South Indian beauty Sai Pallavi has once again touched the pinnacle of success in her career as she became the only actress to feature in Forbes Indias 30 under 30 list. The rowdy baby actress has played powerful roles in Tamil, Malayalam, and Telugu films.
Sai Pallavi took to the popular social media app Instagram to share the good news with her fans and friends. She wrote: “I’m humbled and honoured to be listed in Forbes 30 under 30! @forbesindia #ForbesIndia30U30 of a Tweet by Forbes.”
The South Indian actress hogged the limelight after she performed the role of a teacher- ‘Malar’ in Malayalam movie ‘Premam’, which was her debut film in 2015. She was last seen in Malayalam film ‘Athiran’ opposite Fahadh Faasil.
The actress is riding high on confidence now, with her recent hit movies Athiran and Maari 2. She has also reportedly rejected a fairness cream brand endorsement deal worth 2 crore rupees. Usually, actresses would be looking forward to cashing in on to these types of deals so as to become rich but Sai Pallavi politely turned down the huge fairness cream brand that approached her for a commercial.
Well, the reason for her turning down such a massive deal is quite interesting. Sai Pallavi had earlier said, “I don’t endorse beauty products. You need to be confident about who you are and your skin colour.”
Sai who reportedly, refused to endorse the brand just because of the fact that she hardly uses cosmetics. Sai Pallavi is also known for using the smallest amount of make-up in her films and she is proud of her appearance as she likes to be simple, real and natural, even if it really meant flaunting her appearance with pimples and acne.
On the work front, Sai will be seen acting alongside Naga Chaitanya next in Love Story directed by Sekhar Kammula. Interestingly, she is also a part of Rana Daggubati starrer Virata Parvam.
