Meet Nayantara, an Indian actress who is hugely popular in the South Indian movie industry. You might remember this hottie in the movies like Chandramukhi and Ghajini. See photos, video and a biography of Nayantara here.


Nayantara is in the news for her relationship with super star Prabhu Deva. The man, dubbed Indian Michael Jackson for his unique dance moves, has been bonding with the beauty very nicely over the shooting schedules for Tamil movie Villu.

“To sprinkle some spice in the story, rumour mongers hail that the ace dancer and choreographer graced the Malayalam movie Bodyguard with his gracious presence only for Nayantara. He took time out of his busy schedule in Tamil for a Malayalam movie upon the request of his sweetheart.”

As a biography, Nayantra, whose real name is Diana Mariam Kurien, was born on November 18, 1984 in Kerala, India so her age is 24. She did her schooling from various schools across south India, as her father was an Air Force officer and sprung into the entertainment industry after winning the Best model competition in 2003.

Nayantra was spotted by a director, while she was still studying in college and then she did her first movie Mansinakkare opposite Jayaram. Her filmography includes Vismayathumbathu, Chandramukhi, Ayya, Lakshmi, Kalvanin Kadhali, Thalaimagan, Sivaji: The Boss and then the famous Billa in 2007. Her bikini shots in that movie are still fresh in our memories.

Nayantra was nominated for the Filmfare Best Tamil Actress Award for her performance in Billa.

In her personal life, Nayantra has been linked to co-star Silambarasan, a relationship that became a scandal after the couple’s kissing pictures were released.
