Actresses hailing from Kerala, after rising to popularity through movies in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi do not pay attention to the Malayalam cine field. Both Nayanthara and Asin are typical examples. Nayanthara, who did not mind Malayalam cine field during time when she was in peak, did just one movie there titled ‘Bodyguard’. Asin did not do even that.
There has been a sea change in Nayanthara’s mentality after severing of ties with Prabhudeva. There is now a love for mother tongue in her. She has decided doing Malayalam movies if there is suitable character.
Mammootty and Prithviraj are joining hands for movie ‘Suththiyal ArivaaL Natchaththiram’. It is usual for Kerala people to take movies with communist background. Examples are ‘Lal Salaam’, ‘Raththa SatchigaL’, and ‘Zindabad’. Vidya Balan was to do the movie starring Mammootty. Due to call sheet problems, Vidya Balan was not able to accept the chance. Nayanthara has been recommended for the role. Reports say that Nayanthara has conceded doing the role.
The movie ‘Pokkiri Raja’ pairing up Mammootty and Prithviraj was released few days back. It is to be noted that the movie turned utter flop.
