Nayantara—from a starlet in Ayya to an
actor to reckon with—the rise has been
meteoric. That’s all because of Chandramukhi.
From a couple of lakhs it now forty to fifty
lakhs per film that she commands. The marginal
success of Kalvanin Kadhali seems not to have
affected her much. Her strong hold continues
in Telugu and Tamil, her call sheets flow over.
She is in great demand too, back in her homeland
Kerala but then, she doesn’t take those
offers. Money is not big. However, it is in
Kerala that she invests all her earnings, buying
up tea estates, farm houses and coconut groves.
She feels that all her good luck is because
she has six fingers. You know that her grandma
also has six fingers? Her uncle and even some
more close relatives too have six fingers!!
