Aparna Nair’s brush with films came much earlier than her formal debut into Malayalam films with “Nivedyam”in 2007. She had in fact acted in two very short cameo roles in the previous two years, one in the film “Mayookham” as the friend of one of the lead actresses, while in “
Notebook” she had appeared in one scene as a TV journalist. Prior to her regular entry into cinema she was more engrossed into modeling and that was her priority, but as luck would have it for her, she got noticed by eminent film personality Lohithadas, who cast her in that first film of her, but neither her role was significant, nor did the film do well in the box office. Hence Aparna had to wait for some more time to gain prominence, which she did not through any role in a movie, but by her acting in a lead role in the play ”Chayamukhi”. Here she crossed swords with veterans Mohanlal and Mukesh, and came up with a brilliant performance bringing her instant fame, and making it easier for her to move ahead in her film career. She started getting roles regularly after this. Some of them were quite meaty ones, like the one opposite Manikuttan in the 2009 film “Meghatheertham”. The list of her films kept on increasing, with films like “Kayam” and “
Cocktail”, both offering her important roles, but while someone else stole the limelight in the former, it was only in the latter she was noticed for her role, and the film also was a very successful thriller. Simultaneously, she tried out her hand in Tamil and Telegu films, while drawing attention to her acting in “Beautiful” and “Streetlight”, both of which gave her satisfaction for her own performances. On the other hand, out an out entertainers like “Mallu Singh” and “
Thattathin Marayathu” were great hits at the box office. As she awaits the release of her recently completed films “
Madhura Naranga” (where she acts as a doctor) ; “Thamara” (in the title role of a fisher woman) and “Vannyam”, a thriller, she exudes quiet confidence about them and her future career in general.
