One more child artiste has turned into heroine. Navika Kotia is the latest to join the growing list of child artistes-turned-heroines. Navika, who shot to fame in Telugu with Pawan Kalyan’s blockbuster Attarintiki Daaredi where she was seen playing the role of younger sister to Samantha, is now making her showbiz debut with a Tamil film. Navika is pairing up with actor Sharawnan in a youthful love story.
Navika was also seen as Sridevi’s bubbly younger daughter Sapna in English Vinglish. Given that she already has Telugu connection with Pawan’s film, Navika is keen to make her full-time debut in Telugu soon. Before her stint on silver screen, Navika has done handful of TV serials including Balika Vadhu. Navika is now aged at 16 years.
Child actors turning into heroines is not new. This has been there for a while. From the likes of Sridevi, Meena, Raasi, Rohini, up to recent heroines Baby Shamili, Hansika, there are many who achieved this feat. Navika is the new entrant and the list goes on and on.
