Nazriya Nazim is the newsmaker of the week. The actress, from nowhere, hit the headlines when she announced on her Facebook account that she filed a case against the makers of Naiyaandi for using a body double without her permission. On Tuesday (October 8), the story took an ugly turn with her meeting the Chennai Police Commissioner and making shocking allegations against the director. But the entire drama has raised doubts over the controversial episode and made people to wonder whether it is a publicity stunt.
The actress has maintained a clean image all these years. If we trace back her history, we'll not find a single cheap incident in her career. This factor made people to believe her what she was saying in the beginning. But when they came to know about which sequence she was talking about, it surprised many because the scene was neither vulgar nor there was something to worry about. It was a sequnce where hero touches the navel of the heroine.
According to Nazriya Nazim, she was not part of the scene and director Sarkunam shot the scene with a body double. She had refused to act the scene, since she was not comfortable doing it and it was not in the best interest of her family and community. Continue reading the story on the slideshow...
Nazriya Claims Made People To Notice The Scene
People, who saw the trailer, had not given much importance to the scene as it passes in a blink of an eye. So, her decision of going to public made people to see the trailer again and again to ensure that she was talking about the particular scene.
Did Sarkunam Threatened Her?
In her complaint, Nazriya Nazim has accused director Sarkunam of threatening to disrespect her community if she objects for the sequence. If it is true, why she did not file a complaint of abusing and threatening with police, before lodging a complaint against the director at Nadigar Sangam.
Abusing-Threatening Case Bigger...
It is simply because the abusing case would have been a bigger issue than the intimate scene, which is objected by her.
Timing Of The Controversy
The timing of her decision to go before media gives another reason for people to believe that it is a publicity gimmick as the film is releasing this week.
On the other end, Sarkunam has challenged Nazriya Nazim to watch the song with media persons and prove that she is the one dancing with Dhanush in that particular song. What is her response to his statement? It will be interesting to know.
Will Sarkunam File Case?
We also have to see whether Sarkunam, who claimed that he would file a defamation case against Nazriya Nazim, will keep his words.
Nonetheless, traders say that Naiyaandi lacked publicity and it was only the Dhanush factor, which had made people to await for the release. Now, this incident has given a good publicity to the movie and the actress. It is just a win-win situation for Naiyaandi Team.
Releasing This Friday
Dhanush and Nazriya Nazim starrer Naiyaandi is a comedy entertainer. It is releasing worldwide on October 11.
