Mahanati is a prestigious film being made on the life of legendary actress Savitri. Keerthi Suresh is playing the title role in the movie and the film also stars Samantha, Vijay Devarakonda, Prakash Raj, Shalini Pandey, Krish, Tharun Bhascker and others in the lead roles.
Directed by Nag Ashwin, the film is being produced by Vyjayanthi Movies banner. The film will also feature the roles of senior NTR and ANR. In the beginning, Jr.NTR and Naga Chaitanya were approached for the roles of their grandfathers but the actors did not accept the film. As per the latest update, we have come to know that the makers are planning to remaster the old films of NTR and ANR and insert the clips in the film. The digital transformation is going to help the film a lot but it is also going to be a costly affair.
Dulquer Salman is going to be seen as Gemini Ganeshan and Mohan Babu will be seen as S.V.Ranga Rao in the movie.
