Teaser of much awaited ‘Mahanati’ starring Dulquer Salman, Samantha Prabhu, Vijay Deverakonda and Keerthy will arrive on 14 April. This film is a biopic on actress Savitri of golden era of cinema and she is played by Keerthi while Dulquer is playing the superstar Gemini Ganesan. Samantha and Vijay will be portraying two journalists who have had an important role to play in the life of Savitri. Star cast of this film is certainly one of the most impressive ever put together in Indian cinema and similar are the expectations from the film itself.
Indian film industry don’t really focus on the biopics though the trend has started to put up the lives of sports persons up on the screen in some way or the other. Vidya Balan is so far the only actress who have done the biopic on another actress as she portrayed Silk Smitha in ‘Dirty Picture’. Mahanati is only the second biopic of this nature and hence audience members don’t know what to expect which is generating the curiosity even more so for people who would not have much idea of the life and times of Savitri.
Teaser of the film is awaited by almost all of Southern India film audience to say the least because such is the star cast. Vjay Deverakonda is one of the most exciting star working in Telugu industry these days and post Arjun Reddy, every film of his is most awaited. Dulquer owns his audience in Malayalam cinema and continuously growing to be a pan Indian super star. Samantha has recently delivered a blockbuster in Telugu by the name of ‘Rangasthalam’ and has a massive fan base in Tamil cinema as well which is why film will be dubbed in Tamil. Mahanati has generated quite a pre-release hype and will come out on 9 May.
