Mahanati, the Biopic of Legendary Actress, Savitri is progressing at a brisk pace. The team is leaving no stone untouched to make the Biopic film grand. After roping in several big names for the project, they have now roped in Anushka to play the role of Bhanumathi in the movie. She will join the team very soon. The makers have already announced that the movie will release on 29th March but then, we hear that they will not be able to make it out by then. Sources say that the movie involves so much of CG work and it will not be complete by that time and so they are looking at Late Summer Release. Also, March 29th release will mean a direct clash with Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam and April is flooded with many other biggies.
Nag Ashwin who made a successful debut with Nani’s Yevade Subrahmanyam is said to have conducted some extensive research on her life. He even met several artists who worked with the actress during her prime and some of her friends who are at her side when she left this mortal World. Savitri is the top heroine in those days. She is the first choice heroine for Top stars those days and is also the highest paid. But she struggled in extreme poverty in her last days. The director promised to be as honest as possible his attempt to recreate it in Cinema. This is one film we can not wait any long wait to see it on the big screen.
