One the most heated debates that’s making rounds in the internet is on Nepotism and discrimination against south actors in Bollywood. Recently Nithya voiced out her opinion on the same while talking to an online portal. The actress said, ‘Some of the top most actresses in Bollywood have all been south Indian starting from Padmini, Vyjayanthimala, Waheeda Rehman, Sridevi. I’m coming in order of time to Aishwarya Rai and Deepika Padukone, they have all been south Indian. I think these debates are happening for the sake of debates and either ways there is no need you have to do only in Bollywood, we have beautiful mediums here in south, there are several languages. I work in 4 different languages, there is no dearth of films. I want to do good films, it’s not about Bollywood or wherever. If you are saying that south Indian industries are not good enough, that’s not true. Even the smallest industries infact make the best films, whether it’s Bengali, Marathi or Malayalam. I would love to work in Bengali films or Marathi films. I’m excited to learn a new language. I want to learn Bengali so much, I love Marathi. You have to do your best and prove yourself, nobody can deny you anything.’
Nithya Menen made her debut in Bollywood with Mission Mangal. Where she starred along with Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari.
