Bhavana quits Malayalam , Bhavana on a roll . These were the headlines on various websites the other day. The news is related to the fact that Bhavana has moved completely to Tamil. Sometime back we noticed that Bhavana had started speaking Tamil , but still she used to make the trek to Kerala to do Malayalam films, the most recent one being Chess.
Bhavana’s first Tamil film Chittiram Pesuthadi did not click in the initial release, but when it was re-released, it became a big success and Bhavana got noticed. Now she is acting in Veyyil, a film produced by Shankar, Kizhakku Kadarkarai Salai with Srikanth and she has committed to act in a movie titled Deepavali with Jeyam Ravi. Based on this information, the article declares that she has overtaken Nayantara .
We think that is a bit premature to say. In Tamil Film Industry, the ultimate honor is in acting as Rajnikanth’s heroine and Nayantara has already done that. She also acted along with Surya, and Vijay, all among the top box office stars in Tamil. She is now doing an item number with Chiranjeevi. Compared to that Bhavana has not made it to the big league yet. Her heroes so far are Narain, Srikanth, and Jeyam Ravi, who are a rung below in the Tamil Industry food chain.
Bhavana got noticed for her acting skills in Chittiram Pesuthadi, while Nayantara will be remembered for her kissing poster with Simbu in Vallavan and the item number in Ghajini. Both these actresses have chosen two different paths. Nayantara is in no-inhibitions, clothes are optional mode, while Bhavana is conservative and is concentrating on roles which give her a chance to display her histrionics. It is truly wonderful to see that even with such a stand, Bhavana is getting offers, which she truly deserves. It is indeed a loss for Malayalam film industry, which is not able to offer meaty roles for their female leads.
