Malayalam actress Nithya Menon started her career in films as a child artist and wanted to go for journalism. She had pursued a course in journalism too. However as all of us can see, she has turned an actress today and has acted in Tamil films like 180 and Veppam so far.
She also had a dream of becoming a director. She had applied for a course at the film institute,Pune. During this process she met the Telugu director Nandini Reddy who advised her not to become a director, instead become an actress. This is how this actress landed acting in Kannada film first. Though she is basically a Malayali she is acting in all other south Indian languages like Tamil, Telugu, Kannada except Malayalam.
Some fans are of the opinion that she looks more like Soundarya while some feel she looks like Genelia. She turns deaf ear to all such comments as this actress is brimming with confidence and does not want to be compared to any other actress. She likes to create an image and expression for herself.
There are several curious fans who are asking why she has refused to pair with actor Venkatesh in the forthcoming Telugu film. The actress feels that there is a vast age difference between Venkatesh and hers and it will not be appealing on the screen. She also feels that the audience will be disappointed to see her pair with this man. After the movie 180, she was supposed to act with Siddharth in O my friend which is a Telugu film. The latest news is that she has been removed from that and Shruti hasan has been replaced for the same role. She says that it was Shruthi Haasan who was very keen to pair with Siddarth. This is one strong reason why she was shown the exit path.
Before nithya menon was offered this role, Amrita Rao was selected to play the Siddharth’s romantic interest in this movie. It is believed that she walked out of the project as the producer of the film Dil Raju did not offer her good treatment and was firm on introducing various cost control measures that hit her hard.
What ever said and done nothing is going well for Siddharth and Nithya Menon past few days. Dil Raju has replaced Nithya Menon with the sex siren Shruti Hassan. Some also feel that the lover boy may be playing this replacement game!
