After having been in pre-production stage for a long time, ‘Mahanati’, a biopic on legendary actress Savitri finally went on floors on Monday at Ramakrishna studios in Hyderabad.
To be directed by Nag Ashwin of ‘Yevade Subramanyam’ fame, Mahanati has Keerthy Suresh essaying the role of Savitri. Samantha will be seen as a journalist. Vijay Devarakonda has been roped in to play the love interest of Sam whereas Malayalam actor Dulquer Salman will reportedly play the character of Gemini Ganesan.
The story of Savitri is inextricably linked to Telugu legends – NTR and ANR. It has to be seen who the makers rope in for these roles.
