The actor was initially considered for Gemini Ganeshan role in the film but it has gone to Dulquer Salmaan. Now, it looks like Nag Ashwin in any way wanted Vijay Devarakonda in some role. The makers have already confirmed a role for him, but they are staying tight-lipped about the same as they wanted to announce it when the right time comes.
Mahanati is the title of the upcoming Telugu film being made as a biopic of actress Savitri. The film is certainly going to be an interesting one in many ways. Nag Ashwin is the director of the film. The film is being made by Vyjayanthi Movies Banner. Meanwhile, the initial buzz is that Vijay Devarakonda was supposed to play an interesting role in the film but in the last minute he lost the chance.
