Nayantara was born as Diana Mariam Kurien on 18th November 1984 in Thiruvalla, Kerala, India. Her father worked in the Air Force, so the family moved frequently. She did her twelfth grade at Balikamadom High School in Thiruvalla and graduated in English Literature from Marthoma College, Thiruvalla.

Winning the first runner up spot in the Best Model of Kerala contest in 2002 was a turning point for Nayantara. This helped her get offers to do commercials.

Nayantara was involved with her co-star from Vallavan, Silambarasan though they broke off later.
