Nazriya Nazim is said to be facing the heat after making a mountain out of a mole on the issue regarding the exposure of her ‘midriff-navel’ in a song sequence in her recently released Naiyaandi which has the national award-winning Dhanush opposite her.
Despite the publicity that the film got prior to its release thanks to the Nazriya episode, trade circles say that the film’s showing at the box-office has been below par.
Nazriya complained to the police and to the Nadigar Sangam against Sarkunam, the director of Naiyaandi, accusing him of ‘using a body-double’ in shooting a particular shot in a song which exposed her midriff and navel. Critics felt that Nazriya was talking too much for a newcomer as they were well aware that the national award-winning Sarkunam won’t stoop low to indulge in asking his heroines for skin-show.
Surprisingly enough, Nazriya withdrew her complaints within a couple of days saying that when she watched the film, she found that the said sequence wasn’t ‘too bad’ at all.
The drama has now resulted in her losing out in playing the heroine in Jiiva’s upcoming film titled Nee Nalla Varuvada and another film opposite a top hero. Jiiva is said to have told his director to look for another heroine who wont’ create trouble.
Nazriya has a solitary film in Tamil titled Thirumanan Ennum Nikkah oppoisite Jai and now hopes that she would get more offers. She is also said to be putting restrictions on the kind of costumes she would have to wear in films and in song sequences.
Realizing that the going may not be smooth in Kollywood from now onwards, Nazriya has signed up two new Malayalam films to stay away from Kollywood for the time being.
