In 2015, actress Sai Pallavi began her career in the best way possible when ‘Premam’ became a big hit and earned rave reviews along the way. In the romantic-drama, she was seen alongside Nivin Pauly and delivered a well-received performance. The film was directed by Alphonse Puthren and clicked because of its relatable plot and sincere performances. Talking about the film’s success, she had said that it gave her confidence as a performer.
“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.
After the release of ‘Premam’, she acted opposite Heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan in ‘Kali’ and added another hit to her name. Earlier this year, she entered the Telugu film industry with the sleeper hit ‘Fidaa’ and added a new dimension to her career. Also featuring Varun Tej in the lead, it received rave reviews upon release and helped her became the latest heartthrob of T-town. In it, she essayed the role of a girl from Telangana and made fans go weak in the knees with her simplicity. Talking about its success, she had said that she was overwhelmed by the appreciation that came her way post the release.
“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,” she had told a news agency.
At present, she is gearing up for the release of ‘MCA’. In it, she will be seen alongside ‘Natural Star’ Nani. And, as expected, this brand new pairing has created a buzz amongst fans. Now, it seems that the buzz surrounding the film is set to receive a shot in the arm. In an exciting development, the film’s trailer—which was released a few days ago, has crossed the 4 million views marks on Youtube and proved that fans are pretty much in love with it. This is some awesome news and shows that ‘MCA’ could well be on its way to becoming a success. The Venu Sree Ram directorial will hit screens on December 21.
Interestingly, recently, producer Dil Raju had revealed that ‘MCA’ will be a delight for people from a middle class background.
“Middle Class boys & girls will own this film. Nani and Sai Pallavi’s chemistry will be a treat to watch. Very happy that Bhumika is playing a pivotal role in this film. We are confident that MCA will complete our hattrick list in 2017,” he had added.
As it so happens, ‘MCA arrives just a day before ‘Hello’. And, it goes without saying this clash has created a buzz in the trade circles. However, according to Dil Raju, the clash will not be a problem as both films can do well at the ticket window.
“Akhil’s Hello visuals are fantastic. I wish Telugu audience will love both MCA & Hello for this Christmas,” he had added.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Sai Pallavi. Besides ‘MCA’, she also has ‘Kanam’ in her kitty. It is a horror-thriller and will deal with the issue of abortion. Sometime ago, the director had said that Sai Pallavi has done a terrific job in it.
“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 daily.
