The trailer for Sai Pallavi and Nani starrer MCA which stands for 'Middle Class Abbayi' is out.
The upcoming film directed by Sriram Venu will be the popular Sai Pallavi's second outing in the Telugu industry after the blockbuster Fidaa. The trailer starts with Nani explaining that 'MCA' does not stand for any qualification but refers to the middle class mindset which adjusts with a pin when the shirt button falls off, shows off by ripping regular jeans and wearing them, and looks at a beautiful woman at the bus-stop and imagines a family photograph with her and three kids in the frame.
Then, just as we imagine that it's going to be the regular hero pursuing woman story, Sai Pallavi's character turns around and asks an unsuspecting Nani if he'd like to marry her because she really likes him. We also catch a glimpse of her inviting the shy guy for a hug.
Sai Pallavi won over the Telugu audience with the character Bhanumathi which she played in Fidaa. Although her first film, she did the dubbing by herself. The Shekhar Kammula romcom went on to become a big hit. So far, Sai Pallavi has acted in three films - Premam, Kali and Fidaa. She's had substantial roles to play in each of these films and it looks like the forthright character in MCA, too, will have something new to offer.
Although Premam was a huge hit in Malayalam, Sai Pallavi did not do the Telugu remake of the film. Her character, Malar Teacher, was done by Shruti Haasan. The casting led to much trolling on social media. Sai Pallavi will also be making her debut in Tamil shortly with Karu, a horror film.
Nani's last film Ninnu Kori did well at the box-office, too.
