With an excellent lineup of films such as Imaikka Nodigal, Kolayuthir Kaalam and Chiranjeeviâ€™s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in her kitty this year, Nayanthara is making very interesting career choices and it comes as no surprise as she seems to have taken full control of her career.
Recently, she signed a dark comedy titled Co Co, to be directed by debutant Nelson Dilip Kumar and bankrolled by Lyca Productions. With half a dozen projects in the offing, she recently gave her nod to another film, to be helmed by Arivazhagan of Eeram and Kuttram 23 fame. The project was announced in November last year and was supposed to go on the floors from December.
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. 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 KJ Rajesh as the face of the production company. Meanwhile, Nayanthara is expected to join the sets of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy from February. The film is to be 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.
