Is there any need to give an introduction to Sai Pallavi? Obviously, a big no. She is one of the most talented film stars in the South Indian film industry. The actress is not only known for her incredible acting skills but also for her dancing skills. She acted in Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam films. She is a recipient of several awards including two Filmfare Awards for her performances in the films Premam (2015) and Fidaa (2017). She grabbed all the attention after her role Malar in the 2015 Malayalam film Premam. She then acted in Kali (2016). She made her Telugu debut playing the role Bhanumati in the romantic film Fidaa. Later, she acted in many movies.
On the professional front, she is waiting for the release of Virata Parvam, a period drama film written and directed by Venu Udugula, and produced by D. Suresh Babu and Sudhakar Cherukuri. Sai Pallavi is seen opposite Rana Daggubati while Priyamani, Nandita Das, Naveen Chandra, Zarina Wahab, Easwari Rao, and Sai Chand play supporting roles. The plot revolves around the Naxalite movement that took place in the Telangana region in the 1990s.
In the movie, Rana essays the role of Comrade Ravanna who is known by his pen name Aranya. Sai Pallavi will be seen as his admirer named Vennela. The movie is also set in the backdrop of the Naxalite movement in the Telangana region.
We all know that Sai Pallavi is one of the most dedicated actresses in Tollywood. For one of the scenes in the movie, she starved the entire day. The director of the film in an interview said that “There is this one penultimate sequence in the film. After I narrated it to Sai Pallavi, she decided not to take any food for a day, just to get the intensity right. The scene shaped up exceptionally well. She gave her cent percent for the film and it was unreal to watch her bring the character to life on screen.”
Virata Parvam is one of the most awaited movies in the Telugu film industry and the film is going to hit the theatres on 17 June.
