Sai Dhanshika has starred in several films in her career spanning more than a decade and has bagged some of the best roles. Her performance in Peraanmai, Paradesi, and Kabali are worth a mention. She, in fact, bagged the Filmfare award for the Best Supporting Actress for her role in Pardesi and Kabali.
The actor currently has a number of films needing her attention and notable among it is Yogi Da, which is directed by Gautham Krishna, an erstwhile associate of directors Sibi Malayil and Chakri Toleti.
Yogi Da is bankrolled by Jatpatma Cinemas. While it is a heroine-centric role with the main focus on Sai Dhanshika, the film has Bollywood actor Kabir Singh sharing the screen space with her. The filmâ€™s star cast also includes Sayaji Shinde and Manobala in the supporting roles.
The first look poster of the film was unveiled recently that has a stylish Sai Dhanshika probably in chase of the goons with guns in her hands.
On Yogi Da, the filmâ€™s director Gautham Krishna had said in an interview to the Deccan Chronicle, â€śI canâ€™t reveal much at this point. It is a high-octane action thriller laced with other filmy ingredients including romance, emotions, humor etc. Dhanshika essays a challenging role and even as I wrote the script, I felt no one other than her could do justice to the lead protagonist character. The major advantage is she has trained in martial arts and that she can do risky stunts without needing a body double.â€ť
The filmâ€™s technical crew has Ishrat, sister of the Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman, composing the tunes with Bhoopathy cranking the camera.
It may be mentioned here that Dhanshika shot to limelight for playing Rajinikanthâ€™s daughter in Kabali. Besides Yogi Da, Sai Dhanshika also has the Samuthirakani directotrial Kitna, which is multi-lingual made in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
