Nayanthara is all set to commence shooting on her 75th film. This will be her first project after her marriage to filmmaker Vignesh Shivan. Set to be directed by debutant Nilesh Krishnaa, the movie was announced last week. Apart from Nayan, the film also features Sathyaraj, Jai and Redin Kinsley, among others.

The project was launched with a low-key pooja ceremony attended by the film’s lead cast and crew. Announcing the project, the official Twitter handle of Zee Studios wrote, "Announcing #ladySuperstar75. Zee Studios is excited to collaborate with #Nayanthara for her 75th film! The shoot will begin soon! #Jai #SathyaRaj @Nilesh_Krishnaa @dineshkrishnanb @tridentartsoffl @Naadstudios (sic).”

Nilesh, also the film's writer, said in a statement, “I feel extremely happy, blessed, and grateful for the opportunity. It is also very surreal to acknowledge Nayanthara, the one and only Lady Superstar, who will lead this project as its protagonist.”

“As this is her 75th film, I'm deeply committed to delivering the trust and confidence she has in us. A large volume of what I've learnt about filmmaking comes from director Shanker, my guru, alma mater, and mentor, to whom I pledge this opportunity. My sincere salutations to him, as we gear up to walk the talk and commence shooting, soon,” he added.

Nayanthara was recently seen in Vignesh’s directorial, ‘Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kadhal’, a romantic comedy co-starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Vijay Sethupathi. In the film, Nayanthara plays a character called Kanmani Ganguly, who falls in love with Vijay’s character. Samantha’s character is also in love with Vijay’s character.

Nayanthara was also seen in the Tamil thriller ‘O2’. Currently, she is awaiting the release of the Telugu film ‘Godfather’, co-starring Chiranjeevi.
