Virata Parvam actor Sai Pallavi says she does not want to be stuck with an image

Sai Pallavi broke into the hearts of cinema lovers following the release of the Malayalam blockbuster, Premam. The actor has since worked in a number of movies and is now awaiting the release of Virata Parvam. The actor has now stated that she does not want to be stuck with an image. 

“I don’t want to be stuck with an image. Playing versatile roles always challenges me as an actor. I am enjoying myself, my work and the challenges. As an actor, I need to remain under pressure. Only then, I can feel the pain of a character ,” Sai Pallavi told The New Indian Express. 

The actor added that she had to pull off a realistic portrayal while playing a character as raw as Vennela from Virata Parvam and that there is no room for glamour. She further added that it was empowering to play a character that needed to look natural. 

Sai Pallavi also said that times are changing and that an actor can work on a film like Virata Parvam with confidence. 

Pallavi’s character named Vennela from the film is based on a Warangal woman named Sarala, and the movie is inspired by real incidents. Directed by Venu Udugula, the film is a love story set during the Naxalite movement in 1990s Telangana. 

Rana Daggubati, who is Pallavi’s co-star in the film, recently said that while someone else could replace him for his role in the movie, Sai Pallavi cannot be replaced from Virata Parvam. 

The action-romance also stars Priyamani, Nanditha Das, Naveen Chandra, Sai Chand, Benarji, Nagineedu, Zareena Wahab, Eswari Rao, Rahul Ramakrishna, Devi Prasad, Anand Ravi and Anand Chakrapani in important roles.

The film is set to hit theatres on June 17, and Netflix has acquired its streaming rights.
