Samantha-Keerthy Suresh starrer ‘Mahanati’, a biopic being made in Telugu and Tamil on the life of veteran actress Savitri, is progressing in a steady manner.
The latest update about the flick is that Shivam Rao, who wowed audiences and critics alike with his production design in India’s first submarine-based war drama ‘Ghazi’, has been roped in for ‘Mahanati’.
Dulquer Salman is said to be playing the role of Savitri’s husband Gemini Ganesan. The team has also approached Anushka Shetty and Prakash Raj to play pivotal roles.
Confirming the development, Swapna Dutt, the producer of the film, said recently, “Dulquer will be seen in a full-length role and is the male lead of the film.”
