Malayalam actress Nithya Menen has a good reputation in the film industry in the past nine years from her debut. She is the instinctive actor who can add layers to even a two-line character. Take the recent eponymous cameo in the 2018 Telugu hit Geetha Govindam, for instance. Or Bangalore Days, Anjali Menon’s 2014 romantic drama, where her character Natasha’s presence is felt right through the narrative. As for full-length roles, it cannot get more challenging than last month’s Praana, the multilingual psychological thriller that saw her in a solo act.
The film shot simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada, saw her enacting each scene in all four languages! Next up are two Malayalam films – Kolambi and a sports film with Kunchacko Boban. There is also a project with Mysskin and what everyone is waiting for, the Jayalalithaa biopic. She’s an actress who plays by her own rules.
Going against the tide where actresses play safe, Nithya Menen has always done what she felt right and luckily for her, it worked wonders. And now, she’s entering a new zone as she makes her digital debut with a web series. The actress will be seen in the Amazon Prime original Breathe season 2, which has Abhishek Bachchan in a key role. The first season saw Madhavan as the protagonist.
