However, in real life, Pallavi never attempted to write a letter again after receiving a scolding from his parents for the first time he wrote. The actor recalled the incident in a recent conversation about the film with the YouTube channel My Village Show, facilitated by Netflix.
When asked if the letters she wrote in the film were real or if she was acting, the actor replied: “In this film, I wrote them as per the director’s instructions. But in real life, I wrote a letter only once. I wrote a letter to a boy, it was in my childhood. Maybe when I was on my 7th pattern. I got caught. My parents beat me a lot, a lot.”
When the same question was asked of his co-star Rana Daggubati, who replied that he wrote one for his late grandfather – filmmaker Daggubati Ramanaidu. He said, “Well, I wrote one for my grandfather in Karamchedu in my childhood. That was all. I didn’t write letters to anyone after that.”
Virata Parvam opened in theaters on June 17, but failed to perform well at the box office. It began streaming on Netflix on July 1. The Telugu period romantic action drama film is written and directed by Venu Udugula and produced by Suresh Productions and SLV Cinemas. Set in the Telangana region in the 1990s amidst the Naxalite movement, the film also stars Priyamani, Nandita Das, Naveen Chandra, Zarina Wahab, Easwari Rao and Sai Chand.
Pallavi will be seen in Gargi, her second theatrical release this year. She plays a teacher in the film, written and directed by Gautham Ramachandran. The release is scheduled for July 15th.
