Narayan Lucky is an Indian actor working in Kollywood. He began his career by portraying the lead role in a Tamil Film InidhuInidhu in 2010. He mostly plays supporting roles and not mainstream roles. His hometown and birthplace both are Chennai. Narayan's first film Inidhu Inidhu in 2010 was his first entry into Kollywood, and it was not what everyone would want a debut to be. The film was a box office failure, though it was a remake of the famous, successful and award winning film Happy Days in Telugu in 2007, produced by P. Raj where Narayan Lucky had played a parallel lead role named Arvind (Tyson).
Besides Narayan Lucky, the film also stared other actors like A. Arun, V.S. Kumar, R. Menon, S. Deepti and A. Zaveri. Narayan got fame and recognition as a supporting actor in the film Oru Kal Oru Kannadi in 2012. He has a pretty promising career ahead and has 6 Candles and CSK, two Telugu films, in line for release. The delayed project of Bhooloham got released in 2015. He is yet to debut in Malayalam through his movie ‘Bad Boys‘. Among the notable roles that he played after his debut film, was of a drug addict in the picture Payanam and opposite Trisha in Samar. But it was the role of Hansika Motwani's friend in the picture earlier mentioned above as Oru Kal Oru Kannadi which gave him fame and recognition quickly.
Though the role was actually for Jiiva, he made it a success. Narayan did not aim to be an actor earlier in his life. Narayan completed his MBA and joined as the head of marketing in INOX, Chennai. Narayan’s elder brother got selected for a role opposite R Madhavan in M. Ratnam's romantic-drama, Alaipayuthey in the year 2000. Seeing his brother as an actor prompted him and drew his attention to pursue acting opportunities. Later he joined as the head of marketing for INOX Chennai, and his interactions with the film industry people got him some attention, and finally, he was shortlisted to play the lead role in
Prakash Raj production InidhuInidhu in 2010. He quit his work to fully commit himself to films, to have a full-time career in cinema.
Though his first cinema was not a hit, the role of Aravind, that he portrayed in the picture, was received very well by the critics. Later on, after this failure, he did not stop doing films but he stopped taking mainstream roles and focused mainly on supporting ones, and he got some recognition there as well. Some of the characters and films mentioned above had given him quite a fame after a failed debut. He started taking selective roles, and more challenging roles and success followed him.
