It seems as if the comeback time is working pretty well for Nayanthara. The latest buzz about the Kerala beauty is that the ace director of Indian cinema, Mani Ratnam, has approached her to do a special role in his upcoming flick Kadal. Nayanthara, who is already on a roll with numerous opportunities falling at her doorsteps, post her break up with Prabhu Deva, seems to have got excited with this opportunity.
Sources close to the movie unit of Kadal say that Mani Ratnam is very eager to cast Nayanthara for a role in the movie. There were earlier reports that Mani Ratnam has roped in Samantha and Lakshmi Manchu to play the female lead roles in the movie. However, due to date issues and illness, Samantha walked out of the movie a couple of weeks ago. Hence, it looked as if yesteryear veteran actor Radha’s second daughter Tulasi may get the chance of playing the role, which Samantha was about to play. However, now Mani Ratnam’s interest on Nayanthara gives room for a doubt that whether Nayanthara will play the same role or a different one.
Quiz the sources; they say that they cannot reveal details about the characters of the movie. In the meanwhile, it seems as if Nayanthara has given a positive nod to the ace director in response to his offer. The sources reveal that Nayanthara has agreed to play the role without listening to its details and the script, just because of the fact that Mani Ratnam is directing the movie.
When asked about the development of the movie, the sources say that Mani Ratnam is working very hard and sincere to develop Kadal, which he wants to be picture perfect like his other movies. The sources also add that Mani has already completed the shooting of a considerable portion of the movie, which stars Gautham, son of actor Karthick, playing the lead role!
