Nithya Menen has put out a video in which she has clarified that she is not getting married anytime soon, as was reported by a section of the media.
Taking to Instagram, the actress, who is recovering from an ankle injury, said, “I'll take this opportunity to confirm I am not getting married. It is just a big happy made-up story. There is nothing close to it. No plans. Nobody in the picture. That's not happening. Just a classic case of someone bored making up an article and it was picked up by everybody in the media without doing any background checks or without confirming at all.”
The Malayalam actor added, she was always going to take breaks from acting and needed that time to recuperate. “It's the kind of person I am. Most actors do it. It's new to people here. I'll never be able to work continuously or mechanically. I've had a tough one year; I worked every day. Because of the lockdown, everything got piled up and I had to work every day. I have five or six more projects that are going to be released!”
Giving an update on how her ankle was healing, she added, her ankle was a lot better. “I have started walking now. I can put my weight on it. I did enjoy the immobility it caused because it came at the right time after I finished all my pending projects.”
Stating that her vacation had started, Nithya said that she would take it easy, travel and recuperate now.
Nithya resisted becoming an actor for many years before becoming one reluctantly. Her film debut was as a child in Myles Conti's The Monkey Who Knew Too Much, in which she played Tabu's younger sister. Her next appearance was as a teen in Santosh Rai Pathaje's Kannada film 7 O'Clock (2005). Following that was KP Kumaran's Aakasha Gopuram (2008), in which she was 17 but co-starred with Mohanlal.
Good roles are hard to come by, and Nithya believes she has only scratched the surface of her potential. "People tend to see you in a certain type of role if, say, a certain type of film is successful," she stated.
Nithya has consistently worked in films in the four major southern languages since 2008. Along the way, she's earned a reputation for being uninterested in the song-and-dance routine that heroines are required to perform.
The actor will be next seen in the Malayalam film 19 (1)(a), which features Vijay Sethupathi, and Dhanush's Thiruchitrambalam.
