Despite the COVID-19 lockdown, Nithya Menen is a busy bee with some promising movies in her kitty. The actress stands out from the others for her impeccable performances in some brilliantly made women-centric films.
Recently, rumours were rife about her inclusion in the Karnam Malleshwari biopic. There were also reports suggesting that the actress has declined the film due to date issues with her upcoming film on late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalithaa.
Nithya Menen And Karnam Malleshwari Project
Well now, the actress has rubbished the rumour of rejecting the project while interacting with Pinkvilla. She was quoted as saying, "That's absolutely untrue. I have never got an offer like that before."
When asked if she would be wanting to do the Karnam Malleshwari project if offered, Nithya said, "I don't think I would suit it at all. Who would approach someone like me to play her? A biopic is a very important thing..you need to look like that person, you can't just cast any actor in a biopic, the actor should have physical resemblance..so I don't think they would approach me either."
Nithya Menon’s The Iron Lady
Interestingly, she also talked about her Jayalalithaa biopic titled The Iron Lady being compared with Kangana Ranaut's Thalaivi. Nithya said that she had asked the director of the film, Priyadarshini if they should continue with the movie, after she heard about Kangana's project. "I asked the director when I got to know about it. I said what do you want to do..it looks like there's another film coming up..do you still want to do this..She said she wanted to do it because of her personal reason. She is extremely fond of her. She has interacted with her (Jayalalithaa) for a couple of times. She said let them do it..we will also do it.. I said that's a great way to look at it. Our film is structured slightly different from what they (Makers of Thalaivi) have structured", she said. Well, we are excited for the project. What do you think? Tell us in the comment section.
