There are a lot of rumours about the project Mahanati from the beginning. As the film is gearing up for a release tomorrow, there is still no clarity on who will be seen as SR NTR in the movie. The makers initially approached JR NTR to play the particular role but the young hero declined the offer citing the reason that he is still not ready for taking up such a big challenge. Director Nag Ashwin also confirmed the same in his recent interviews.
Meanwhile, the inside sources about the film unit reveal that Nag Ashwin and team has digitally re-created SR NTR in the movie and all his scenes are going to be a delight to watch on the big screen. Keerthy Suresh is playing Savitri in the movie that is hitting the screens tomorrow.
