Young and talented filmmaker Nag Ashwin is pulling a casting coup of sorts for his upcoming bilingual Mahanati which traces the life of legendary yesteryear South actress Savitri. The film stars an ensemble cast in the form of Keerthi Suresh, Samantha and Anushka in crucial roles.
According to the latest update, Malayalam popular actor Dulquer Salmaan has been roped in to reprise the role of Gemini Ganeshan in the film. While Keerthi Suresh is playing the titular role in the film, Samantha will be seen as a journalist. The pre production is nearing completion and the regular shooting will commence very soon.
Vyjayanthi Movies and Swapna Cinema will jointly pool money bags for this highly anticipated biopic.
