People attribute different reasons for their success in life. In addition to hard work and unbeaten self-determination, learning from one's mistakes, banking on one's strengths, courage and confidence are also important. But for theists, prayer is equally important in all struggles for victory! Nayantara too believes the power of prayer and among the temples she visits is the Nellaiappar Temple in Tirunelveli.
After shooting a song sequence for the Vishal-starrer Sathyam in Tenkasi, the highest paid actress in the South headed straight to the Nellaiappar temple, which dates back to 700 AD and was built for Shiva and Parvathi (the consort to Lord Shiva) by the Pandyan kings. The unit members were surprised with the sudden change in her programme.
But why did she make this sudden visit? Possibly because she was nearby and possibly because she is about to join the Ajith-starrer Aegan unit in Yercaud.
It is the second time that the actress has visited this temple in which Lord Vishnu and sage Agastya are believed to have worshipped Shiva. Nayantara's first visit to the temple was a few years ago while she was shooting for the film Ayya, her debut venture.
