Actress Nithya Menen recalls how she became good friends with co-star Ashok Selvan on the set of their Telugu rom-com Ninnila Ninnila in London. She sees it as a good sign for the upcoming film's prospects upon release. "It is like we all friends came together for this beautiful film. I am reminded of the days of Ala Modalaindi (her Telugu debut). Confirmed! Nithya Menen Is Teaming Up With Dhanush.

During its making, director Nandini Reddy, Nani and I became good friends. The film became a big hit. I wish that Ninnila Ninnila repeats the feat," Nithya says. "This film is entirely different from the kind of movies I have done before. It has got so much feel. We enjoyed ourselves together like friends while shooting for it. Each of the songs released so far has been received well by the listeners. Our film is going to leave you with a smile," she promises fans. Breathe Into The Shadows: Nithya Menen Opens Up About Her Character in Her Digital Debut.
