Did You Know?
I had never thought of becoming an actress. Of course I took part in the school youth festivals and was even the overall champion. But coming to films was accidental. My photograph appeared on the cover page of a leading weekly and that was noticed by director Sibi Malayil and his associates. That's how 'Ishtam' happened.
She was given the name "Navya" by her mother so as to be a lucky fortune to the Malayalam film industry.
