Keerthy Suresh would be seen in the role of legendary actress Savitri, in her upcoming biopic Mahanati. Dulquer Salmaan would play the role of Gemini Ganesan while Samantha Akkineni would be seen in the role of a journalist in this direction of Nag Ashwin. Actors such as Vijay Deverakonda, Shalin Pandey, Malavika Nair, Prakash Raj, Mohan Babu and others would also be seen in crucial roles. The whole story of Savitri's life would be told from the point of view of Samantha (journalist). Keerthy Suresh recently spoke about her role in Mahanati and her work experience. Apparently, she was a bit hesitant when Ashwin told her the script. She continued to wonder if it would be the right decision to take such a fascinating role at such an early stage in her caregiver. However, Ashwin's script really impressed and she decided to jump into the water.
Keerthy has now revealed, she is very happy that she made the decision to play Savitri. Although she has been part of many big-budget South Indian films, they are nothing compared to Mahanati. Apparently, Keerthy Suresh would be seen in about 120 costumes in this biopic! Normally, an actress has a maximum of 30 costumes in a movie. From this we can understand how beautiful Mahanati would be. Especially since this film is in the golden age of cinema, it should be grandiose in every sense of the term.
