Speaking to a leading daily, Nithya Menen shared her bothersome experience about body shaming. The actress said, “Of course, you get affected for sure. There’s no doubt about it. Nobody asks why you’re putting on weight, they just assume. There are so many questions about it. Are they going through some health related issues? There’s so much that they don’t even think about(sic.)”
Nithya said that she never raised a hue and cry about body shaming because she got her due, irrespective of how she looks. “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(sic.)”
On the work front, Nithya Menen was last seen in Telugu in Janatha Garage in 2016 and Awe in 2018. In 2019, she played a cameo as Savitri in NTR: Kathanayakudu, the NTR biopic.
