After Kerala, the actress considers Karnataka as her second home as she is popular among Kannada cine-goers. She has worked with Sandalwood stars like Sudeep, Upendra, Shivaraj Kumar, Ganesh and many others.
Coming to her latest movies, she is working in Kannada movie Tagaru in which she has teamed up with Shivaraj Kumar.
Who is Naveen?
Naveen, who is from Bengaluru, started his career in the film industry as an actor after quitting a high-paying IT job and made his acting debut in PC Shekar-directorial Kadhalae En Kadhale and later worked with him in Nayaka. The movies failed to give him a break. However, he continued his association with the director in Romeo, but this time as a co-producer.
It was on the sets of Romeo that he met Bhavana for the first time and their friendship soon blossomed into love. "He is a soft-spoken boy and not into full-time film business. Naveen owns a security services firm and has not independently produced any film," a source close to the actor had earlier told the International Business Times India. The source adds that his full name is Naveen Nagarajan.
