Teaser of the upcoming film ‘Nadigaiyar Thilagam’ released with much expectations as this is the Tamil dubbed version of actual Telugu film called ‘Mahanati’. It is based upon the life and times of golden era actress Savitri, who is being portrayed by Kieerthy Suresh and she is looking remarkably similar to her. Prolific actor Dulquer Salman would be portraying the character of Gemini Ganesan, who is arguably the biggest star in the history of Indian cinema. Dulquer has just a glimpse in the teaser of not more than two seconds but shot in such an enigmatic way that he leaves the impact.
Telugu powerstar Vijay Deverakonda is portraying the role of a journalist and his retro look is so on point. Vijay has a supporting role in the film as he does the magic in every role and perhaps the history will be repeated. Vijay’s role might not the the most lengthiest but the importance of which is incredibly massive as Samantha Prabhu will be joining him in the cast. Samantha has just delivered the second biggest blockbuster of her career by the name of ‘Rangasthalam’ in Telugu opposite Ram Charan.
Rangasthalam has grossed more than 175 crores on the ticket window and ‘Mersal’ is the only other film of hers which has managed to do that kind of business. Makers of ‘Mahanati’ are blessed because at this point in time they have the most exciting south Indian actors all rolled in one film and hence the star cast is a major addition point to the hype. A biopic of this nature has never been made in this country before and they might be on to something remarkably unique in there. Mahanati will be released in cinemas on 9 may and a trailer with few more songs are awaiting to come right down from the makers.
