Sai Pallavi had a roller coaster ride in her career so far starting with reality shows to making it big in the film industry. Asianet Newsable tracks her journey to fame as she celebrates her birthday today.
Sai Pallavi first appeared in a dance reality show Ungalil Yaar Adutha Prabhu Deva on Vijay TV in 2008 and reached up to the semi finals. Back then she was in class 11. Although she did not make it to the finals, she stunned audiences galore.
After spotting her, director Alphonse Phutren gave her a break in Premam opposite Nivin Pauly in 2015. Pallavi, who was still pursuing her MBBS then, became a star overnight as the film became a super hit in Malayalam. Her role as Malar, made the younger generation fall in love with her.
Based on the success, she bagged a role opposite Dulquer Salmaan in Kali in 2016. It helped catapult her success in the Telugu industry. She debuted in Telugu with Fidaa opposite Varun Tej and the film became a romantic hit of 2017.
Although she made her Tamil debut with Diya in 2018, she hit the spotlight with Maari 2 with Dhanush. The song Rowdy Baby created a record for being the only Indian song to cross 800 million.
Although she achieved stardom, Pallavi always stood her ground. Her decision of not taking the pay from the producer after one of her films tanked at the box office earned her praise.
Now, the actress is gearing up for romantic film Love Story with Naga Chaitanya. The film will be released once the lockdown is lifted.
