After making a smashing debut in Telugu with Fidaa, actor Sai Pallavi is currently busy dubbing for her first Tamil film Karu, a woman-centric horror drama that’ll touch upon the issue of abortion.

The film has been directed by A.L Vijay, best known for helming Devi, Thaandavam and Vanamagan. Talking to Deccan Chronicle, Vijay said the film will focus on the relationship between a mother and her four-year-old daughter.

“It is an intense subject and focuses on the bond between a mother and her four-year-old daughter. Sai Pallavi essays the mother. The movie touches upon the issue of abortion and I can’t reveal anything more at this point of time,” he said, adding he was hell-bent on working with Pallavi from the beginning.

“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.”

Pallavi, after impressing Telugu audiences with her own dubbing, will also dub in her own voice for Karu, which will release in Telugu as Kanam, and co-stars Naga Shourya. Apparently, Pallavi came forward to dub and Vijay feels it’ll enhance her role.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that Vijay and Prabhudheva, who had previously worked together in last year’s horror flick Devi, are set to reunite for a new project, to be bankrolled by Trident Arts. There were rumours that there’ll be a sequel to Devi, which was a sleeper hit in Tamil but sank without a trace in Hindi and Telugu. It’s not yet known whether Vijay is joining hands with Prabhudheva for Devi sequel or if they’re working on a new project.
