Nithya Menen: Bad behaviour is everywhere, not only in cinema

Nithya Menen is a woman of her words. She doesn’t mince words and is clear cut on her thoughts which also reflects in the kind of films that she does. She recently took part in a panel discussion alongside Rashmika Mandanna which had mediated by Baradwaj Rangan.
 
Speaking at the event, Nithya Menen has an eye-opening answer when asked about the safety of women in the film industry. She said, “You are safe as you allow yourself to be. No one will force you. Bad behavior is everywhere not only in the film industry. You need to decide what you want to do how much you want or don’t want to compromise." 
 
She also released that she wanted to become a filmmaker and make content on animals, but accidentally became an actress. She said that she’s not an actress material.
 
Explaining more about it, she revealed, “I wanted to be in the forest, around animals, make films on them. My personality was so not suited for the film industry, no diplomacy, no fondness for attention. But very recently I started to develop an incredible love for cinema. What a beautiful medium this is. I can make something that can change the emotional state of people.”
