South Indian Cinema's Nayanthara: Potential Award Winner for Director Anand Shankar | Photos | Video

Ever since her discovery as "Best New Face of the Year" at the Asianet Film Awards for the movie "Manassinakkare" in 2003, Nayanthara's career  has skyrocketed into one of most bankable stars of the Telugu and Tamil cinemas.

Much awaited in 2016 is a Tamil movie, directed by Anand Shankar, which would include Vikram, another big star of the south Indian movie industry. The Tamil film is yet untitled, however. This writer thinks that the coming movie is a potential blockbuster, which would reap acclamations and praise from film critics and movie fans.

Nayanthara (see below photo), whose real name is Diana Mariam Kurian, was born on November 18, 1984 in Bengaluru. Her role as Sita in Sri Rama Rajyam in 2011 earned her the Filmfare's Best Telugu Actress and the Nandi Award for Best Actress.

Her comeback after an 11-month sabbatical leave from film making in 2011 is truly unstoppable! Director Anand Shankar and Vikram would surely benefit from her acting prowess.

She remains one of the most desirable women of India (see photo). Don’t you agree?

Here's the theatrical trailer video of "Raja Rani", her most successful movie in 2013:

India Cricket Live Scores, Analysis TV presenter: lovely Karishma Kotak | Photos | Video

If any warm-blooded desi male is to be asked: "name two of your most favorite things in life". He would most probably answer: "hot and sexy Bollywood women" and "cricket".

And so today, we are combining these two wonderful things into a single package - with no other than the lovely British Indian model Karishma Kotak (see photo).

Aside from being a Bollywood movie star, she is a TV presenter of "Extraaa Innings", which showcases the scores and post match analysis of the Indian Premier League 2013 - season 6. She is a die-hard fan of cricket and the IPL, which had her travel all around the country to watch the games live.

For sure, aside from searching for the next Sachin Tendulkar, you are glued to the TV not only for live scores but also when this beautiful British Indian model/actress analyzes each cricket game with such glamour, along with equally stunning presenter Rochelle Rao (see photo).

Karishma Kotak was born on May 26, 1982 in London, England. She is most recognized for her hot stills in the 2006 Kingfisher Calender, her participation in the reality TV show "Bigg Boss 6" and her role as presenter as post match analyst of the IPL6. She can also be seen in the following movies: "Shankar Dada Zindabad", "Dhyeyam", "Season's Greetings", "In Ghost House Inn", "Glamour" and "Mr. Joe B. Carvalho".
