The makers of Mahanati, the Biopic of Legendary Actress Savitri are having a tough time to finalize the roles of Legends NTR and ANR. They wanted to have Junior NTR and Naga Chaitanya to play the roles but we are told that they are reluctant. Nani was approached to play NTR but even that did not materialize.
Reprising the legends is very tough and moreover, Mahanati is not so promising after that title motion poster release. So, the actor’s are reluctant. The makers are also thinking along the lines to recreate the legends using Graphic but that is a painfully time-consuming process, they opine. The movie which was early announced for March 29th Release is now postponed indefinitely. Keerthy Suresh is playing the role of Savitri while Samantha will be playing a journalist who will narrate the story. Yevade Subrahmanyam fame Nag Ashwin is wielding the megaphone for this biopic movie. 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.Follow @THEPANIPURI
