Making of JFW Covershoot with Nithya Menen – Promo



Nithya Menen was born in Bangalore, Karnataka to a Malayali family.[2] She studied journalism at the Manipal University.[6] She once said in an interview that she never wished to become an actress but a journalist, as she was “an idealist”,[7][8] but felt journalism was “not what it used to be”.[9] She then decided to become a filmmaker as she could express her ideas “better through films”,[8][10] and enrolled for a course in cinematography at the FTII Pune. During the educational entrance examination, she met B. V. Nandini Reddy, who “brainwashed”[11] and convinced her to take up acting.[12] Nandini Reddy would later turn director and sign Nithya for the lead female role in her first project.
