It is reported that actress Nayantara has agreed to play the lead role in a film which has comedian Soori in a prominent (lead) role.
Of late, Nayan has only been taking up heroine-oriented scripts and films with frontline heroes. He has consciously been avoiding films opposite senior heroes but did Iru Mugan opposite Vikram last year. She is quite happy to pick and choose her roles as she is the ‘queen bee’ of Kollywood now.
It turns out that a debutant film-maker, who wants to make a full-length comedy, approached Soori to play the lead role. After Soori’s consent, the director spoke to Nayantara, narrated to her the entire script and asked her to star in the film. As Nayan liked the script, she is said to have given the ‘green signal’ to star in the film. Whether or not Soori gets to romance Nayantara, however, is not clear as of now.
Nayan’s decision to star in a film which has a comedian-turned-hero in a lead role has stumped her contemporaries and film critics. Meanwhile, her next major film to hit the screens would be the horror-thriller Dora which releases next Friday (31st March).
