Actor Nayanthara’s team on Wednesday refuted reports of her playing the lead role in a biopic based on the life of Rani Velu Nachiyar.
“Certain news stating that MsNayanthara is a part of period film based on the life of Queen Velu Nachiyar has been circulating in some sections of the media. Ms Nayanthara categorically denies such a movie and we voice her opinion on the same to the media. This is a baseless rumour and on behalf of our client we request the media to verify the facts before publishing. Verification is just a call or message or mail away,” read the statement.

The rebuttal comes days after reports suggested that Nayanthara will play Rani Velu Nachiyar in a historical drama, which will be directed by Susi Ganeshan.
Nayanthara has multiple films in her kitty. She was shooting for Superstar Rajinikanth’s Annaatthe in Hyderabad before the shoot was halted due to the coronavirus outbreak on the set. The actor also has boyfriend Vignesh Shivan’s Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal and Malayalam film Paattu in the pipeline.
