Like many celebs who changed names in the industry, Nayathara too is in the list. Her real name is Diana Mariam Kurian. However, now, Nayanthara is her legal name.

Nayanthara was born in a Christian family and raised as a Syrian Christian. However, she converted to Hinduism at an Arya Samaj Temple in Chennai in 2011.

Nayanthara had absolutely no plans to become an actress. She is an English Literature graduate and wanted to pursue Chartered Accountancy.

Acting happened by-chance to Nayanthara when she was working as a part-time model and was spotted by director Sathyan Anthikkad. She gave her nod to just 1 film Manassinakkare.

Fate had other plans for Nayanthara and the movie went on to become such a huge hit financially and worked in Nayan’s favour as offers started pouring in.

Nayanthara was at the receiving end of tonnes of negativity when she started dating actor and choreographer Prabhu Deva, who was already married. Nayathara even had her effigies burnt as protest. They eventually broke it off in 2012. Nayanthara even had Prabhu’s name tattooed on her forearm which she later got changed to ‘Positivity’.

And it is alleged that this was the very reason that Nayanthara turned down an offer for an item number in Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express, as Prabhu was the choreographer.

Before big-screen stardom knocked on her door, Nayanthara was an accomplished TV host. Her first TV show was Chamayam, a fashion and lifestyle show that she hosted before she even changed her name.

Nayanthara is not just an actress who is eye candy. She has done some performance-oriented roles like her role of Sita in the movie Sri Rama Rajyam, for which she won the Nandi and Filmfare Awards for Best Actress awards.

Nayanthara is also considered one of the most desirable women in the south film industry.

One of Nayanthara’s roles that catapulted her to new heights of fame was her portrayal of Goddess Sita in Sri Rama Rajyam. That role earned her the Filmfare Award for Best Telugu Actress and the Nandi Award for Best Actress. Having worked in over 65 films so far, Nayanthara is one bankable and established name in the south film circuits today. Here’s wishing the beauty a very happy birthday!

'Netflix's The Crown Should Be Called A Work Of Fiction', Demands UK Cultural Secretary Oliver Dowden

Netflix’s The Crown has managed to captivate audiences across the world. The new season has been especially gratifying to many as it talked about Princess Diana and her tumultuous marriage with Prince Charles. Quite obviously, the depiction of the royal family in this series did ruffle a few feathers. The latest addition to that is UK Cultural Secretary Oliver Dowden’s demand that the streamer issues a disclaimer at the start about the series being ‘a work of fiction.’ The Crown Season 4 Review: Emma Corrin’s Diana And Gillian Anderson’s Margaret Thatcher Deserve Applause But It’s Josh O’Connor’s Prince Charles That Keeps It Humane (Onhike Exclusive)

Speaking to Daily Mail, Dowden said, “It’s a beautifully produced work of fiction, so as with other TV productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning it is just that.” He believes that it could give a damaging view of the family to the generation who was not present when the events took place.  He feels a whole generation may mistake fiction for facts. Dowden also reveals that he would be writing a letter to Netflix on the same.

Earl Spencer, late Lady Diana’s brother, also voiced similar concerns when he told ITV, “It would help The Crown an enormous amount if at the beginning of each episode it stated that, ‘This isn’t true but is based around some real events’. Because then everyone would understand it’s a drama for drama’s sake.”

All this happened after The Crown season 4 led to a lot of abuse instances. There are reports that Camilla Parker-Bowles, Prince Charles’ second wife, has received a lot of abusive messages and so did some of the other members of the royal family.
