NAYATHARA first entered into Malayalam movies and later extended her reign to other languages like Tamil and Telungu. As a newbie she was lucky enough to be introduced by one of the finest directors Malayalam movie has ever witnessed- Sathyan Anthikad. Nayanthara’s first movie was in Malayalam and it was named ‘Manasinakkaree”. This one was a family hit allover Kerala and she made a very impressive debut performance in this movie. Many then considered her as a rising young star in the horizon of Malayalam movie and little did they know that they’re just underestimating her.
Nayanthara is a famous leading light but has won no awards to authenticate her talent as a regional actress. Nayanthara as a South Indian Actress has showcased her work in the movies - Billa, Sathyam, Yaaradi Nee Mohini, Tulasi, Sivaji: The Boss, Dubai Seenu, Madhumathi, Yogi and Nandini.
