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
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.
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.
