Actress Sai Pallavi opens up about why she turned down the offer to act in Bholaa Shankar. Bholaa Shankar is the remake of the Tamil film Vedhaalam. Earlier, there were reports that Sai Pallavi turned down the offer to act in the Chiranjeevi starter.
Keerthy Suresh will play the role of Chiranjeevi’s sister. The role was initially offered to Sai Pallavi. Talking about it, actor Chiranjeevi said he is glad Sai Pallavi turned down the offer. This was during the pre-release event of ‘Love Story’.
“Sai Pallavi was offered to play my younger sister. I’m glad she turned down the role because I would like to act with her in a romantic film instead. I want to dance to a duet with her and her playing my sister would’ve spoiled that;” Said Chiranjeevi.
Sai Pallavi, as shocked as she is, grabbed the mike immediately. Sai Pallavi said that she turned down the offer only because she is scared to act in remake films. “I’m scared to act in remakes, which is the only reason why I said no. Otherwise, why would I want to miss an opportunity to act with you? Wherever I go, the first question I’m always asked is if I met you. When I met Ram Charan a while ago too I wondered when I would meet you. I’ll be honoured to work with you someday;” said Sai Pallavi.
Aamir Khan, who was also a chief guest, chipped in, “I don’t even understand Telugu but I can understand this conversation,” he laughed.
Directed by Sekhar Kammula, Naga Chaitanya and Sai Pallavi starrer Love Story will hit screens on September 24.
