Nithya Menen who is fondly referred as “Modern Soundarya” is likely to turn “Modern Savitri” now.
Going into the details, Nithya Menen was apparently zeroed in for the titular role in the biopic of the legendary actress Savitri. Yevade Subramanyam fame director Nag Ashwin approached many top actresses in the country including Vidya Balan, Deepika Padukone and others but looks like the director has to finally settle down with Nithya Menen, according to latest reports.
Well Nithya already commands good image and following in South Indian cinema. Interestingly her facial features also resemble the late actress. So apparently chances are bright that Nithya will be signed for this prestigious biopic.
This is touted to be a trilingual project (Telugu, Tamil & Malayalam) and the final announcement is expected very soon.
