Happy Birthday Sai Pallavi: One major fact about Premam star her fans should know
Sai Pallavi may have gained recognition with Malayalam film Premam, but she hails from Tamil Nadu’s Coimbatore
Sai Pallavi is now a hot property of South film industry. She got noticed after the success of Nivin Pauly-starrer Premam
However, Sai Pallavi is not happy with the Malayali tag and is reportedly deeply upset with the media and people calling her a 'mallu girl' or a 'Malayali heroine'.
The reason for everyone assuming Sai Pallavi to be a Malayali was her film Premam, a blockbuster which was also remade in Telugu with the same title. Her character from the film, Malar, has become so popular that it probably made everyone think she is a Malayali.
However, the actress wants to be identified as a Tamil girl, as her native place is Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu and she doesn't want to be called a 'mallu.'
Recently, a Telugu entertainment magazine had reported that the actress expressed her displeasure when someone described her as a Malayali during a film promotion.
As per reports, she requested media to address her as a Tamil girl and not a Malayali. Sai Pallavi made it clear that she was born and brought up in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, and that she was a true-blue Tamil girl.
