Her debut film gave her friends for life. Alphonse Puthiran and Nivin Pauly are now on speed dial for Sai Pallavi.
‘Nivin is an amazing co-star. He is honest and a best friend one dreams of having. When roles are offered to me now, I consult him whether I should take it up or not. He is so straightforward that once I asked him about a certain movie and he blatantly told me that if I took it up I would be perfect to play his mother in the next. He never really made me feel like he was this big star. Now we are more like family.’
