Nayantara, one of the top actresses in South Cinema, began her career doing decent roles. She later switched over to glamour roles. Nayantara has done an item song in Rajinikanth's Shivaji. She says that she will do items songs only with Rajinikanth and no one else.
Though Nayantara has acted in the Blockbuster films like Chandramukhi, Ghajani and Lakshmi, none created any sensation. But her Billa-2007 does that. The film is much talked about, because it has Nayantara skin show. Her hot exposing and bikini scenes in the film have changed her image forever.
