Everyone knows South Indian actress Nithya Menen for OK Kanmani in South but she made her mark in Bollywood with Mission Mangal which was a big hit at the box office and for which she received immense love from all the fans and the Bollywood fraternity. Now, she’s all set to make her digital debut with Breathe Into The Shadows, the second season of the gritty suspense thriller. Nityhya recently got to talking in an interview and revealed how she had never aspired to become an actor and what made her fall in love with her job and traced her journey. She also addressed the issue of body shaming that many women, including her face on a daily basis and shared her opinion on South vs North debate where people claim that South actors don’t get their due in Bollywood.
While talking about being bodyshamed and how it bothered her, Nithya shared, “Of course, you get affected for sure. There’s no doubt about it. But what happens is that you realise that you will never get criticised by someone who does more than you; you’ll always get criticised by someone who does lesser than you. So you feel I’m an achiever and I’m working on it. Nobody asks why you’re putting on weight; they just assume. There are so many questions to it. Are they going through some health related issues? There’s so much that they don’t even think about.” She further adds, “Those are small things. I don’t believe in blowing up any personal problem and protesting. You do it yourself, you overcome these things. I have never spoken or given interviews about these things. But I do something about it. The way people look at me in the industry, with or without weight, it doesn’t matter, I’m given my due. That speaks more for me.”
