Long back, the iconic Athreya referred to actress Savitri and said “Aavidaku Maranam Ledhu..Alanti Nati Malli Puttadhu”.
True to that, one has never seen a starlet like her but slowly one girl seems to be getting similar appreciations. She is none other than Nithya Menen.
After watching her act in ‘Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde’ many felt she performed like Savitri.
However, it is heard that Nithya doesn’t even know who Savitri is.
During her growing years, the names she heard were Nagma and Sakshi Shivanand.
So, after hearing about Savitri, it is heard that Nithya brought all the DVDs of Savitri movies and started watching them during shot breaks.
At the end of it, she was awestruck with Savitri’s performances. Nithya reportedly stated that she can never match Savitri’s level of performance especially her expression through eyes.
At the same time, Nithya is very appealed by Suryakantham and her roles.
Buzz is that she is quite eager to do roles like Suryakantham. Let us see which director fulfills her wish.
