Sizzling Nayantara, who knows a thing or two about keeping her fans excited in her though she is past 30, is all set to scare her fans and the audiences with her upcoming film Maya which pits her opposite Aree of Nedunchalai fame.
Nayantara, who recently played the mother of two children opposite Mammootty in her recent Malayalam film Baskar The Rascal, plays the mother of a kid in Maya which is getting ready for its release in theatres. Billed as a horror film, Nayan’s performance in the film has already come in for huge praise from Unit members and insiders.
Usually, such scripts become huge hits in Hollywood where stories having single woman with kids as main characters have historically done very well, thanks to the sympathy factor that goes with them. The trailer of Maya released yesterday starts showing an old Mental Asylum, a book and a helpless-looking Nayantara who has a kid to look after.
Young mother struggling with a kid or two has always managed to touch the viewers’ hearts: be it Jyothika in Vettaiyadu Vilaiyaadu and 36 Vayadhinile, Trisha in Yennai Arindhaal, Meena in Rhythm or Sridevi in English Vinglish. It appears that it is now Nayantara’s turn to get into the viewers mind, earn their sympathies before scaring them off!
