When Actress Sai Pallavi Refused Rs 2-cr Fairness Cream Deal

Sai Pallavi will be playing Sita in the upcoming Rs 500-cr budget film ‘Ramayan’

Nitesh Tiwari’s upcoming mythological epic ‘Ramayan’ is being called the most ambitious Bollywood film ever with a massive budget of Rs 500 crore. While Ranbir Kapoor is playing Lord Rama in the film, Sai Pallavi, popular actress from the south, has been signed up as Sita. 

Pallavi is a known name in Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam cinema but is relatively unknown to Hindi audiences. But ‘Ramayan’ may change that. 

In 2019, the dusky complexioned actress was approached for an endorsement deal for a skin whitening cream. The actress turned the Rs 2 crore offer down. 

At an event a few years later, she explained her decision. “When I was in school and college I grew up with friends who would look at a girl with a darker boyfriend and say, aye you can do better. You are way out of his league. And when you see a guy with a girl who is a little darker you end up saying I think there is something else, what does this guy see in this girl,” said the spirited actress.

Upcoming films

Pallavi will be first seen in the Tamil film ‘Amaran’ in 2024. The film stars Sivakarthikeyan. This will be followed by the Telugu film ‘Thandel’. In 2025, the actress will make her Bollywood debut opposite Aamir Khan’s son Junaid in a yet-untitled film. And then, there is Nitesh Tiwari’s ‘Ramayan’, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Yash, Lara Dutta, Arun Govil among others.

Born in Coimbatore in 1992, Pallavi began working in her early 20s. In 2015, she made her major acting debut with ‘Premam’, a box office success. However, she paused her career to complete her medical degree from Tbilisi in Georgia. She returned to India the following year having become a qualified doctor. Pallavi then resumed her acting career.

From 2016 onwards, Pallavi earned considerable praise for her work in films like ‘Kali’, ‘Maari 2’, ‘Athiran’, ‘Love Story’, and ‘Shyam Singha Roy’. For the 2022 release ‘Gargi’, she won various awards for best actress. ‘Love Story’ earned Rs 60 crore at the box office.
