It looks like Sai Pallavi will play the role of V K Sasikala in the biopic of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, which is to be directed by A L Vijay.
“Vijay is planning to have Vidya Balan to play the role of Jayalalithaa and Sai Pallavi the role of Sasikala, who is Jayalalithaa’s close aide,” sources say.
Recently, Sai Pallavi found herself in the middle of a controversy in Tollywood when Naga Shaurya, her ‘Kanam’ co-star, felt slighted by her when she “displayed attitude”.
The actor even suggested that the actress is proudish because she thinks her films such as ‘Fidaa’ have worked only because of her.
However, Sai Pallavi’s ‘Mahanubhavudu’ hero Sharwanand had appreciated her as a sweet and highly-talented co-star with whom he would love to work with again and again.
“Sai Pallavi minds her own business and it’s not a big deal if someone is like that,” said Sharwanand, who has worked with Sai Pallavi in ‘Padi Padi Leche Manasu’.
