After the casting of Nani's first production, "Awe!" was revealed, people began to wonder how much he would have invested in big names like Kajal, Nithya Menen, Regina, Avasarala and others. We have heard that most of the stars who have worked for this one-of-a-kind movie, have reduced their fees because they fell in love with the characters offered. The last we hear is this little sensation, Nithya Menen did not charge a single penny for Awe! She worked for free for the movie both because of the interesting character that was offered to her and also the very thin appeal sheets she was asked for. Nithya, who weighs the character offered in relation to factors such as whether it is an A-list or not, immediately gives her a nod because she thinks that the role is unavoidable.
Nithya's friendship with Nani is another reason. We remember that she made her Tollywood debut with Nani starrer, Ala Modalaindi, who made her a star overnight. Since then, the two natural actors have maintained a very close association. The talented actress Malayali must be applauded for participating in the promotional events, even if she was not paid. The actress, who charges lakhs and even crores for movies and promotions yet to jump, should pull out a sheet of Nithya's book.
