Nayanthara’s enjoying her birthday break at the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. Her brother is a resident in the emirate. What birthday gift is she expecting? “My family always loves to surprise me at the last minute,” she says. Luckily, a clash in dates over filming has left her with a few days free at the same time as her birthday, giving her a well-earned rest.
The actress, who appeared in the Kollywood version of Ghajini is also known for her roles in Billa, Kuselan and Sathyam amongst others. She has just finished her work on Villu and will also soon be seen doing an item number in what is shaping up to be a Malayalam hit, Twenty:20.
Once again, Nayanthara is faced with a charge of indecency – this time over her new film Aegan that was released at Diwali. The movie is a remake of Main Hoon Na. Does she intend to change her attitude towards doing racy item numbers? “Why should I?” she asks, “My fans have accepted me in such roles. And it’s not easy to be convincing as a glam girl in films as a lot of hard work goes into it.”
