Mahanati, the Biopic of Legendary Actress, Savitri is progressing at a brisk pace. The makers have already announced that the movie will release on 29th March but then, they have missed it. Now, they have announced that the film will release on May 9th as Summer Special. This is an unusual release date as May 9th is Wednesday and it is an extremely difficult choice for a film with no stars to pull it through. May 10th is a partial holiday due to Hanuman Jayanthi but the advantage will not be of a big deal.
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.
