Sai Pallavi, not Rashmika Mandanna, was allegedly the director’s original pick for the Vijay Deverakonda-starring film. Hello, comrade. Why she declined is as followsThe 2019 love drama Dear Comrade starring Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna went on to become a Telugu cult favorite. The movie received great marks from both viewers and reviewers despite its underwhelming box office performance. Everyone was impressed by the principal actors’ portrayals of Bobby and Lilly as well as their on-screen chemistry. It also served as the catalyst for Vijay and Rashmika’s alleged romance. Rashmika Mandanna wasn’t the original option for the Lilly role, though, did you know that?
Sai Pallavi reportedly was the initial pick to play Rashmika Mandanna’s character Lilly in the film Dear Comrade. She reportedly received her first offer to play Vijay’s love interest in the movie. She didn’t like the movie, nevertheless, for an unidentified reason.
In addition to Dear Comrade, Sai Pallavi was also asked to play in Ajith Kumar’s Thunivu and Thalapathy Vijay’s Leo, but she turned them down because the characters weren’t given enough weight. Due to the short duration and low character weight, she declined the roles of Manju Warrier’s character in Thunivu with Ajith Kumar and Trisha’s role as Thalapathy’s wife in Leo.
Dear Comrade, which was directed by Bharat Kamma, was concurrently released in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. Although there were suspicions that Karan Johar had purchased the rights to the film Dear Comrade, there has been no official confirmation as of yet. Justin Prabhakaran composed the film’s soundtrack. Despite the film’s mixed reviews, Rashmika and Vijay’s endearing main performances won over the audience.
In the next film, Sai Pallavi will appear alongside Sivakarthikeyan. Raj Kamal Films, a company run by Kamal Haasan, is funding the untitled movie. Sai Pallavi and Sivakarthikeyan work together for the first time in this movie. The movie is supposed to be filled with patriotism and tell a story of “Guts and Gore.”
