Sai Dhanshika, who made heads turn with her energetic performance as Superstar Rajini’s daughter in Kabali, has her kitty full now. She has even bagged a woman-centric film, titled Rani, that’s doing wonders for her ego. The story of Rani directed by Bani, revolves around her and the film has been shot entirely in Malaysia, including spots like Kuala Lumpur and Cameron Highlands.
But not everything has gone rosy for the dusky beauty... speaking to DC in an exclusive, the actress shares a shocking incident that occured to her recently — “Good things first — Cameron is a highly-active hill station in Malaysia, where thousands of tourists from all over the world throng everyday. We shot our film there extensively. The best part was that people from places like Holland, France and California started recognising me and called me ‘Yogi’, which was my character’s name in Kabali. Everyone took pictures with me and was hailing Rajini sir. That was the amazing popularity of Superstar among foreigners all over the globe!”
Explaining further, she said, “My producer Muthu Krishnan sir had presented me with a black Toyota Vellfire with a fancy number 5 for my personal use (Rajini was given a similar car in white during the Kabali shoot at KL). After completing the last day of my shoot, I parked my car in front of the hotel. The next morning, we came down to board the car, and much to our dismay, we found it was stolen!
The hotel management then took the CCTV footage — it was like a scene lifted straight from Hollywood films like Transporter. A group of men came to the hotel in a truck, lifted our car, slid it onto their vehicle and vanished from the spot within a fraction of a second. People said that car trafficking, especially of expensive vehicles,is very common there.”
