Navya Nair had taken a break from movies to enjoy motherhood. She had given birth to a baby boy in 2010 and had managed to do one Malayalam movie Scene Onnu Nammude Veedu in 2012 amid being busy with her family affairs. Now, he is returning with Kannada movie Drishya, a remake of Malayalam hit movie Drishyam.
The Mallu babe has admitted that the marriage and motherhood had kept her away from movies. Navya Nair was not keen on returning at this stage but she could not reject the Drishya offer made by director P Vasu.
"Ever since I got married, my acting career has taken a backseat. I have been busy with my three-year old kid and life has been wonderful. I had no intention of returning to films but when I was offered Drishya, I felt it was a good project to be associated with," Navya told IANS.
Interestingly, when top actresses refuse to play the mother roles, Navya Nair had no qualms in accepting the role. "Even my director felt I was too young to play the mother, but I didn't have any problem because the story demanded it. I quite enjoyed playing the role and was not apprehensive about how audiences will react to it," she added.
Drishya stars Ravichandran in the lead role and it will release this Friday (June 20).
