Actor Nithya Menen will now join the cast of Amazon Prime’s original series, Breathe, in the second season. This will mark Menen’s debut in the world of digital streaming.

Nithya Menen expressed her excitement in working on the series, “Breathe offers me a large canvas to exhibit myself and my work. It’s immensely satisfying for the artiste in me,” she said.  The actress also went on to say that the medium was a perfect space for her and she’s enjoying working on it as there are more hours of content and so much more space and time to explore. This will be yet another feather in her hat as the actress has about 50 films to her credit already.

Breathe already features Abhishek Bachchan in the  lead and has Amit Sadh reprising a role of an inspector. The first season saw actor R Madhavan in the lead. The director of the series Mayank Sharma said that he was thrilled to have Nithya join the cast of Breathe as he has always admired her for her work, especially in the film OK Kanmani. “I had always imagined her to portray this part,” Sharma added. Mayank is also co-writing the second season with Bhavani Iyer, Vikram Tuli, and Arshad Syed.

Breathe is a psychological thriller series that follows the lives of ordinary people stuck in extraordinary circumstances. The series was created by Abundantia Entertainment and produced by Vikram Malhotra. The second season is currently under production and will be released across 200 countries and territories.
