On the work front, Nayanthara was last seen in O2. She is awaiting the release of two films, Gold in Malayalam and Connect in Tamil, which she continues to shoot for other films. Now, there are two major updates about Alphonse Puthren’s Gold and Ashwin Saravanan’s Connect. The former, Gold, stars Nayanthara and Prithviraj in lead roles. This comedy-thriller film is slated for release on December 2nd. Initially, it was supposed to hit theatres for Onam 2022. However, the release got pushed due to multiple reasons. Gold’s director Alphonse Puthren is known for Premam starring Nivin Pauly. This movie supposedly stars 60 other actors from Mollywood and Kollywood, apart from Prithviraj and Nayanthara who will be playing the roles of Danger Joshy and Sumangali Unnikrishnan, respectively.
Ashwin Saravanan’s Connect stars Anupam Kher along with Nayanthara in lead roles. The film is touted to be a horror thriller. The makers have now revealed that the teaser of the film is to release on 18th November. Ashwin Saravanan is known for his film Maya which also starred Nayanthara in the lead role.
The latest report suggests that Nayanthara may be joining hands with Madhavan and Siddarth for Producer Sasikanth’s Directorial Debut. Bankrolled under the banner of Y Not Studios, the movie is most likely to be based on cricket and is expected to begin by January 2023. However, we still await official confirmation. While actors Siddarth and Madhavan have already acted together in Mani Ratnam’s Aayudha Ezhuthu, the trio will be sharing screenspace together for the first time.
Another buzz is that Nayanthara may reunite with Nivin Pauly for his upcoming film. Nivin Pauly earlier announced a film called ‘Dear Students’ written and directed by debutante directors Sandeep Kumar and George Phillip Roy. The film is also bankrolled by Nivin Pauly under his banner Pauly Jr Pictures. If speculations are to be believed, the makers are in talks with Nayanthara to play the female lead in the film. It is noteworthy that Nivin and Nayanthara previously worked together on Dhyan Sreenivasan’s Love Action Drama.
