Karthika Nair

Mumbai, June 08, 2017 (Online News India): Actress Karthika Nair who is a known name in the South Film Industry, will be seen donning the role of Queen Devsena as she makes her debut on Indian television with STAR Plus’ magnum opus show, Aarambh. The series is penned by the writer of the "Bahubali" series, K. V Vijayendra Prasad and directed by Goldie Behl.

Karthika Nair who comes from a family of actors, said in one of her interviews that she did not want to try her luck in Bollywood as she did not want to be treated like a debutant as she has already made her place in the South Film Industry.

"I didn't want to start from scratch again. This is why I didn't try films in Bollywood. I get a lot of respect down south and I thought I will feel alienated there (Bollywood). Survival is not my reason to be here. I am here for my passion and creativity," said Karthika Nair.

Karthika says although having Prasad on the big-budget project is an added advantage, it was director-producer Goldie Behl who convinced her to do the TV show.

"Yes, Prasad sir was my south connect. So, I grew more confident that at least someone knows us here. I knew about Goldie sir's work. He is famous for shooting projects on a grand level. You cannot go wrong when you combine grandeur with a good script."

It will be very interesting for us to watch such a powerful character in a male dominated society.
