  Nayathara entered the tinsel world debuting in the Malayalam film 'Manassinakkare', directed by Sathyan Anthikad opposite Jayaram (2003). The Kerala-born Christian girl from Tiruvalla, whose real name is Diana Kurien, had completed her B.A. literature and was doing her Chartered accountancy when films beckoned her. Her striking appearance and acting talent was appreciated by the Kerala audience. The huge commercial success of "Manassinakkare" helped her career in a big way.

Then came her second film, "Vismayathumbath"(2004) by Fazil, with super star Mohanlal. Though the film did not fare well at the box office, Nayanthara has become a noted actress in Kerala film industry. Her pretty looks captured the attention of Malayalam film buffs. She again did a film with Mohanlal, "Natturajavu".




The pretty actress stepped into Tamil films with 'Ayya' (2005) where Sarat Kumar was her hero. Her second release in Tamil was the much awaited Chandramukhi where she paired with superstar Rajnikanth. Barely out of her teens and hardly a year in the industry, nayantara seems to have done good career-wise. But strangely her pairings have all been with senior heroes. In between she came back to the Malayalam industry with two films Thaskaraveeran and Raapakal where Mammootty was her hero.







After crossing the border she has changed her 'seedha sadha' image and has started taking up glamorous roles. Nayanthara and Simbu's intimate life-sized posters in "Vallavan" created shock waves in Chennai. Similar excitement resulted when glamorous posters of "Kalvanin Kadhali" were posted all over Chennai. Her maiden Telugu film 'Lakshmi' has made a big splash in Tollywood. This glamour queen is one of the busiest actresses in the southern film industry today.

Interview with Nayanthara

Looking pretty and glamorous in a black outfit, Nayanthara was late by an hour for the press meet, apologised profusely, and went on to answer the questions fielded to her.

How was it to act with Rajinikant?

"He used to come and see every shot. If it was good he'll appreciate it… and if he felt there could be an improvement… he's very dedicated, sincere and punctual. We can learn a lot from him personally and professionally.:."

What's her character like in 'Chandramukhi'?

"My name is Durga in the film. I knew it was not the lead character when I committed to it... but I'm very happy with it, and that I'm paired with the Superstar…", says the actress.

On why she's acting with only senior heroes…

"I got offers only with senior actors that's why… and when you get an offer with Rajini Sir, you don't say 'no'... I didn't have any feeling of age difference, but I don't know if he felt it. With Sharat Kumar too it was a very comfortable experience…"

Her roles so far, whether it was her Malayalam films or her two Tamil releases, have been homely ones. Would she do glamorous roles where it needs some revealing outfits?

"If the character demands one to be modern, one has to. We can't keep a boundary for glamour. It depends on the character and on each person too, as to how much she wants to expose... and also how comfortable she's doing it. In my case, it depends on my role. If it demands glamorous outfits, I'm not averse to it. I've not as such set a boundary for it."

What's the difference between acting in Malayalam cinema and Tamil cinema? While most actors say that the two are not very different, Nayanthara speaks differently.

"The two fields are totally different. Where the remuneration is concerned, and also where the script and charecterisation is concerned. Tamil industry has a bigger market. In Tamil films they give more importance to glamour elements and songs…"

A scribe asked her about the casting couch. The actress didn't understand it. Someone from the back quipped 'compromises?'

Nayanthara again failed to catch it, had a hasty consultation with her manager and then replied, "I cannot really say anything right now. I'm very new to the Malayalam and Tamil industry."
