Nithya Menen said in a statement, “Breathe is the first original digital series I’m doing. I look forward to this a lot, because this medium is a perfect space for me and I’ve been enjoying myself with this. Breathe offers me such a large canvas to exhibit myself and my work, and it’s immensely satisfying for the artiste in me.”
She added, “The show is being made with high standards and I am absolutely enjoying that”.
The show’s director, Mayank Sharma, shared, “I am thrilled that Nithya has joined the cast of Breathe season two. I have always been a great admirer of her work, especially since I watched Ok Kanmani. I had always imagined her to portray this part. On behalf of the Breathe team, I welcome her on board.”
Mayank is also co-writing the second season of the show with Bhavani Iyer, Vikram Tuli, and Arshad Syed.
