As filmmaker Mani Ratnam is already going busy working on his current project Ponniyin Selvan, another historical movie is about to rock the audience in the time to come. As per the latest Bollywood news, ace director Susi Gensan looks all set to come up with a historical film based on the life of Velu Nachiyar.
As per the updates, it’s reported that actress Nayanthara will play the character of Velu Nachiyar. With the new responsibility, the actress looks excited to play the above role.
In the past few years, historical movies have really played well at the box office. This is the reason why you may come across some more historical movies in the time to come.
Talking about Velu Nachiyar, she was the queen of Sivaganga estate from 1780 to 1790. She was quite brave at heart and was even famous as Veeramangai among Tamils.
The reason why she played a crucial role in Indian history because she became the first Indian queen to wage a war from the East India Company in the country.
Nayanthara is a leading actress who was last featured in a Telugu language historical drama titled Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. But the film couldn’t perform well at the box office and the overall reaction of this film was not impressive in the eyes of the audience.
The actress was lucky in her last film titled Mookuthi Amman that smashed all her previous records as proved successful at the box office. Now, getting the taste of success, Nayanthara is currently handling some projects in Malayalam and Tamil languages like Kaathuvaakula, Netrikkann and Annaatthe.
On the other hand, the director Susi Ganesan last performed in Thiruttupayalae 2 which is a sequel to Thiruttupayalae. With directors gearing up with more biopics than ever, it looks like more such films are going to be delivered by the makers very soon.
