I don’t know how to act: Sai Pallavi

June 08, 2019 | 17:25 IST | Celebrity Interview, CineBuzz |

Sai Pallavi who was last seen alongside Suriya in NGK has been one of the very few actresses who picks up her roles perfectly.

Talking about her role in NGK, Sai Pallavi revealed: I did NGK because I knew it was going to be one heck of a learning experience. Selvaraghavan sir made me do things that aren’t in my comfort zone. He’s an ideal teacher and will show exact expressions that one must give. I learned so much about acting and cinema from him. In particular, there was so much unlearning. During the shoot, he made me drop my inhibitions and react to situations the way I would if I were at home. You can even go for 15-20 takes, you wouldn’t see him lose cool. Ever since NGK, I have been rooting for roles that challenge me.”

She also added that she doesn’t know to act. She says, “Some actors are methodical and others, spontaneous. I’m an amalgamation of both. To be honest, I don’t know how to act. Earlier, I simply would follow what my directors used to say. Now, I show involvement on the sets. I observe, behave, respond and learn.”
