Sai Dhansika, who played superstar Rajinikanth’s dauther in the 2016 colossal hit film Kabali and won laurels for her performance in a tomboy kind of a character, is all set to make her foray in Telugu films by debuting in Tollywood very soon.
Along with Aditi Balan (Aruvi fame), Sri Priyanka, Sai Dhansika and Aishwarya Rajesh, Sai Dhansika is among the very few actresses who dub for their on-screen characters in their own voices. It is, however, an exhilarating feeling that ‘milky beauty’ Tamannaah (who is basically a Punjabi) has also started dubbing in her own voice for the past few years for her characters in her Tamil and Telugu films.
Dhansika’s role in a recent short-film titled Sinam was appreciated and it was also screened at the International Film Festival of India held in Kolkata. She also bagged the ‘best actress’ award for her portrayal as the film bagged eight awards. Expressing her happiness, Dhansika said “As a performer, I feel happy when a script-writer writes his script with a woman protagonist in mind; it was a very nice experience in Sinam.
“My debut Telugu film also has a very nice script by Kiran. Surya Tej plays the hero in Mela which has Bharat Reddy, Muneeshkanth and ‘Jangir’ Madhumita as the film is shot simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu. I don’t have a hero in the film for which I have performed my own stunts without using a body-double. I have also sweated a lot in the song sequences and I’m sure the hardwork would yield good results,” she says.
