Like it or not, Telugu film industry is a male dominated industry. Even top heroines don't get to set rules for the film-makers.
Writing a story to fit in a heroine and managing schedules as per heroine's demands doesn't happen in film industries.
Similarly, the heroines don't demand the stories to be changed and neither do they insist on their characters being changed.
One girl who has been going great days is heroine Sai Pallavi. Though none of the star heroes work with her, she is nevertheless a mini superstar in her range.
While some feel she is over-doing it, there are others who feel this is a welcome change in a industry that glorifies heroes. But on her part, Sai Pallavi is getting the industry to play to her tunes.
