“I’m humbled and honoured to be listed in Forbes 30 Under 30 ! @forbes_india #ForbesIndia30U30,” the ‘Fidaa’ and ‘Maari 2’ actress posted on her social media page.
Quoting Sai Pallavi, Forbes India tweeted: “”I knew nothing about acting and had a million insecurities, but people’s acceptance gave me confidence,” @Sai_Pallavi92 , #ForbesIndia30U30 listee says, “Today, I am most happy if women get courage and confidence simply because they are able to relate to me.”
Sai Pallavi, who last year refused to act in a fairness cream commercial, said in an interview, “What am I going to do with the money I get from such an ad? I’ll go home and eat three chapatis or rice. I don’t have any other big needs. I see whether I can contribute to the happiness of people around me or I can say that the standards we have are wrong.”
She added: “This is the Indian colour. We can’t go to foreigners and ask them why they’re white, and if they know that they will get cancer because of it. That’s their skin colour and this is ours.”
