They say that box-office is the biggest gauge of an actor/actress’ popularity with the masses, and by that yardstick, Nayanthara isn’t just one-of-the-biggest actresses of the current generation, but she also easily stacks up with the all-time greats of Indian cinema. What’s sets her apart from most other box-office queens both in the South as well as the Hindi film industry is her ability to not only contribute to the remuneration of big-budget, hero-centric massy films by the massive fan-following she commands, but also run female-centric, niche films (with controlled budgets) on the sheer weight of her talent and stardom alone.
Nayanthara has come a long way from being a sex symbol in films headlined by big heroes to someone who draws a considerable amount of fans to theaters on her name alone, be it big films where she shares screen space with male superstars, or small films, where she is the biggest selling point. In fact, since the past few years, she’s probably the only actress in the whole country who runs movies on her name alone, justifiably earning herself the moniker of ‘Lady Superstar’.
On that note, it gives us immense pleasure to take a look at Lady Superstar Nayanthara’s biggest box-office hits:
|Film||Year||Wolrdwide Gross (INR)||Verdict|
|Veeram||2014||156 crore||All-Time Blockbuster|
|Yennai Arindhaal||2015||110 crore||Blockbuster|
With the terrific buzz for Nayanthara's upcoming films, we expect this list to burgeon considerably in the coming months.
