Nithya Menen is a woman of many faces: Malayali born in Bangalore, Journalism graduate turned actress, an actress with a tryst in playback singing. The actress who did Hanuman as a child artist in 1998, has acted in almost 50 plus films across Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi and Kannada. While she was always loved in South Cinema, her claim to fame in Kollywood came from her performance in OK Kanmani. Recently, she won the hearts of the Tamil audience with her flawless performance in Mithran Jawahar’s Thiruchitrambalam. As Dhanush’s friend Shobana, she made all guys yearn for a girl best friend like her. 

We all know that the crux of OK Kanmani was based on Live-in relationships. Speaking about her opinion on the same in an exclusive interview with JFW, she said, “I don’t need to necessarily have an opinion about it because if it happens it happens. I can’t just say what I feel and hope to change the world now. I don’t give that much importance to what say I have in other people’s lives and I think people should just have the freedom to be who they are so there is no me saying, do the right thing or not.” 

Further, talking about her experience working in the film, she said, “I had worked with Dulquer before so that part was already taken care of. Working with Mani sir and PC Sreeram sir, I knew the film was going to be big. I also knew my role would be nice, far away from clichés and perfect in every way. I am glad for my character because Tara was something that I could totally relate to. I like a movie where I don’t feel like I am acting in it but naturally just being myself. I love being subtle and being myself when in character and that film brought the best out of me that way.”

On the work front, the actor is currently awaiting the release of Anjali Menon’s Wonder Women directed by Nithya Menen.
