Actor Sai Pallavi’s debut as heroine with the Malayalam film Premam catapulted her into stardom. The actor, however, was first seen in the Tamil movie Dhaam Dhoom way back in 2008 in which she had donned a small role.
But her biggest break came in the year 2015 with Premam turning out to be a cult hit. She ventured into the Telugu film industry last year with the Sekhar Kammula directorial Fidaa, which again was a big success.
Her last release in Tollywood, Middle Class Abbayi, was a hit and she is now all set to make her debut in Kollywood.
Her first film in Tamil would be Karu, which is being directed by AL Vijay. It is a bilingual that will be released in Telugu under the title Kanam. Besides this, she has two other projects in Kollywood – the Balaji Mohan directorial Maari 2 in which she shares the screen space with the National Award winning actor Dhanush and the untitled Suriya – Selvaraghavan film.
With a slew of films in Kollywood and Tollywood, Sai Pallavi has gone on to ink a deal to star in a Telugu film which has Sharwanand as her lead pair with Hanu Raghavapudi helming the affairs as the director.
According to sources in the know, Sai Pallavi has been paid Rs. 1.5 crores to star in this film. With this, she has joined the other leading actors such as Samantha Akkineni, Kajal Agarwal, Tammanah Bhatia, Anushka Shetty and Nayanthara.
Her rise to stardom with a high remuneration indicates that she is one talented actor who is here to stay!
It may be mentioned here that Sai Pallavi is a doctor and had completed her medical degree at the Tbilisi State Medical University, Georgia in the year 2016.
