With Laxmi turning out to be a roaring hit, beautiful Nayantara has become one of the busiest actresses in Telugu filmdom. But she still has no qualms about working with newcomers.

"If I get a good role with a newcomer, I would definitely consider it. Though I have worked with big stars, I have been treated respectfully," she said in an interview.

She is doing a film with top star Nagarjuna and another with hotshot Prabhas.

She is also excited about working with Venkatesh in Suresh Productions' next film. They were seen together in the hit flick Laxmi.

"I am eagerly looking forward to working with Venkatesh again. He is very professional and down to earth."

Some more hits and the dusky actress may give the Trishas and Charmys a run for their money in Telugu cinema.

Excerpts:

Are you playing a routine lover girl in Nagarjuna's next film?
Not at all! It is a multi-dimensional role showcasing the varied moods of a person. It is a lively role with scope for performance since I need to exhibit contrasting emotions. It was great working with Nagarjuna since he is a wonderful co-star.

What about your role in the remake of Kannada hit Jogi opposite Prabhas?
I am glad to get this challenging role and excited about working with Prabhas and director Vinayak after Laxmi. After the success of Gajini and Laxmi" in Telugu, I have been offered plum roles. I am just cherishing this glowing phase. Rarely do upcoming actors get such good roles, so I am lucky.

After Laxmi, you have been signed opposite Venkatesh yet again?
I have been signed by the Suresh Productions for their next film and I am eagerly looking forward to working with Venkatesh again. He is very professional and down to earth.

Do you intend to work only with top stars?
Not at all! I was in for a surprise when I was offered Chandramukhi with none other than Rajnikanth and things kept flowing. Even in Telugu, I am getting offers opposite stars without any planning from my side.

If I get a good role with a newcomer, I would definitely consider it. Though I have worked with big stars, I have been treated respectfully.

What is happening in Tamil films?
After hits like Ayya, Chandramukhi and Gajini, I have also done films with J Suryah and Chimboo. Now I have films with Sarath Kumar and Chimboo again. So, it is going pretty well. I should be lucky to get such good initial breaks in Tamil as well as Telugu.
