Modern Love Hyderabad: Nithya Menen enjoys Hyderabadi food to look ‘authentic’

New Delhi, July 5 (UNI) Powerhouse actor Nithya Menen who is all set for the release of 'Modern Love Hyderabad', has revealed how she had indulged in the Hyderabadi delicacies during the shoot of the show.

Prime Video is gearing up for its second edition of the three localized and fictionalized version of the international series, 'Modern Love Hyderabad'.

Set against the backdrop of the 'City of Pearls', the series features six heartening stories exploring different shades and relationships of love.

One of the episodes titled 'My Unlikely Pandemic Dream Partner' brings together two powerhouse actors, Revathy and Nithya Menen, which is directed by Nagesh Kukunoor. The story explores a special bond between the lead actors. Set in the heart of Hyderabad, as Nagesh says the episode marries his two loves – the old-world charm of Hyderabad and local cuisine.

Nithya had recently revealed a detail that will leave everyone surprised and appreciate her dedication.

"I had been practicing vegetarianism for a while, and when I told the team about it, they were amazed,” said Nithya in a statement, and elaborated that the special chef who was invited to cook the Hyderabadi delicacies also made vegetarian versions of those dishes for the shoot.

"There was so much Hyderabadi food... Finally, at one point, I was like, just give me the chicken, I'll just eat it, it's fine, I have to look authentic. So literally, I keep telling them, they turned me a non-vegetarian. There was too much to eat," she added.

Interestingly, it was one of those episodes where the cast and crew would wait for cut and run to the dining tables to gorge on the Hyderabadi feast, from the famous biryani to Khubani-ka-Meetha, you name it and the delicacy was served.

'Modern Love Hyderabad' is set for global premiere on Amazon Prime Video from July 8. The cast also includes popular names like Suhasini Maniratnam, Naresh, Aadhi Pinisetty, Ritu Varma, Abijeet Duddala, Malavika Nair, Naresh Agastya and Ulka Gupta among others.
