Nazriya Nazim, the latest Kerala import to have landed up ‘successfully’ in Kollywood, is gearing up for the release of her third ‘direct’ Tamil film. Nazriya had an amazing year in 2013 wherein she tasted success as well as received some bad press for raisinng what seemed an ‘unwarranted’ controversy in respect of her film Naiyaandi.
Nazriya said that Sarkunam, director of Naiyaandi, had shot a sequence which exposed her midriff and navel. Though she didn’t shoot for that particular song, a ‘body double’ was used in her place without getting her consent, she had said.
She even lodged complaints with Producers’ Council and with the police and withdrew them finally after watching the film and feeling convinced that the sequence was ‘acceptable’ to her.
Addressing newsmen at the meet-the-press event which was convened in the city on the eve of release of her upcoming film Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah.
When the press wanted her views on the Naiyaandi controversy, Nazriya said she was here to talk only about her upcoming film and not about Naiyaandi.”The controversy, however, helped me in many respects as film-makers relaized what sort of roles are to be offered to me,” she said laughing.
