Sometimes a selection happens this way too. In case of ambiguity, the best way is to go for a lottery and pick one. Coming to our case, this doesn’t happen to opt for one heroine among the bunch of sexy starlets. This took place to pick Nayantara for Nayantara.

Our hot Mallu damsel’s original name is Diana Mariam Kurian and everyone knows that already. While working as a part-time model in Trivandrum, she got spotted by director Sathyan Anthikkad. After going through 100s of portfolios, Sathyan found the future super starlet of the south and decided to cast her as a lead in ‘Manassikkare’. Expressing his unhappiness over her lengthy name, the director advised a name change and provided Diana with 30 options. Unable to pick any, they have decided to select one among them through a lottery, and that’s how ‘Nayantara’ surfaced.

‘Director Sathyan is very fond of the name Nayantara and even in the lottery the same name has come out. I’m happy for this new name that won me accolades. That’s the story behind by name anyway’, signs off Nayantara. Nice to hear!
