After winning accolades and all the major awards last year for her outstanding performance in Sri Ramarajyam, Nayanthara received the prestigious Nandi Awards on Thursday evening (April 11) a glittery function held at Lalita Kala Toranam in Hyderabad.
Nayanthara looked incredibly dignified and stunning in a blue chiffon saree designed by Nishka Lulla and was the cynosure of all eyes. She received the golden statue and a certificate for Best Actress and a bronze Nandi along with Sri Ramarajyam team which bagged the Best Film.
A visibly excited Nayan spoke to sify.com: “ I am super happy to receive my first Nandi award and that too for Sri Ramarajyam and the icing on the cake was to get it from Amitabh ji who I admire and respect a lot.”
Labelled as the glam queen of south Indian cinema, it is indeed a major high for Nayan to be a part of a mythology like Sri Ramarajyam. She deserves a big thumbs up for having taken chances, and experiment with different genres instead of being safe and predictable.
