It is no secret that the lovely Sai Pallavi is one of the most popular young stars in the Southern film industry today. She made her big screen debut in 2015 with the surprise hit ‘Premam’ and began a new chapter in life. A romantic-drama, it received praise from movie buffs as well as critics and saw her star opposite young heartthrob Nivin Pauly. Talking about its success, she had said that ‘Premam’ helped her grow as a person and gave her confidence.
“On the release day, I called up Nivin and Alphonse and wept because I was convinced my role as ‘Malar Teacher’ would be panned. I was proven wrong. Alphonse wanted me to appear natural on screen, because he said it would give people confidence. Ironically, it gave me confidence. I don’t hide anymore,” she had told a leading daily.
Post that, the lovely lady acted opposite Dulquer Salmaan and continued her tryst with success. She also managed to impress fans courtesy her crackling chemistry with DQ. Earlier this year, Sasi Pallavi entered the Telugu film industry with ‘Fidaa’ and became the newest heartthrob of T-town. In the sleeper hit, she essayed the role of a lady from Telangana and made fans go weak in the knees.
Speaking about the film’s success, she had said that she felt overwhelmed by the love that came her way courtesy her portrayal of Bhanumathi.
“It feels so overwhelming. I was really surprised by this kind of response, especially for my dialogues in the Telangana accent. I’m on cloud nine. Having learnt the Telangana accent, whenever I think of Telugu now, I can only relate with this accent,” Sai Pallavi had told IANS.
Now, there is some good news for her fans. In an exciting development, the makers of her ’Karu’ have announced that the film will hit screens on 9 February 2018. It is touted to be a horror-thriller and has been directed by AL Vijay. In it, Sai Pallavi will be seen playing the role ofd a young mother.

Sometime ago, the director had said that the actress has done a terrific job in ‘Karu’.
“Right from the beginning, I was very confident that Sai would be able to pull it off. I watched Premam as well as Kali. I loved her performance in both. She was very impressive in the latter. She has done a wonderful job in Karu,” he had told a leading daily.
AL Vijay had also revealed that the film will touch upon the sensitive issue of abortion.
“It is an intense subject and focuses on the bond between a mother and her four-year-old daughter. Sai Pallavi essays the mother. The movie touches upon the issue of abortion and I can’t reveal anything more at this point of time,” he had revealed.
Besides Sai Pallavi, ‘Karu’ also stars Naga Shaurya in the lead.
On a related note, this is an eventful time for Sai Pallavi. Besides ‘Karu’, she also has ‘MCA’ and ‘Maari 2’ in her kitty. ‘MCA’ is a drama and has been directed by Venu Sree Raam. In it, she will be seen alongside ‘Natural Star’ Nani. Needless to say, this fresh pairing hads created a buzz amongst fans and made the wait for the film difficult. Recently, producer Dil Raju had said that Sai Pallavi-Nani’s chemistry will be a highlight of the film.
