Nayantara, the Diwali queen

October 12, 2006
A flashback tells us that Nayantara did not exactly arrive on the movie scene with a bang. Of course, her first film Manassinakkare directed by Satyan Anthikad was a huge, huge hit, but this had little to do with the heroine. The film had a good story, and the hype was not about the young heroine but the return of veteran Sheela -- the heroine of Ramu Kariat's National award wining cult success, Chemmeen (1965). The classic heroine hogged all the limelight, while Nayantara looked simple. After a couple of films with Malayalam superstars, she got the offer to act in a Tamil film, Ayya opposite Sarath Kumar.
