Nayantara, we guess is a lucky charm for Rajnikanth? She was Rajni’s heroine in Chandramukhi, which sky rocketed her to superstardom. And when Shankar decided to have a top actress to do the introductory song with the superstar, he went ahead and signed Nayan.
Remember that any top actress or item number girl in Bollywood would have given their right hand to do the song, and Shankar never repeats a pair who has featured in some other film. He went ahead and did it because the whole song is supposed to evoke nostalgia, and the audiences are getting their first glimpse of the hero in a song.
There is a Nayan craze in Tamilnadu and Andhra, which is sure to make the song popular with the masses. The song Balelakka… (see pic) was shot in Wai near Pune with hundreds of Theyyam and puli dancers from Kerala. The costumes were specially designed by Manish Malhotra and Nayan wears traditional Tamilnadu saris will have the viewers whistling in anticipation for more!
