The Greeku Veerudu actor is playing Vidya Balan’s character in the Telugu-Tamil remake of Kahaani
Nayanthara is seemingly going strong and steady in her second innings down South. The actor is part of a line-up of promising projects, and notable amongst these is the Tamil and Telugu remake of 2013 hit Hindi flick, Kahaani.
The film, directed by Sekhar Kammula, one of the popular filmmakers of Tollywood, has been titled Anamika. The project went on the floors earlier this year. The original movie was shot in Kolkata, But Nayan’s Anamika will be based in Hyderabad.
Nayan has apparently pretty kicked about this role and has given bulk dates for the project. “In the movie, Nayanthara will be playing a totally new character, that of a pregnant woman. She has done plenty of homework for the role,” sources say.
The director hopes to complete the shoot in 50 days and hence will be shooting continuously. Earlier there was a buzz that the role would go to Sneha, but it’s Nayan who’s bagged it eventually.
