In the year 1984 when  Director Fazil was planning about his film 'Nokketha Doorathu Kannum Nattu'
he thought of introducing a new face as the heroine character 'Girlie' who should had to be very smart,
energetic and capable of performing  some funny sequences also.His search ended at Mumbai from where he
selected a Keralite girl itself who was born and brought up there. She is Nadia Moidu and also
known as Zareena and Nadhia.She acted the lead role of film 'Nokketha Doorathu Kannum Nattu' which was
written and directed by Fazil in a lovely manner.The story was unusual  and in that picture actress Padmini
had a very important role as grandmother of Girlie.Padmini acting in a Malayalam film after a long gap was very much appreciated by the audience as well as the attractive and talented new heroine was also well accepted.
Nadia's hairstyle, style and movements were quite appealing and she excelled nicely as the character 'Girlie'.The
next year that film was remade in Tamil in the name 'Poove Poo Chooda Vaa' which was directed by Fazil again.In the Tamil version also Nadia Moidu presented the same role as 'Girlie' and Padmini the same role as grandmother of Girlie.Other characters were presented by Tamil actors.The Tamil film was also a big success

and Nadia could establish as a new heroine in Tamil also.

Oduvil Unni Krishnan,K.P.A.C. Lalitha etc handled important roles and was a super hit film.
Nadia got married and was staying in U.S.A. for a long period.They have returned from there and settled in Mumbai  and again  she entered acting
in Malayalam and Tamil films occasionally.
The Tamil film 'M.Kumaran S/O. Mahalakshmi  was a blockbuster film which was remake of Telugu film
