Above all the audience admire her. So it is added strength to the film that has her.”
Now she is donning the mother of three years old kid in the film titled Guest House. At a time when young heroes are waiting in beeline, she has the guts to do these kinds of roles. If she has the same mentality, no one can shake her for the next ten months. The hero of the Guest House is Aari who recently acted in the film Nedunchalai.
