Mersal 

Nithya played the role of Aishwarya, Vetrimaaran’s who dies while delivering her second in the hospital.

The movie directed by Atlee was a hit at the box office and we see no reason why the movie shouldn’t be remade in Hindi.

OK Kanmani

A beautiful romantic drama that continues to make us smile even after so many years. Nithya plays the role of Tara who falls in love with Adi. But since they both don’t believe in the institution of marriage, they decide to have a live-in relationship. A perfect romantic entertainer that will compel you to in love at least once in your life.

Nithya plays the titular role of Malini who marries a travel agent since she wants to settle in Canada. However, her happy life turns tragic when her husband’s boss rapes her and leaves her scarred for the rest of her life. She then decides to seek her revenge. Nithya’s performance was commendable in this one and she was able to lift the weight of the entire movie on her shoulders.

100 Days of Love 

Another romantic drama starring Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menen (after OK Kanmani). Salmaan in here plays the role of Balan who falls in love with Sheela, the same girl whom he bullied in school. And while he gears up to ask her out, he realises she’s already getting married and only believes in arranged marriages. Do they have a happily ever after? Watch the movie to find out.

Ustad Hotel 

Another Dulquer-Nithya starrer! The movie sees Dulquer as a chef who has studied in Switzerland who has a fallout with his father. Hence he decides to help his grandfather run his old restaurant. While he helps his grandfather resurrects his restaurant, he also becomes responsible and understands the importance of how a chef can feed people but only a good cook can feed hearts as well.

He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm–and also because you never knew what he might say next,” Harry said in a social media statement, on April 12.

“He will be remembered as the longest-reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke. But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ’til the end.”

Addressing his grandfather as a “rock” to Queen Elizabeth II, who he was married to for 73 years, he also added, “You will be sorely missed, but always remembered — by the nation and the world. Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.” On the other , Meghan, who is currently expecting her second child with Harry this summer, was advised by doctors not to travel to London.
