Promising Malayalee actress Ayilya aka Ananya, who shot to fame with Samuthirakani’s Naadodigal (Tamil), celebrated her birthday on the sets of her forthcoming Tamil film Seedan in Madurai on March 26. She cut a huge vanilla cake in the presence of crew members including Dhanush (who is playing a cameo) and director Subramaniyam Shiva.
Though Seedan is a remake of the Malayalam blockbuster Nandanam, starring Prithviraj and Navya Nair, the director is expected to make script changes to suit Tamil audience tastes. It is said that Ananya’s role in the original was actually a guest role, but the director has made some changes in the script to ensure that Ananya appears throughout the movie.
Notably, Ananya recently made her debut in Telugu with fat guy Krishnudu’s Amayakudu, directed by Bharathi Ganesh. She is now making a comeback in Malayalam with Oridathoru Postman directed by Shaji Azeez with Suresh Gopi as a postman. Ananya has also signed a Malayalam film to be directed by Padmakumar in which she will play Mohanlal’s daughter.
