However, it is known that producers Swapna and Priyanka, daughters of yesteryear producer Ashwini Dutt, were very close to Raghavendra Rao since their childhood as he directed 8 films under the production banner of Vyjayanthi Movies.
They may contact him for more details about Savitri. But they didn’t approach him, which leads KRR to upset. Raghavendra Rao stated that he was really upset for the makers of the film neglecting him to enquire anything about Savitri gaaru. While speaking, he said that, “Savitri was the heroine of Pandava Vanavasam, my first film as an assistant director. I worked for numerous films with her. I didn’t know why but you haven’t approached me to ask anything about her.’
Actually, Nag Ashwin is said to have done extensive research before starting Mahanati. Savitri’s daughter Vijaya Chamundeswari and son Sathish Kumaar gave complete info about their mother from her professional life to personal life.
