Naga Shaurya discredits Sai Pallavi
Premam sensation Sai Pallavi hogged the limelight in Telugu with her impeccable performance in Sekhar Kammula’s recent blockbuster Fidaa. She took away most of the credit for the film’s success.
While audience and critics have rated her as the show-stealer in Fidaa, Sai Pallavi’s co-star Naga Shaurya, who worked with her for a bilingual film titled as Kanam, seems to be in negation to the fact that she deserves the entire credit.
As part of the promotions for his upcoming film Chalo, Naga Shaurya expressed displeasure over Sai Pallavi taking away the entire success credit of Fidaa.
He said Varun Tej’s balanced performance and Sekhar Kammula’s sensible narration and well-etched characters should equally deserve credit along with Sai Pallavi’s act in the film’s success. He also opined that it is Telangana dialect associated with the female lead’s character that clicked very well with audience what otherwise would have been a regular role.
And, when the anchor asked if he is referring that Sai Pallavi is not that good on screen and only if it was Sekhar Kammula’s directional skills that made her appear convincing, Shaurya smartly replied he didn’t mean it.
