Who makes Nayan’s hottest jodi?
Nayanthara teaming up with Malayalam top star Nivin Pauly has been making news. While Kollywood casting is usually hero-centric, with the heroine being incidental, Nayanthara has bucked the trend. When it comes to the in-demand actress, it matters who she is cast opposite. We check out the films in which Nayan has had the best chemistry with her heroes.
Naanum Rowdy Thaan: Nayanthara played a deaf girl in this film which went on to become a super hit. The hero was Vijay Sethupathy, cast in the role of a man who pretends to be a tough rowdy and gets drawn into a complicated set of circumstances. Both stars delivered understated, convincing performances and audiences were rooting for their romance.
Thani Oruvan: The film made news for the cool villain role played by Aravind Swamy. It was also one of the best films of the protagonist, Jeyam Ravi. Nayanthara featured in the romantic track and there was super chemistry between her and Jeyam Ravi.
Raja Rani: The 2013 film saw a very charming Arya and Nayanthara come together. This rom-com by Atlee was one of the best films of the year and the dynamics between its lead stars was one of the keys to the film’s success.
Arrambam: This much-hyped film saw Ajith play a man on a mission. There was no romance between him and leading lady, Nayanthara. But they were collaborators on the mission that the hero is on and showed off her tough side in the film.
Puthiya Niyamam: This was no tender romance. Nayanthara plays a married woman seeking justice in this Malayalam thriller. She delivered a heavyweight performance with the seasoned Mammootty matching it with his subtle and refined acting.
Villu: We rewind to some years ago to the full-on masala flicks of Ilayathalapathy Vijay. In Villu he teamed up with a young Nayanthara and there were great songs and romantic sequences that make the film very watchable.
