Nayantara is a big name in both Telugu and Tamil film industries. She made it to the top in a short span of time and her bikini act in Billa catapulted her to the top. Though there is a good demand in Telugu films, Nayantara has thrown her weight towards Tamil films for the past some time. She had become familiar with the Telugu audiences with her films like Chandramukhi, Ghajini, Lakshmi, Boss, Yogi, Dubai Sreenu and Tulasi. She became one of the top heroines in Telugu in no time. She soon earned the name for having glamour besides good acting talents.
Nayantara cashed in on the demand and craze for her and hiked her remuneration to one crore. But unfortunately for Nayantara her subsequent films bombed at the box office. As such her demand has came down. The producers and directors were also miffed with the rate quoted by her and she now does not have too many films in hand. Nayan is now seriously considering to bring down her remuneration.
After having acted opposite Venkatesh in Tulasi in 2007, she came before the Telugu audiences with Salute last year. After a long gap, she has signed a film opposite NT Ramarao, for a film to be directed by VV Vinayak. Though Ileana was considered for the role in the beginning, she could not adjust the call sheets as she had already committed four other films. This has made the producer to knock at Nayantara's door. There are high expectations regarding this film which is to be produced by Vallabhaneni Vamsimohan.
