'Bholaa Shankar', the Telugu remake of 'Vedalam', was to feature Sai Pallavi as the sister of Megastar Chiranjeevi. The role eventually went to Keerthy Suresh. While the 'Fidaa' star was the first choice of director Meher Ramesh, what made him cast the 'Mahanati' star instead?
The 'Love Story' actress has revealed that she doesn't like to do remakes because they are tough to handle. That's why she lost the movie to her policy. Usually, no actor would reject a Chiru movie. But the 'MCA' actress has foregone it.
Sai Pallavi is aware that the biggest star in Tollywood is Chiru. Yet, she didn't act against her covinctions.
On his part, Chiru didn't want to act opposite Sai Pallavi as a brother in his mind. It's a win-win for both! And the 'Miss India' actress is plain lucky!
