Nithya Menen is an Indian actress celebrated for her work in films in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi industries. She has received three Filmfare Awards for Telugu films Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde, Malli Malli Idi Rani Roju, and Mersal in Tamil.

Recently, a scene from her web series ‘Breathe: Into The Shadows’ with Abhishek Bacchan went viral. The web series is the sequel to 'Breathe' starring Madhavan in the lead role. It streams on Amazon Prime.

Nithya plays the role of a mother whose daughter has been kidnapped in the series and seen kissing another actress in a car.

The liplock scene has sparked controversy online. While the actress essayed a role like this in the Telugu film 'Awe', this is the first time she has kissed a woman on camera.

Talking about her role, Nithya Menen said it is one of the best performances she has given to date. The psychological crime thriller will unravel multiple facets of Nithya's character and she admits, "It was too meaty a role to pass up."

The actress is popularly known for her unconventional roles in films across the cine industry. Perhaps, she's just challenging herself with this new attempt.
