Nothing wrong with glamshow: Nayantara
The glam queen debuted in Tamil opposite Sarath Kumar in ‘Aiya’, directed by Hari. Her big break was the Rajnikanth mega hit ‘‘Chandramukhi’’. Before that, she had done a few Malayalam films. Nayan has also made her presence felt in Telugu with a few blockbusters such as ‘Dubai Seenu’.
Excerpts from an exclusive interview with the sensational beauty...
Q: Do you feel sidelined in Tamil films, which are basically hero-oriented?
A: Though the film industry is male-dominated and male-oriented, it still counts as to how an actress makes use of her opportunities, however small they are, she gets. Isn’t it a fact that many leading heroines of today have all done miniscule and insignificant roles in their earlier films?
Q: Won’t you be doing heroine-oriented films?
A: Of course I would, as and when I do get such on opportunity.
Q: You seem to be more inclined towards glamourous roles...
A: Of course, I look glamourous and am acting glamourous, what’s wrong in it? Haven’t I looked homely and unglamourous in ‘Aiyaa’, ‘Eee’, ‘Chandramukhi’ and ‘Yaaradi Nee Mohini’?
Q: Any qualms about the many rumours about you?
A: I hardly bother to read them and react. I’ve been a topic of rumours right from my college days and after coming to film industry, I have kind of got used to it. This is a price, I’m afraid, one has to pay for stardom and for being popular.
Q: Do you miss anything due to your huge popularity?
A: Of course, yes! I have lost much of my liberty; I can’t shop around independently without people being aware of it or surrounding me. I can’t just like that go to a restaurant of my choice and eat there. More than this, I have to look beautiful, slim and trim as many youngsters take after actresses like us as their role-models. I sweat it out to remain slim and look good. In a way, it’s a kind of social responsibility!
Q: What’s the secret behind your slim figure?
A: I don’t do a lot of exercising but manage my food habits and keep them under control. Ice cream, soft drinks, oil and sweets are a big ‘no’ for me. I also use different creams, depending on the season, to protect my skin from getting affected.
Q: Your favourite food items...
A: I will not define myself in a single line; in fact, I’m not sure if I can do that. If things don’t turn out as I have expected, I do get disappointed. I can’t have something in my mind and say something. Whatever is in my mind is reflected on my face. I react to things depending on my mood.
I love listening to melodies and like travelling. I like to keep on travelling in a car on an endless road. Family is my biggest strength. My family is very affectionate towards me but they haven’t pampered me. They’ve drawn a thin line in between.
