It is a fact that 2008 was not a good year for Navya Nair in Malayalam. Though she had only one film in her mother tongue so far (Kavyam), directed by Anish Varma and Santhosh starring Sureshgopi in the lead, Navya Nair was lucky in bagging more opportunities from other languages, especially Tamil and Kannada. This year, she signed three Tamil films (Aadum Koothu, Sila Nerangalil, Rasikkum Seemane and Raman Thediya Seethai) and two Kannada films (Gaja and Namma Yejamanru).
After going through a stiff time in Malayalam so far, Navya seems to be back with a big banner film Calendar opposite Malayalam superstar Prithviraj. Navya is presently on the sets of Calendar, directed by debutante Mahesh, planned as a hilarious comedy and slated for a Vishu release.
Navya is also the heroine of another Malayalam film Violet, starring Sureshgopi in the lead. Expected to hit the theatres in the beginning of 2009, Violet has completed the shoot for its first schedule.
Navya has also bagged a meaty role opposite Sarath Kumar in an untitled Tamil movie directed by Sanjay Ram. This movie will also have Mammootty in a prominent role. Let's hope 2009 will be a better year for Navya Nair in Malayalam.
