Actor Nayanthara has an interesting line up of films coming up, out of which Ajay Gnanamuthu’s Imaikaa Nodigal features her in a very different role.

According to the director, she plays a CBI officer from Bengaluru in the film, which also stars Atharvaa, Raashi Khanna and Anurag Kashyap. 

Talking to Deccan Chronicle, Ajay said, “She will be seen as Atharvaa’s sister in the film. Initially, I was apprehensive whether she would say yes to my script. When I narrated it, she was very impressed and gave her nod immediately.”

He went on to claim that he has given an image makeover to Nayanthara: “We changed her hairstyle and gave her a slick look, as she plays a CBI officer from Bengaluru. There are no action scenes for her. She has given a really intense performance.” 

He also confirmed that Vijay Sethupathi plays a cameo in the film and that his role is heavily guarded, as he wants it to come as a big surprise for audiences. 

Talking about how he roped in Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap for a pivotal role, he said, “Initially, director Gautham Vasudev Menon was supposed to do the villain’s role. Due to his other commitments, he could not allocate dates for us. Then we thought of Anurag, who played the baddie in AR Murugadoss’s Akira. Since we felt that he was apt for the story, we roped him in."

The film is a crime thriller about six murders, executed in the same fashion, and the mystery behind these killings forms the crux of the film.

The first teaser of the film was recently released and has clocked over 1.5 million views.
