She became a well-known name after the stupendous success of Malayalam film Premam. Sai Pallavi, who played the role of Malar in the film starring Nivin Pauly, is now being approached by other south film industries. She was reportedly signed on for a Mani Ratnam film starring actor Karthi. The audience was excited about this as they would get to see her in a Mani Ratnam film. The ace director is known for his strong portrayal of relationships on screen.

However, now there are reports that she is no longer in the film and it was rumoured that she opted out. Sai Pallavi is currently shooting in Georgia but the rumours reached her as the media had been calling her mother. The talented actress took to social media to clarify what had happened as far as this film goes. She stated that the actress required for the role was someone more mature as there had been changes in the script. As a result, Mani Ratnam explained this to her and thus they would be getting someone else on board now.

Sai Pallavi said she is excited about the film though she is no longer part of it. But then who knows, she might end up working with Mani Ratnam sometime in the future!
