Last updated on: May 26, 2016 14:31 IST

The latest updates from Tamil film industry.

Nayanthara

If rumors are to be believed then Nayanthara will soon don the producer’s hat. 

2015 turned out to be a terrific year for the talented actress with three back-to-back hits -- Thani Oruvan, Maya and Naanum Rowdy Dhaan.

While she is currently busy with several Tamil and Telugu projects, Nayanthara is planning to bankroll a Tamil woman-centric project that will see her in a powerful role.

Reports hint that Nayanthara will play a collector in the film, which will be directed by Jagan, a former assistant to director A R Murugadoss.

Other details about the film, which is expected to go on floors in a couple of months, are still under wraps.
