In just a short span of time, Fidaa fame Sai Pallavi became one of the most wanted actresses in T-Town. Fidaa, starring Varun Tej and directed by Sekhar Kammula, released on the 21st of July 2017, became a huge hit at the box office. A lot of directors are approaching her with offers to work opposite big stars. In a recent interview, she opened up about herself and her future plans.
Speaking about Fidaa, Sai Pallavi said she did not expect such a huge response. She knew the movie would be a hit, but she did not even imagine it would be to this extent. Sai Pallavi got a positive response across the world making her experience pure bliss. She was worried about doing justice to the role or even get the accent right. The credits for this, Pallavi gave to director Sekhar Kammula.
Speaking about the making of Bhanumati, she said they actually conducted workshops and observed how villages work. No wonder the movie became such a big hit. The movie gave attention to every single detail of the village life. A lot of people have said Sai Pallavi started a new trend of no makeup with Fidaa. To this, she again gives credits to Sekhar Kammula saying if it weren’t for him, she would not be that confident. He gave women a new identity and showed that young girls can be appreciated just the way they are.
About the response she received, Sai Pallavi said there were a few things that people said which made her feel like she was on top of the world. A person from her sets, who always hated the Telangana accent and stopped his kids from using it actually changed his mind after watching Fidaa. This is a huge compliment for her because in the movie, they wanted to show the richness of Telangana culture. People compared her with the likes of Savitri and Soundarya after this movie.
Speaking about her co-actors, she says she developed a very close bond with Sai Chand (Bhanumati’s father). It felt like a real father-daughter bond they established. Pallavi spoke about her chemistry with Varun Tej and said he is a shy guy who would quietly do his shots and leave. But the way he performed was commendable. On working with Dil Raju, she mentioned Fidaa is her third film with him and she finds his passion commendable. She loves dancing but for Fidaa, dancing credits only go to Sekhar Master for his amazing choreography.
Currently, she is working on the movies Middle Class Abbayi (MCA) opposite Nani and she signed a film opposite Naga Shourya.
In her personal life, Sai Pallavi finished her MBBS. She said she would love to go back and pursue cardiology to work as a doctor. Wishing the new star Sai Pallavi all the very best for her upcoming movies!
