Nayantara is one of the very few actresses, who can strike a balance between glamour and homely roles in movies. She played the role of a household girl in films like 'Manassinakkare', 'Ayya' and 'Chandramukhi'. However in contrast, she took to glamour and enthralled film-buffs in E, Thalaimagan, Vallavan, Billa and Tulsi . She is keen on doing a role in an off-beat movie and would like to dub in her own voice for the film.
Her versatile performance and immense dancing skills has won a lot of hearts and career wise she is riding high in south Indian films. This glamour queen has become one of the busiest as well as the highest paid actresses in the Southern film industry today.
