The trailer of actor Nayanthara’s 63rd movie, Airaa, was released on Saturday. Written and directed by KM Sarjun, Nayanthara will be seen in a double role for the first time in her career in this film.
Nayanthara, over the years has become highly selective about her roles and will play two characters named Bhavani and Yamuna respectively in the film. Based on the trailer, the film seems to have two story arcs and brings the issue of gender discrimination on the forefront.
The horror film also stars Sudarsan Srinivasan, Sundaramurthy KS, Priyanka Ravindran, Karthik Jogesh, Siva Sankar and Yogi Babu among others.
Airaa is being produced by Kotapadi J Rajesh and was previously scheduled to release last Christmas.
