A poster of Mahanati is doing rounds in the social media. In the poster, Keerthy Suresh is seen alongside Dulquer Salman. The pose is very similar to a old still of Savitri and Gemini Ganeshan. Closely observing that the movie gives a feeling that it is a fanmade poster. But then, a section of media is publicizing the poster as official but leaked. The team is yet to confirm about this poster.
The makers have already announced that the movie will release on 29th March but then, they have missed it. Now, they are looking at May Release. The team has announced that it is due to the delay in the VFX work. 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.
