Actress Nithya Menon has the habit of speaking out her mind. Though her candid talk has gotten herself into some problems in the past, she hasn’t changed her basic nature and remains the same as she would always be. The chirpy actress, who takes up mostly the girl-next-door kind of roles, is clear in the mind about one thing in her career: that she would be a misfit to portray glamour-filled characters on-screen.
She hasn’t been spotted much in Tamil films and offers an explanation as to why it is so. “Blame it on my luck; unfortunately, I’m not getting any exciting offers from Tamil film-makers and that’s the reason I’m doing only a few Tamil films now,” says Nithya Menon and adds “I know my strengths and weaknesses; I’m more suited to the family-oriented subjects like the many films I have done in Malayalam .”
“When I’m offered a film, I don’t check up to find out as to who plays the lead hero and if I’m the only heroines in it. If I feel my role has some scope to display my acting credentials, I take up the offer. It’s as simple as that. I have also not faced any problems in starring various languages. I try to grasp what the sequence is all about and emote accordingly. Language is not a barrier to starring in films.
“Some directors did try to push me into the commercial world of films. However, I have not given in my basic rule . More over I feel that my kind of body and face aptly suits an average woman from a middle-class family in the country. As such, I shall continue to portray only such roles and won’t surrender to the candy of commercial films offered to my by some film-makers,” concludes the Nithya Menon girl.
