She also bagged a Bollywood project ‘Mission Mangal’. In an interview, Nithya revealed the details of ‘The Iron Lady’ as well. Apparently, director Jagan Shakti and producer R Balki had called and asked her to play a scientist in a really interesting film. “Even in the past, I was offered plenty of Hindi films. I just wanted to be as choosy with the films in other languages. I wanted my debut to be a really nice film and I am happy that I found this nice character. I don’t think we have done a film like this… you know, a space film,” said Nithya. Nithya is also playing late politician Jayalalitha in the biopic ‘The Iron Lady’.
“The film on Jayalalitha is very heavy. I was very impressed when director Priyadarshini came with the film to me. She was very focused. I am really looking forward to doing that film. That will be interesting to explore as an artiste,” she added.
