image Nayantara has found herself in a spot of bother as the Tamil Film Producers Council and the South India Film Actors Association on Wednesday issued on her a red card meaning she can’t be part of any projects in Tamil unless further announcement from the council.

The decision was arrived at a joint meeting of the two bodies. The action has been taken against the actress following a complaint lodged by Subash Chandra Bose, the producer of Paiyya, a film being directed by Lingusamy. Nayantara was supposed to play the female lead in the film opposite ‘Paruthiveeran’ Karthi.
The very news of Nayantara being booked for the film at a whopping remuneration of Rs one crore created flutter in Kollywood. However, the excitement did not last long as the producers citing global economic meltdown urged her to waive off a part of her salary.

However, it resulted in allegations and counter allegations. Eventually, Nayantara was shown the exit door from the project and she was replaced by Tamannah. Shooting for the movie began recently at Bangalore.
Meanwhile the issue took a turn as the producer formally lodged a complaint with Producers Council alleging that the actress had not returned the advance paid to her.

A statement issued by the Producers Council after the joint meeting said the actress did not pay any heed to the requests that the advance be repaid. Hence, the council had issued a directive to its members not to cast Nayantara in their films with immediate effect.

The council also said it would hold discussions with the producers councils of other languages not to rope in Nayantara for their projects.

It is to be noted that Nayantara is acting in a Malayalam film Bodyguard with Dileep and a Telugu movie opposite NTR Junior.
