Earlier today, as a celebration of Sai Pallavi’s birthday, the makers of her upcoming film Gargi released its first look. “I waited months to talk about this film, And finally!!! my birthday is when the stubborn team decided to give in and release this ☺️Presenting to you, GARGI ❤️, @prgautham83’s brain child!” Sai Pallavi wrote, along with the first look image and making of the film video.
The Gautham Ramachandran directorial is releasing in multiple languages (Tamil, Telugu and Kannada) and Sai Pallavi has dubbed for herself for all, including for the Kannada version. Rakshit Shetty, whose Ulidavaru Kandanthe was remade as Richie by Gautham with Nivin Pauly earlier, took to social media to wish the actress and applaud her effort in dubbing for the Kannada version of the film. “You have fought against all odds to reach here. The world will know your talent when #Gargi comes out. So happy for you my friend @prgautham83 … All the best. @Sai_Pallavi92 Happy to see you dub in Kannada. Wishing you Happy Birthday,” he tweeted.
Kannada audiences have eagerly been waiting for Sai Pallavi to work in a film here. And while there have been rumours every now and then, including more recently, when award-winning filmmaker Mansore was supposedly in talks with her for his 19.20.21, a film on human rights violations, these have remained rumours. Although she has not been a part of a direct Kannada release, Gargi, will, in a sense, mark her debut in Sandalwood.
Up next, though, the actress is awaiting the release of the Telugu film Virataparvam, in which she plays a Naxalite. The Venu Udugala directed film also stars Rana Daggubati, Priyamani and Nandita Das. Sai Pallavi’s character is apparently inspired by folk singer-activist Belli Lalitha, who fought relentlessly for statehood of the Telangana region in the early 90s, but was then kidnapped and killed in 1999.
