Nithya Menen, who was last seen in Amazon Prime Video’s critically acclaimed show Modern Love Hyderabad, is back in action in Telugu with another web series for the same streamer again. Her next is titled Kumari Srimathi, a show produced by leading Telugu production house Vyjayanthi Movies, marking the directorial debut of Katha Sangama fame cinematographer Gomtesh Upadhye.
