Tamil film body bans actress NayantharaFebruary 5th, 2009 - 5:51 pm ICT by IANS
Chennai, Feb 5 (IANS) Tamil actress Nayanthara has been banned by a state film body for allegedly not fulfilling her commitment to complete the shooting of ‘Paiyya’ being produced by N. Subhash Chandra Bose. Nayanthara denies this is the reason behind the ban.The decision was taken after Tamil Film Producers’ Council (TFPC) members met the South Indian Artistes Association Wednesday.
“Nayanthara had lost interest in films after being jilted by boyfriends repeatedly. Efforts are underway to get her banned in Malayalam and Telugu films as well,” a TFPC source said Thursday.
A ban on Nayanthara will affect three more Tamil movies - “Raja Vesham,” “Satyam” and “Yaaradi Nee Mohini”, which are currently under production. The investment made in the three films is said to be over Rs.300 million, according to industry sources.
Sources close to Nayanthara denied the charges.
“A section of south Indian film producers are ganging up against Nayanthara for reasons not connected to ‘Paiyya’, a film to be directed by Lingusamy whose dates were not utilised by producer Bose. Since her time was wasted for nothing, the actress refused to return the money,” said one source.
“Unable to utilise the time for other projects, Nayanthara was in Dubai for several months with sibling Lenu Kodiyattu. The accusations of acting in bad faith are false and other things about her are motivated, baseless gossip,” the source added.
Nayanthara was dating Tamil actor Silambarasan but they have broken up.
“Yes, we have decided to go our own ways. I will not be doing another film with Simbu in future,” referring to Silambarasan, Nayanthara has been quoted as saying.
