Mahanati the biopic on the first South Indian lady Superstar Savitri, released on May 9th, 2018, completed an eventful year on the 9th May, 2019. Starring Keerthy Suresh in a lifetime role as the epoymous actress Savitri and ably supported by Malayalam superstar Dulquer Salmaan as Savitri’s polygamous husband Gemini Ganesan, Mahanati won both paludits from the critics and public alike.
The Nag Ashwin directorial is a strong contender for the best actress and best cinematography categories, as per sources at the impending 66th national film awards, to be announced in July.
Keerthy Suresh could not contain the happiness of the milestone Mahanati achieved and thanked team Mahanati in her Twitter handle.
“I fall short of words when I intend to talk about you. Thank you for leading me on board, being with me throughout the journey, showering me with your love and blessings. This would not have happened without you. Thank you #savitrima.”
