Sometimes we don't understand why an actress will pick up certain role and why she picks up one. And that decision making is what makes some star heroines and some being end up as praised but neglected actresses.
All this philosophy comes to mind when we have to talk about talented heroine Nitya Menon who is not just beautiful but also a superb actor and singer as well. She's the first choice for "Mahanati" to play the lead but eventually, the role of Savitri went to Keerthi Suresh. Later on the sidelines of a press meet, Nitya shared that she rejected the role because the makers asked her to shed weight.
And now, the makers of #NTR who have earlier approached Nitya Menon to play NTR's wife in the upcoming biopic have now checked with her if she will be interested in portraying Savitri on the silver screen. Stunned by the offer, Nitya is said to have shouted a big yes. Elated!!
One wonders if Nitya is destined to play Mahanati's role on the silver screen at any cost, but the fact is that Savitri biopic would have become a different film if she has taken up the lead role.
