Nayanthara teams up with Ashwin Saravanan for horror movie 'Connect'
Nayanthara, who was last seen in Annaatthe as Tamil megastar Rajinikanth's love interest, has bagged another interesting project. On her 37th birthday yesterday, makers of Connect released her first look poster. Directed by Ashwin Saravanan, who had earlier helmed the psychological thriller Game Over starring Taapsee Pannu, the film is being bankrolled by her fiance Vignesh Shivan under his banner, Rowdy Pictures.
- Connect will mark the reunion of Nayanthara and Saravanan.
- They had previously worked in Maya, in which the actress had portrayed a mother who is being haunted by a ghost.
- It is considered one of the best horror films in Tamil movie industry, so when these two big names come together, expectations are naturally sky-high.
- Plus, Nayanthara's strong acting skills will get tested, again.
In the first look, we see Nayanthara in a floral dress. She's painting a plus sign on a wall with a white liquid. Her face is expressionless, but her eyes are focused on that sign. The image sure looks intriguing. Apart from Nayanthara, Shivan, and Saravanan, the film's team has Prithvi Chandrasekar helming the music and Anupam Kher, Haniya Nafisa, and Sathyaraj as co-actors.
