The other day, Sai Pallavi was called 'Lady Powerstar' by the team of 'Virata Parvam'. But the tag is funny for a major reason. And it is not because her latest box-office release is on its way to becoming a disaster (Note: 'Virata Parvam' has earned a mere Rs 3 Cr in the Telugu States on the first weekend).
Power Star Pawan Kalyan is known for remakes. 'Katamarayudu', 'Vakeel Saab', and 'Bheemla Nayak' in recent years are remakes. Then there is going to be the remake of 'Vinodhaya Seetham'. In an absolutely funny piece of news, he could also remake Vijay's 'Theri'.
On the other hand, Sai Pallavi, the 'Lady Powerstar', is dead against doing remakes. She rejected Chiranjeevi's 'Bholaa Shankar' only because it was a remake. "Generally, I am scared to do remakes because I am anxious about doing a role that was already played by someone else," she said today, speaking to Deccan Chronicle.
But the Male Powerstar is the polar opposite. Someday, he might say this: "Generally, I am kicked about doing remakes because I am excited about doing a role that was already played by someone else."
