Yes it is really tough being a Nitya Menen in film industry. The engineer turned actress has been particularly particular about her roles in the movies. In an industry guided by stardom’s and remunerations, she chose to rise above all those and chose only those roles which will add value to her portfolio.
Call it arrogance or whatever, no amount of money can tempt her and many producers returned empty handed after offering her hefty sum and masala roles. She is currently playing a rape victim in movie titled ‘Malini 22’, a role which none of her contemporaries can dare to touch. That too directed by a female director who is wielding megaphone for the first time. Good going Nitya and all the best!
