When it comes to stardom in Tamil Nadu, Ajith Kumar comes only second to superstar Rajinikanth. No heroine would dare to reject if provided an opportunity to act alongside him but Malayalam actress Sai Pallavi did it.
Post the success of her Malayalam debut film ‘Premam’, Sai Pallavi garnered an unprecedented fan following. Many actresses would have signed a handful of films to utilize that craze but Sai Pallavi has a different strategy. She is choosing films carefully. It came as a shock to movie lovers when Sai Pallavi rejected the chance to romance Thala Ajith in his 57th film referred to as Thala 57.
Many opined it is the headstrong attitude of Sai Pallavi. Few say that she might have thought of not romancing a senior hero at the very beginning of her career. She even has rejected Mani Ratnam’s film chance citing exams.
Sai Pallavi has signed Varun Tej’s film in Sekhar Kammula’s direction instead.
