One of the biggest hits in Nayanthara’s career was the Malayalam film Elektra, which hit the silver screens in 2010. A psychological thriller directed by Shyamaprasad, the film starred Nayantara in the lead role with Manisha Koirala, P Sreekumar, Prakash Raj, Biju Menon and Skanda Ashok in the star cast. The latest news is that the Telugu version of the film will be out in theatres under the title Lady Tiger.

The screenplay for the original had been penned by Shyamaprasad and Kiran Prabhakar. The technical crew of the film comprises Alphons Joseph for music, Sanu Varghese for cinematography and Vinod Sukumaran for editing. Elektra premiered at the International Film Festival of India in November 2010 and its international premiere happened at the 7th Dubai International Film Festival.

The Telugu version is expected to hit the silver screens later this year.

According to sources in the know, Elektra is based on the Greek mythological character Electra, but with tweaks in the plot to suit the taste of Indian audiences. The film’s story, set in an aristocratic family in Kerala, was deeply inspired by Electra by Sophocles, Electra by Euripides, Oresteia by Aeschylus and Mourning Becomes Electra by Eugene O’Neill.

Nayanthara, also known as the Lady Superstar, is one of the most wanted heroines in the Tamil and Telugu film industries. She has a slew of films in various stages of production lined up for release this year and that includes Imaikka Nodigal, Kolaiyuthir Kaalam and Kolamaavu Kokila in Tamil and Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in Telugu.

The actor made her acting debut with the Sathiyan Anthikad directorial Manassinakkare in Mollywood in 2003 and since then has acted in numerous films in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. She has shared screen space with almost all the top stars including Rajinikanth, Mammootty, Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna, Dhanush, Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi and others.
