About working on a digital series, the actress has said, “For me, I was excited at the prospect of being able to do what I have always wanted to do as an actor. Be in a space where content is open and free. So as an actor, I suddenly felt really hopeful when this OTT stuff started coming. I was like, ‘Oh there you go. That’s my space! That’s where I would thrive.”
The actress also spoke about working alongside Abhishek Bachchan, revealing, “Abhishek and me, that’s an unusual pairing. But Mayank (director) said, ‘I always knew you and Abhishek would look fantastic together. Even the difference in you will look fabulous.’ And we felt it as well. Actually, there is some kind of chemistry that works. Our characters look nice together. They look like they belong together. These things are not something you plan; they just happen”.
Nithya Menen and Abhishek Bachchan will be seen playing a married couple that does all that they can to bring back their kidnapped daughter Siya. Directed by Mayank Sharma, the series is created and produced by Abundantia Entertainment.
