Looks like Nayan has decided to act in another project after what was supposed to be her last - the Telugu movie Ramarajyam. She played the role of Seetha in Ramarajyam and won accolades for her performance. As it seems, after watching her play Seetha for the movie, Ram Gopal Varma is mighty impressed with her performance and offered her a role in his upcoming movie inspired by Ramayana.
Although Nayan and Prabhu Deva refused initially, RGV's persevered until they relented. As a result, Nayan will play the role of Mandodari - Ravana's wife - in the movie. Ravana's character is played by Nagarjuna.
