One of Tamil cinema’s most accomplished directors Gautham Vasudev Menon is all set to make a film on the life and career of ‘lady superstar’ Nayanthara.
The film ,commissioned by Netflix, will trace Nayanthara’s rise from choreographer’s assistant to the highest-paid actress of Tamil cinema.
There were some reports that Gautham Menon was commissioned to shoot Nayanthara’s wedding which were not true.
“Netflix has actually signed Gautham Menon to make a film on Nayanthara’s rise to superstardom. Menon is a close friend of both Nayanthara and her husband Vignesh Shivan. He knows them from before they were dating, ” a source in the know informs.
This is the first documentary on a contemporary female actress in a series that Netflix has planned where directors will be asked to make documentaries on popular star-actors whom they know well.
