Dil Raju wanted to repeat Anupama Parameshwaran in his next production with Nani but she turned down the offer.
During the shoot of "Shatamanam Bhavati", he asked her to sign Nani's "MCA". But Anupama turned down the opportunity to pair up with the rising star Nani as she felt the remuneration offered to her was low.
She expected double the remuneration she received for "Shatamanam Bhavati".
Anupama's loss is Sai Pallavi's gain. Both actresses hail from Kerala and both of them became popular with Malayalam version of "Premam".
Sai Pallavi is debuting in Tollywood in director Sekhar Kammula's "Fida", which is Dil Raju's production. Now he has signed her for Nani's movie as well. Venu Sriram will direct the movie that is going to be launched in June.
Sai Pallavi is slowly bagging offers in Tollywood though her first film is yet to be released.
