This 32 year old talented actor didn’t take too long to become an established hero in Tollywood. Nani is only about 17 films old but already a reliable option for a lot of film makers to get minimum guarantee hits. There were many instants where his acting skills saved the films irrespective of the week story line and production values. Lately we realized Naveen Babu Ghanta aka Nani has some secret obsession over Malayalam actresses. No offence but most of the Malayalam girls don’t ever come with the stereotyped heroine figures but they sure are bombs when it comes to talent. Matching their acting skills is the toughest task for many actors. But this Assistant Director turned actor must be enjoying this challenge. Let’s have a look the impressive list of Mallu girls he worked with.
Saranya Mohan: Bhimili Kabaddi Jattu was his fourth film directed by Tatineni Satya. But Saranya was an established child artist turned heroine in Malayalam and Tamil industries. This 27-year old Bharatanatyam dancer is from Alappuzha, Kerala. She was seen doing supporting roles and sister roles in many films in Telugu.
Nithya Menen: Nani shared screen with this award winning actress two times back to back. Ala Modalaindi marked debut for Nithya in Telugu. Then they did Veppam in Tamil immediately. Though her family is settled in Bangalore, the Ishq actress is from a Malayali Family.
Amala Paul: Janda Pai Kapiraju. This Samuthirakani directorial wasn’t an expected hit at Box Office but succeeded to unveil the hidden side of Nani’s acting on big screen. Amala Paul who played Indumati in this film is a Kochi girl! She was seen in many films in Telugu including Iddarammayilatho, Nayak and Love failure.
Malavika Nair: She was hardly done with her schooling by the time she did Yevade Subrahmanyam with Nani as female lead. Do we need more proofs for their Born-For-Art syndrome? She did Nandini’s critically acclaimed Kalyana Vaibhogame after Nani’s film.
Nivetha Thomas: The new heartthrob of Telugu Film buffs. She is a proved child artist and actress in Tamil and Malayalam but came as an unexpected storm to Tollywood. We didn’t see that coming. Probably that was one of very few times we see a heroine match Nani’s acting skills. By the way, this born Malayali and brought up in Chennai-girl said she is Nani’s fan.
Anu Emmanuel: This pretty NRI is a Malayali too. Her father Thankachan Emmanuel is a film producer in Malluwood. She is sharing screen with Nani in his upcoming Virinchi Varma directorial. Buzz is that the film is titled as Majnu. She is doing another film with Gopi Chand as well.
Keerthy Suresh: The girl who stole all the hearts in Ram’s Nenu Sailaja. She is born in Chennai but her father is a Malayali. This fashion designer turned actress up for a long list films in South India.
Uff! That is a long list, isn’t it? Nani, admit is! You are obsessed with Malayali Actresses, aren’t you? But as long as we get to watch the amazing chemistry on screen and spellbound performances, we are ok with it. We love these amazingly talented girls too!
