When Sai Pallavi, as a 11th standard student, failed in the semi finals of the reality television show Ungalil yaar adutha Prabhu Deva 10 years ago, little did she realize she would make it big as a heroine. The gorgeous actor not only made it big but also got to work with the iconic dance choreographer Prabhu Deva. She was shooting for a dance sequence for Maari 2 for which Prabhu Deva had choreographed. Sharing a picture of her with the choreographer, she had tweeted: When things don’t go the way you wish, remember, that if you’ve given your best, life blesses u with something even better. P.S. This pic was taken 10 yrs later in the same set in which we shot “Ungalil yaar adutha Prabhu Deva.”
Sai Pallavi made her acting debut with an uncredited role in the 2005 release Kasthuri Maan and was then seen in Dhaam Dhoom again in an uncredited role. However, her biggest break came with the Malayalam film Premam, which shot her to instant fame. Her character Malar in the film catapulted her to the star status following which she started to bag prestigious offers.
She is currently busy playing the female lead in NGK, which is being directed by Selvaraghavan. In this movie, Sai Pallavi will be sharing the screen space with Suriya. Besides this Tamil film, she has also inked a deal to star in Malayalam film which has Fahadh Faasil in the lead role. The film, directed by Vivek, has not been titled yet.
Sai Pallavi’s last film release in Tamil was the Dhanush starrer Maari 2, which went on to do well at the box office.
