There have reports recently that the Lady Superstar Nayanthara will be venturing into production by floating her own production house. The reports also went on to add that the film will be helmed by Vignesh Shivan with Atharvaa playing the lead role.
However, sources close to the actor have confirmed that there is no truth in it. Nayanthara is busy with a number of films that are in various stages of production right now and she has no time to venture into production. Also, Vignesh Shivan is scripting a new film with a top star in mind to play the lead role in it. With this being the scenario, there is no chance of Nayan turning a producer at this point of time, we hear.
The Nayan starrer Imaikkaa Nodigal, which also has Atharvaa in the lead role, is into the post-production mode with the filmmakers planning its release soon.
She also has the biopic Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, an ambitious project directed by Surendhar Reddy featuring Chiranjeevi, Vijay Sethupathi and Amitabh Bachchan. It is a biopic on the late freedom fighter Uyyalalwada Narasimha Reddy.
Nayanâ€™s heroine-centric film, directed by Nelson Dilipkumar, Kolamavu Kokila, is also scheduled for release this year. Then she has the big ticket Viswaasam starring Ajith as her lead pair. Directed by Siva, the film is scheduled for release this Diwali. And then she has Kolaiyuthir Kaalam, another heroine-centric film featuring her in the lead role. The film, directed by Chakri Toleti will hit the silver screens this year.
It was also recently announced that her project with director Arivazhagan of Eeram and Kuttram 23 fame has not been shelved and the team is on a lookout for a new producer. With as many as five films scheduled for release this year and early next, Nayan doesnâ€™t have the time to turn producer, say sources.
