Nithya Menen, who was seen last in Modern Love Hyderabad (that currently streams on Amazon Prime Video) thrashed rumours of her marriage, with a leading actor in Malayalam cinema. Speaking to a leading publication, the OK Kanmani actor clarified that there was zero truth attached to the rumours that were being circulated on social media, and urged the press to exercise caution, while reporting stories.
The news was first put out by a National daily. Nithya Menen added, "This is false. I wish the media would take the effort to verify the truth before publishing such stories." Further, the actor said she's busy focusing on her film career.
Up next, Nithya Menen will star in 19(1)(a). Also, featuring Vijay Sethupathi, the teaser dropped recently. And, the film is set to release on Disney+ Hotstar soon.
Written and directed by Indhu VS, the project has Indrajith Sukumaran, and Indrans, among others, in key roles. The title refers to Article 19 (1) of the Constitution of India which discusses fundamental rights, including freedom of speech and expression.
19(1)(a) is bankrolled by Anto Joseph and Neeta Pinto. The film has music by Govind Vasantha of Gargi fame, and cinematography by Manesh Madhavan. Notably, this one is Vijay Sethupathi's second outing in Malayalam following Maarconi Mathaai in 2019.
Nithya Menen, who speaks her mind, in an interview, spoke about her approach to the craft. The actor insists she has chosen her films intuitively, that too, only when she's convinced. "I’ve been like this since the beginning," she smiles.
Menon asks for narration when directors approach her. “Female actors who’ve done only two or three films normally don’t ask for a narration when they are approached. But I’ve always insisted on a narration. For instance, before Ala Modalaindi, I turned down quite a few Malayalam films featuring some of the biggest actors. Had I taken them up, my career graph would have been different,” she reveals.
Interestingly, the actor adds she does not care about just looking good on screen or how people perceive her. “Many venture into films to get something: be it fame, money, or the joy of playing a good role... I believe in offering something of myself to the craft. I'm not afraid, and I have nothing to lose.”
