Meanwhile, putting an end to rumours about him leaving his current show, Imlie. Speaking to ETimes, he said, “It is true that Agastya gets killed in the show, but I haven’t exited the show. I will have a powerful entry in the show after they show Agastya’s death. I am playing a double role and will come back in the show as Agastya’s brother. My entry is planned in a fantastic way. My character will be called Surya Pratap Reddy.”
The latest promo for Imlie also depicts Adrija Roy as distraught and broken following Agastya’s death. She goes to the market to have a picture of herself and Agastya framed. Unfortunately, a thug steals her cell phone. And this is when Sai’s new character, Inspector Surya Pratap Reddy, makes his spectacular appearance. Surya pursues the thief and manages to recover Imlie’s phone. Surya’s sophisticated flair creates an exciting atmosphere. Imlie is taken aback when she sees Surya, who appears identical like Agastya.
