Yash is busy preparing for his upcoming movie Toxic: A Fairy Tale For Grown-Ups. The actor, who announced the film last year, kicked off the shooting in March 2024. Yash was supposed to share the screen space with Kareena Kapoor in the movie, marking her debut in Kannada cinema. However, seems like that will not be happening anymore as the actress has decided to walk out of the film. In recent developments, Nayanthara is reportedly in talks to be a part of the movie and will be replacing Kareena as Yash’s sister in Toxic. 

Nayanthara comes on board Toxic?

As per Pinkvilla, director Geethu Mohandas and Yash have met with Nayanthara on several occasions over the past few weeks and the discussions are moving in the right path. The source told the portal, “Nayanthara has shown her interest in doing Toxic and the logistics are being figured out at this point in time. It’s a well-sketched character of a sister and suits her image of a strong woman. Nayanthara is impressed that Geethu Mohandas has written such a strong character for a female and she is connecting well with her vision.”


“The talks are on, and the team is working collectively to get the logistics in place. If everything goes well, the makers will have Nayanthara on board in a fortnight,” added the insider.
