Young actor Sai Pallavi will soon be making her Kollywood debut with the hard-hitting Karu. And, needless to say, she is quite excited about it. The film features her in the role of a young mother and touches upon the issue of abortion. During a recent chat with TNM, the star spoke about Karu and made it clear that she had no reservations about playing a mother as she really liked her character.
“Honestly, I don’t know what kind of roles one should do at what stage in their respective career. When I choose a script, I ensure that I get to contribute to the film in some way and in turn grow as an actor in the process. When I read the script of Karu, there was a spark within and I instantly connected with the story. I was emotionally attached to the story. After we finished shooting, I was so attached to the kid who played my daughter, I wanted to adopt her. That’s how strong my emotional attachment was with the role and the story,” she added.
Interestingly, Sai Pallavi is on a roll as her last two major releases—Fidaa and MCA—were blockbusters. However, she isn’t really too bothered about BO figures as her only objective is to try as many different characters as she possibly can.
“ As long as I act, I want to be part of projects that help me discover myself in some way. I don’t want to repeat characters as I enjoy being someone else in front of the camera. I never think about the box-office numbers. In my mind, when I take up a project I tell myself that I should live up to the full potential of my character,” added Sai Pallavi.
Well, we wish her good luck for Karu and hope that it does well at the box office.
