When Nayanthara first made her debut in Tamil with 2005 film Ayya, she was not expected to survive in the industry for such a long time. But, she surprised everyone and proved her critics wrong by becoming the most sought after and top paid female actor in southern cinema. Nayanthara not just survived the industry, but she also exceeded all expectations. Now, she commands a significant fan following like her male counterparts. So much so that she is dubbed as the ‘Lady Superstar’ by the industry insiders, a reputation difficult to earn for female actors in a male-dominated field.
She is among the handful of south Indian female actors who are known for their fitness. She redefined herself in terms of her physical appearance and acting skills and overcame relationship issues and professional challenges to reach where she is today. Lady Superstar turned 32 on Friday.
