Nag Ashwin’s upcoming project Mahanati, the biopic of legendary actress Savitri, is progressing at brisk pace in which Keerthi Suresh is reprising the role of Savitri. Earlier the makers wanted to rope Young tiger Jr.NTR and Akkineni Naga Chaitanya to play the role of Sr. NTR and ANR but both actors rejected the offer. Now the makers have decide to digitally recreate these icons on the big screens.
According to the latest update, the makers are planning to remaster the old films of NTR and ANR and insert the clips in the film. The digital transformation is going to help the film a lot but it is also going to be a costly affair.
Dulquer Salman will be seen playing Gemini Ganeshan and Mohan Babu will be seen as S.V.Ranga Rao in the movie, which is being bankrolled under the banner of Vyjayanthi Movies. Apart from them, the film has other stars like Vijay Devarakonda, Prakash Raj, Shalini Pandey, Krish, Tharun Bhascker and others in supporting roles.
