Happy Birthday Sai Pallavi: Fidaa motion poster is out
A motion poster of Fidaa featuring actress Sai Pallavi was released on Tuesday on the occasion of Sai Pallavi’s birthday who turned 25 today. Fidaa is an upcoming romantic film starring Pallavi and Varun Tej in the lead roles. Besides Fidaa, she has also signed another Telugu film titled MCA, which will be directed by Venu Sriram and produced by Dil Raju. And she was last seen in last year’s Kali, which had Dulquer Salmaan in the lead role. She made her Malayalam film debut with 2015’s cult hit Premam. In Fidaa, Pallavi plays a girl from Telangana and the film follows her love story with an NRI boy, played by Varun. She later dropped out of Vikram’s upcoming film with director Vijay Chander titled Sketch citing date issues. The project has now been put on hold by director AL Vijay. The film has Nani in the lead role, while Bhumika Chawla will also be playing a key role. Mega Prince Varun Tej & Sai Pallavi on the sets of #Fidaa pic.twitter.com/ELW1Zb0ysu

However, Pallavi’s debut in Tamil has been delayed for a long time due to various reasons. Vijay, however, will be directing Pallavi in Karu, which was launched recently and it will mark the actor’s much-awaited Tamil debut. The buzz is that the filmmakers have planned to release Fidaa on August 4 this year. However, it did not materialise. The film, which marks Pallavi’s debut in Telugu cinema, is fast nearing completion and the filmmakers are expected to wrap up the shoot by the end of this month. She was roped in to reprise the role of Parvathy in the Tamil remake of Malayalam super hit Charlie opposite Madhavan. The upcoming romantic entertainer is bankrolled by popular Tollywood producer Dil Raju and has music from composer Shakthi Kanth. She was reportedly the first choice of director Mani Ratnam for the female lead in Kaatru Veliyidai. Although Pallavi has just two Malayalam films to her credit, she is a promising talent to look out for in the south Indian film industry.
