Venu Udugula, who recently made Needi Naadi Oke Katha, has in the past said that his next film will be set in the 90s. “The film is a love story set against the political backdrop of the ’90s. Although the plot has a strong romantic angle, it also has commercial ingredients with elements of politics and action,” he told Deccan Chronicle a few days ago. This project is likely to have Sai Pallavi in it with the leading actor yet to be finalised.
The young actress is also likely to star in a film directed by Kranthi Madhav starring Vijay Devarakonda.
On the work front, Sai Pallavi is collaborating with Dhanush for the first time in Maari 2, a sequel to director Balaji Mohan’s 2015 film. The film also stars Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Tovino Thomas as the antagonist, and Krishna Kulasekaran.
The actress was recently seen in Diya, her Tamil debut, directed by AL Vijay. The film dealt with abortion, simultaneously releasing in Telugu as Kaanam. She has other projects in the pipeline including Selvaraghavan’s NGK with Suriya Sivakumar. She will also be seen in Padi Padi Leche Manasu.
