About :

Nithya Menen was born in Banashankari, Bangalore to Malayali parents. She studied journalism at the Manipal University. 

She once said in an interview that she never wished to become an actress but a journalist, but ultimately found journalism unappealing, so she pivoted to filmmaking, and enrolled in a cinematography course at the Film and Television Institute of India at Pune. During the school's entrance exam, she met B. V. Nandini Reddy, who convinced Menen to take up acting. Reddy would later turn director and sign Menen for a lead role in her first Telugu film. Even though Menen's mother tongue is Malayalam, she can speak many South Indian languages.

Career :

After completing her studies, she got interested to be a filmmaker to express her ideas. So she had a plan to do a course in cinematography at the FTI, Pune, but it didn't happen. Earlier, Nithaya Menon appeared on screen as a child artist in the movie Hanuman, when she was eight years old.
