In the video, Pallavi is seen struggling to get her lines right in Kannada but she eventually succeeds. This project will mark Pallavi’s debut in Kannada, and she has dubbed her own lines.
Sharing the video on Twitter, she wrote, “I waited months to talk about this film, and finally!!! My birthday is when the stubborn team decided to give in and release this. Presenting to you, GARGI (sic).” Going by the video and the first look poster, it looks like the film will have some courtroom backdrop.
In another tweet, she shared the posters of the film in English, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada. Alongside the posters, she wrote, "#Gargi (red heart emoji). Give her your blessings!"
Sai Pallavi was last seen in the Telugu film Shyam Singh Roy, in which she played a Devadasi character, and she was referred to as Rosie by Nani, a writer-activist who falls in love with her. She is currently awaiting the release of the Telugu film Virataparvam. She plays a Naxalite in this Venu Udugala directed film, which also stars Rana Daggubati, Priyamani and Nandita Das.
In the film, Sai Pallavi’s character is apparently inspired by Belli Lalitha, a popular folk singer-turned-activist who played a crucial role in the fight for statehood of the Telangana region in the early 1990s. She was kidnapped and killed in 1999.
Virataparvam sheds light on the Naxal movement, specifically the moral dilemma that prevailed in the last decade. Last year, Sai Pallavi gave one of the biggest hits of her career with the Telugu film Love Story, which co-starred Naga Chaitanya.
