The credit of introducing Sai Pallavi to Telugu screen goes to Dil Raju without a doubt. And it was during the making of Fidaa that she agreed to do two more films with the banner.
One is Nani's MCA. But producer Dil Raju got the shock when it came to the second film.
Talk is that Sai Pallavi refused to act in the film starring Nithin. The film will be directed by Sateesh Vegnesh and it will be a family entertainer. Apparently Sai Pallavi refused to work with Nithin.
The role has now gone to Pooja Hegde, who was last seen in Dil Raju's Duvvada Jagannadham.
While Sai Pallavi was open to work in all three films, she turned down Sateesh Vegnesh's film as she did not like the heroine's character narrated to her.
On the other hand, Pooja Hegde is currently acting in a film titled Sakshyam. Nithin-Vegnesh's shoot will begin in February and by then an official announcement will be made.
