Dulquer Salmaan is going to step into the shoes of the legendary actor Gemini Ganesan in the most awaited biopic of the veteran actress Savitri. Titled as Mahanati, Dulquer has been zeroed in on to play the Kadhal Mannan (King of Romance.)
Being produced by Swapna Dutt and Priyanka Dutt on their home production houses Vyjayanthi Movies and Swapna Cinema, the film is being made in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam simultaneously as Savitri was quite popular across all South Indian languages.
While Keerthy Suresh is going to play the title role of Savitri, buzz is that Samantha would be roped in for the role of the yesteryear heroine Jamuna.
Now all eyes are on the roles of the doyens of Telugu Cinema – NTR and ANR. Director Nag Ashwin is leaving no stone unturned to have an ensemble cast for the film that is expected to create quite a stir in the film industry.
