Nithya Menen has always been choosy about her scripts. While she may have turned down a few plump offers, the actress couldn’t let a prestigious project slip out of her hands. The talented Nithya will play the legendary actress Savitri in the NTR biopic.
Interestingly, Nithya even came close to playing the yesteryear star in her biopic.
The film’s director Krish felt that Nithya’s ravishing looks and body language would perfectly complement the demeanour of Savitri.
“Nithya Menen is glad that she’s gotten the chance to play Savitri, one of her favourite actresses. It’s a role that only a few actresses can pull off. She’s thrilled to be on board,” informs a source from the unit.
