South Indian actress Sai Pallavi had two releases in December in Tamil and Telugu and one of the films couldn’t meet the expectations of the audience eventually turning out to be a dud. Maari 2 and Padi Padi Leche Manasu released on December 21, 2018 worldwide and the latter couldn’t manage to have a good run at the theatres. Padi Padi Leche Manasu starred Sharwanand in the other lead role and was directed by Hanu Raghavapudi. And according to latest reports, Sai Pallavi has refused to accept the remuneration due to her from the producers since the film turned out to be a flop. The producers had reportedly given the actress half of her remuneration as advance before the start of the film and agreed to pay the other half after the release. But since the film turned out to be a flop, Sai refused to accept the other half of her payment to help the producers recover the losses.
This gesture by the actress is earning her respect from film fraternity which is lauding her thought of helping the producers. These kind of gestures were displayed by many stars in the past like Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan who would reimburse the producers and distributors if they ended up in losses because of their films.
