Silverscreen divas Nithya Das and Navya Nair have charmed the Malayali cine lovers with some amazing roles. The duo entered the film industry, made a mark and left the limelight after they got married.
After so many years, recently, the actresses came together on the 'Onnum Onnum Moonnu' show aired on Mazhavil Manorama and impressed the audience with their amazing camaraderie. They had a great time singing songs, playing interesting games and sharing memories of their movie experiences.
Nithya, who quit acting post her wedding, is a mother of two. The actress even brought her daughter Nayana and six-month-old son to the sets. Nayana helped her mother in the games and performed tasks like knocking down the water bottles and finding out words from the dictionary. Nithya brought her son onto the floor when the little one cried from behind the stage. She happily introduced the youngest member in her family to the audience.
The song ‘Kakkatile kukootile papathiye va’ from her debut movie 'Ee Parakkum Thalika' (2001) was played when she was welcomed to the stage by the host Rimy Tomy. She even shared some interesting memories from the sets of the movie.
Nithya’s husband Arvind Singh, hailing from Punjab, is a crew member with Air India. They had met each other during a flight and married at the Sri Krishna temple, Guruvayoor, in 2007. The family currently resides in Kozhikode.
Talking about the first meet, Nithya credited two big directors two initiated their love story.
"I happened to see director Ranjith and director Vinu on the same flight I had taken from from Chennai to Kozhikode. We were having a good time as we were making fun of each other. Then I spotted this particular person (Arvind ) who looked handsome. I told the same to the directors and soon they played a prank on me by calling him to our seating place. I was so embarrassed not knowing how to respond and both of them were telling him how I was admiring his looks. After we reached our destination, we left for our places and I forgot the episode. The very next time when I got the same flight, the same person too was there. It happened three or four times while I took the flight. Then we exchanged numbers, became close which soon blossomed into love and got married," recalled Nithya.
Nithya and Navya who are quite good friends visit each other's house on various occasions and it was Navya who revealed that Nithya's husband spoke Malayalam quite fluently.
