Nayantara express to stardom



Before the Konkan railway route came into existence, people traveling from Kerala to Mumbai had to take a train called Jayanti Janata. This train used to leave Kerala and enter Tamil Nadu. From there it would enter Andhra Pradesh and finally Maharashtra. Malayali actress Nayantara seems to be taking the same route to stardom now.In Tamil she acted as Rajnikanth’s heroine in Chandramukhi and Surya’s heroine in Ghajini. Her item number in Sivakasi with Vijay was very much noticed, so was the poster of Simbu biting her lips. Now she is having a new release, Kalvanin Kathali with S J Suryah.

Now it seems people are going ga ga over her.

Nayantara is riding a wave in Kollywood and the audience especially the youth is simply crazy about her. Recently at the wedding reception of actor Ramesh in Mayor Ramanathan Chettiar Hall in Chennai, the crowd went berserk seeing the vivacious actress.Dressed in a simple off-white sari with blue border, Nayan looked ravishing and radiant and was the cynosure of all eyes. Everybody including the VIP guests had to wait till Nayan was escorted by security guards to the lift where a minor stampede among well-dressed guests took place as all of them wanted to get into the same lift! [Going ga-ga over Nayan!]

She tried her luck in Telugu movies, and has hit the jackpot there also. Her first Telugu film, Lakshmi, with Venkatesh has become a hit and it seems she will be acting along with Nagarjuna soon.

Nayantara prefers to stay in hotels when she works in Tamil and Telugu films. These days, she spends most of her time in Hyderabad, thanks to her booming career in Telugu. A few days ago, a group of politicians and their entourage had visited the hotel for some discussions. When they spotted Nayantara in the premises, they flocked to get her autographs!!!

Also it seems Raj Kumar Santoshi has offered her a role in his new movie which means Jayanti Janata will reach Mumbai soon.


  1. This Jayanthi Janatha express is actually going at the speed of Rajdhani express.. But the tracks in the way are not strong and I hope that it doesnot derail and stop forever in its path, unable to restart or retrace its path 😉 !!

  2. Well “9” may make it big time in Tamil and Telugu, where the audience drool over heroines with lots of flab (Nayan, Namitha, Nagma etc – tho exceptions like Asin, Meera, Trisha and Simran are there). But in Bollywood slim is in – Take any A class heroine and youd see them not having too much flab – be it Preity, Rani, Priyanka, Kareena etc. So her chances of survival are remote.

    However, as a malayali I would be proud if 9 does well in Bollywood. I think most of us would

  3. Looks like Nayantara express collided with Chimbu express!

  4. Well, maybe, Raj would have called her for Bollywood Movie. But is it for a leading role or a side role? Noone knows that.
