South actress Keerthy Suresh will be seen in the role of legendary actress Savitri in the upcoming biopic, Mahanati. Directed by Nag Ashwin, this film features actors like Samantha Akkineni, Dulquer Salmaan and Vijay Deverakonda in prominent roles. This prestigious biopic would hit the big screens towards the end of March 2018.
In a recent interview, Keerthy Suresh took the opportunity to speak up about donning the role of Savitri. Keerthy Suresh approached Savitri’s daughter to understand the character and mannerisms of the yesteryear actress. From what she learnt, Keerthy Suresh believes she shares a few common interests with Savitri. Apparently, both the real Savitri and the Role Savitri love swimming, cricket and cars.
Keerthy Suresh does not just want to play the role of Savitri, she wants to become Savitri for Mahanati. This is not just a movie for the young actress. She is making sure to deliver her absolute best for this much awaited biopic. Even in cases where her director is okay with her 90% effort, Keerthy is not satisfied until she gives, one hundred percent.
This only increases our anticipation of Keerthy Suresh as Savitri in Mahanati!
