With half a dozen projects in hand, Nayanthara recently gave her nod to another project, to be helmed by Arivazhagan of Eeram and Kuttram 23 fame. The project was announced last November and was supposed to go on the floors from December 2017.
Unfortunately, the film is yet to take off as the producer, who originally expressed interest to associate with the project, backed out for reasons unknown. Amid rumours that the project has been shelved, reliable sources have clarified that the film has not been dropped and that the entire team is on the lookout for a new producer.
Apparently, Nayanthara has come forward to help Arivazhagan find a producer for the project as sheâ€™s very keen on doing the film. It must be noted that it was Nayanthara who helped director Gopi Nainar find a producer for his path breaking film Aramm when she came on board. According to reliable sources, she is set to approach a few producers with the script and convince one of them to back this venture.
There are also rumours that Aramm was bankrolled by Nayanthara, who made her former manager and close friend K Rajesh as the face of the production company. Meanwhile, Nayanthara has started shooting for a horror film with Aramm producer. Dubbed Nayan 63, the film is being directed by Sarjun, who rose to fame with shorts such as Maa and Lakshmi.
Nayanthara is also busy with Ajithâ€™s Viswasam and Chiranjeeviâ€™s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, based on the life of Kurnool-based freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. Directed by Surender Reddy, the film also stars Vijay Sethupathi, Amitabh Bachchan and Sudeep in key roles. It has also been confirmed that Nayanthara will work on Aramm 2, which will be directed by Gopi Nainar.
