Nithya Menen is clearly an Indian actor who has surprised the audiences with her performances in several languages. While OK Kanmani established her as a star down South, Mission Mangal was her big Bollywood debut for which she received immense love. Now, she's all set to make her digital debut with Breathe Into The Shadows, the second season of the gritty suspense thriller. We got a chance to interact with the lovely Nithya who revealed how she never aspired to become an actor, 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, the Mission Mangal actress shares, "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."

The OK Kanmani star 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."

Pretty and oodles of talent... just saw o kadhal kanmani yesterday.. shes so beautiful..' tara' looked so effortless. My fav scene is where she talks about her father... so much pain there..yet tara remains strong... Nithya makes it look good. And as far as weight issues are concerned... actresses are very careful about staying healthy n fit.. hope everything is fine. Vidya balan once had mentioned health issues related to weight gain (??) .. but frankly these actresses are so good their weight doesnt matter. Shouldn't matter.

She was such a natural actress right from her first telugu film. She was considered for jayalalitha film and then probably put on a lot of weight. A lot of us tell our family members if they are putting on weight to consider shedding it. If its become part of life for us normal people, from a celebrity we expect more. Nitya please come back, you are missed
