Marriage has brought the curtains down on many film actresses’ career, but Kannada actress Nithya Ram belongs to a different breed. She is stepping into filmdom after her marriage and will debut with Muddu Manase opposite Aru Gowda. The film, which is directed by Ananth, who has previously worked as assistant director in a couple of films, started the shoot last Sunday with the actress.

Nithya also happens to be actress Rachita Ram’s sister, who made her debut with Bulbul opposite Darshan.

Coming with a rich background of art; her father, KS Ramu being a classical dancer, Nithya, who is also a senior dancer, always had an inclination towards the celluloid world. Like a few others, Nithya too took her first step through the small screen with a serial Benkiyalli Aralida Hoovu.

“I started my acting career with a television serial before marriage and I continue to be part of serials even today. I have completed five serials in Kannada and two in Tamil,” says Nithya who adds, “In fact I had plenty of offers coming my way when I was doing my first serial. I was even selected for a movie opposite Diganth and had packed my bags to Mangalore for the shoot. But unfortunately, there was no clarity on the sets and I had to return home.”

All of 23 years, Nithya is a graduate in Biotechnology and even worked in the field but her dream of becoming a heroine never died.

“I got married at the age of 21, immediately after I completed my first serial. I realised that I had to remove the obsession of acting from my mind after marriage because my husband, Vinod Gowda was initially hesitant to allow me to work in movies because he had heard, read and watched the positive and negative sides of the film industry. Whenever I got selected for movies, there was rejection in my house. But finally a day arrived when my husband accepted. My father-in-law supported me strongly too,” she says.

Of course, there are conditions, says Nithya. “I have strictly been given a list of dos and don’ts from my family, which I wish to follow. I can only be part of films, where there is no room for exposure. All I can showcase is my acting,” she says.
