The prestigious and popular Tamil magazine ‘Ananda Vikatan’ carried a Valentine day special interview with hero Vishal who made a startling confession that he is “madly in love with a top actress who is homely, sweet and reminds me of my first love during campus days”. This has stirred a curiosity in the Kollywood tinsel world.
The news hungry media, going by Vishal’s poetic description of his current flame, jumped the gun and said it was Priyamani, who had done Malakottai with him. Priya who is rumoured to be in love with a young Telugu actor denied that she is Vishal’s love! Once her denial was flashed by the evening papers, the media then shifted its stance and said it was Nayanthara, who was Vishal’s 'mysterious obsession'.
sify.com caught up with Nayanthara, at her home in Thiruvalla in Kerala where she is taking a break away from her busy schedule. Said Nayanthara: “I’m not in love. I want to clear these speculative reports in the media about my link up with Vishal. We are currently working together in Sathyam, his home production. He has all the right and freedom to say whatever he wants to. Please note that he has not mentioned my name, it could be any other actresses? Why me? But the media has made its own inferences and dragged my name into it.”
Nayan continues: “ Vishal is a nice guy. I do not want to say the clichÃ©d line that he is my good friend. Let me make it clear that Vishal is a good co-star and we share a great rapport on sets. All I want to tell the media is- Please do not make mountains out of molehills and blow such things out of proportion.” Nayanthara who is riding a wave after the success of Billa is one of the most sought after actresses in south. She is working round the clock and understands that reaching the top is comparatively easy, but staying there is very difficult. Concludes Nayan with a smile: “I am only focusing on my career and work which is my first and top most priority”.
