Nayantara seen with bikini in Billa have reported in a national news paper that “I still get compliments for my bikini shot in the movie Billa. It has been a while since its release, but my look in the film has received wide appreciation. I was given option ether to wear a one-piece swimsuit if I was not okay with appearing in a bikini.
But I was aware that I had the right attitude, so when I wore it for the shot, I was really comfortable in it. Rumors were there that I was paid a bomb for wearing the bikini, but there’s no truth in it. I will not wear a two-piece for a film again! I’ve done it once and I am very happy the audience accepted me. So if I did it again, I don’t think it will remain special. also believe in doing things just once and I don’t believe in repeating my act,”
