"Breathe offers me such a large canvas to exhibit myself and my work, and it's immensely satisfying for the artiste in me. The show is being made with high standards and I am absolutely enjoying that," she added.

The second season of the show is already under production and will be released on Amazon Prime Video across 200 countries and territories.
Director Mayank Sharma is thrilled that Nithya has joined the cast of Breathe season two.
"I have always been a great admirer of her work, especially since I watched Ok Kanmani. I had always imagined her to portray this part," Sharma added.
Breathe is a psychological thriller series that follows the lives of ordinary
people faced with extraordinary circumstances.
