Nithya said that it was the first time she acted alongside a big hero. It is well known that Nithya had earlier acted alongside Allu Arjun in ‘Son of Satyamurthy.’ ‘Doesn’t she consider Bunny as a big hero,’ was the immediate though of many who attended and watched her speech.
But, this indirect punch to Bunny might not have been intentional. Nithya Menen could have been in excitement to praise NTR and the film so she might have made that statement. Further, if we have, to be frank, Nithya Menen did not play a heroine role in Son of Satyamurthy but just a cameo. In Janatha Garage, she is playing a parallel lead to Samantha, who missed the music release function.
