Nayanthara, the glam girl who scorched the screen with her bikini appearance in Billa is all set to do an art flick.

Sources close to her say that she is impressed by a script narrated by noted Malayalam director Shyama Prasad.

Remember that Shyama Prasad is an award winning director who has done a handful of films like Agnisakshi, Ore Kadal and many others.

This film titled Electra is an adaptation of a Greek play which will be produced by Vindyan.

Talks are on with Arya, who will play the hero but nothing has been confirmed. When contacted, Nayanthara says: " It is too early to make a comment and I will let you know after I sign on the dotted line".

But sources close to producer Vindyan who has done a Malayalam film with Nayanthara and Mammootty early in her career say that the actress will be doing the film without taking any money.

She plays the central character Alexandra and it is a heroine oriented film, which will start rolling from November after she completes her Telugu assignments.
