For fans of Nayan, the biggest thrill came when Mammootty's new flick Parunthu was to star Nayantara as heroine. But their joy may be shortlived as rumours are flying that she may not be able to set aside a month for the shooting of Parunthu, as she's busy in Kollywood shooting for Rajinikanth's Kuselan and Ajith's Aegan and the dates would clash.
Her last full length role in Malayalam was in Mammootty's Rappakal, a moderate hit. Nayantara has always maintained that her role in Rappakal was the best she has ever done.
Parunthu's director M. Padmakumar has decided not to have a heroine opposite Mammootty, as the superstar has had no heroines in many of his films.
Mammootty will play the role of a private financier Purushu, who loves none and is not loved by any one.
