Sai Pallavi, the sensational actress is no longer a part of the upcoming Mani Ratnam movie. It was rumoured that Sai Pallavi turned down the offer, as she was not ready to do intimate scenes.
There r many rumours going around;Thought I'll personally clear things:No-one will ever have d heart to walk out of a Mani Sir's film.(1/4)— Sai Pallavi (@Sai_Pallavi92) April 20, 2016
But recently, the actress herself cleared the air, by stating that only a heartless actor can deny an offer from a film-maker like Mani Ratnam. It was the director himself, who decided to replace her.
Neither did I😊Sir being a legendary director knows who's best for d character & as a caring person knows what's best for me too.(2/4)— Sai Pallavi (@Sai_Pallavi92) April 20, 2016
According to the initial plot, Sai Pallavi was perfect for the lead role in the movie. But later, the team made some changes in the storyline, which also reflected in all the characters of the movie.
Mani Sir was kind enough to explain things based on developments in the script. For his stature he needn't have.(3/4)— Sai Pallavi (@Sai_Pallavi92) April 20, 2016
Mani Ratnam felt that Sai Pallavi is too young to essay the newly moulded character, which demands a matured actress. He explained the same to Pallavi, and the actress decided to back out from the project.
Being an ardent fan of his work I'm as excited as everyone for this film ❤️ (4/4)— Sai Pallavi (@Sai_Pallavi92) April 20, 2016
Sai Pallavi is extremely grateful that a veteran film-maker like Mani Ratnam was willing to explain such changes to a relatively newcomer, like her. The actress says that she is eagerly waiting for the movie.
It was Suhasini Mani Ratnam, who suggested Sai Pallavi for the role, after watching her debut movie Premam. Reportedly, Bollywood actress Aditi Rao Hydari has been roped in for the role.
