Southern actress Nazriya Nazim considers upcoming Tamil romantic-drama Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah as very special because it was the first film that she signed in Tamil before making her debut in the industry with Neram.
"I was in class eleven when I was signed for this film. It's a very special project because my director believed in me even before roping me in. I don't think any director would take the bold step of casting a newcomer in a big film," Nazriya said.
The 19-year old had earlier this year, accused director A. Sarkunam of using a body double to shoot intimate scenes for the Tamil romantic-comedy "Naiyaandi" starring her. But she doesn't want to talk about it now.
"That incident is over. I don't understand why people still ask me about it when I have moved on and I'm happy with how my career is shaping," she said and added, "I'm eagerly waiting for the release of this film (Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah), which celebrates the spirit of Indian weddings".
Nazriya, who started her career as a child artist in Malayalam movies, is paired with Jai in the Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah, which is being directed by Anees.
