Mahanati, a biopic about the life of legendary actress Savitri is one of the most anticipated projects in the Telugu film industry. Keerthy Suresh would be seen in the role of Savitri while Samantha Akkineni and Dulquer Salmaan would be seen in the roles of Jamuna and Gemini Ganesan respectively. Nag Ashwin directs this highly anticipated film produced under the banner Vyjayanthi Movies. All of Mahanati's team is working hard to complete the filming formalities of their film. This film should be released on the big screens in late March 2018. Previously, filmmakers were considering between different actors who could try the roles of ANR and NTR. They first approached Akkineni Naga Chaitanya and Jr. NTR to play their own grandfather. When these two actors declined the project, the manufacturers approached Nani and Sharwanand.
It is now revealed, the decision makers intend to cover numerically the roles of the two main actors. Yes, they intend to use ANR and NTR insertion scenes of their old classics in Mahanati. They had to come up with this idea because of time constraints. However, official confirmation on this subject is still awaited.
