Kamala Selvaraj, the daughter of Gemini Ganesan and Alamelu, is not happy with the recently released movie ‘Mahanati’- the biopic of legendary South Indian actress Savitri, which was released on 9th May and its Tamil version titled as Nadigaiyar Thilagam, was hit the theaters on 11th May. Gemini Ganesan daughter Kamala Selvaraj is fired on Mahanati Team. She said, “The role of my father was misinterpreted in the film Mahanati.”
Kamala Selvaraj is an obstetrician and gynecologist, she commissioned the first test tune baby of South India in August 1990. Kamala Selvaraj was also awarded the Best Lady Doctor Award-1993 and Rajiv Gandhi Memorial National Integration Award-1995.
Number of celebrities from Tollywood and Kollywood are showering praises on the team Mahanati including director Nag Ashwin and Keerthy Suresh. Savitri children Vijaya Chamundeswari and Sathish Kumaar Ganesan are also happy with Mahanati. But Gemini Ganesan’s first wife’s daughter, Kamala Selvaraj, is raising objections for the way her father Gemini Ganesan character was portrayed in Mahanati.
In Nag Ashiwn’s Mahanati, Gemini Ganesan is portrayed as one of the main reasons behind Savitri’s downfall both on the career and personal fronts. This is not going well with Gemini’s daughter, Kamala Selvaraj as she made a few interesting comments about Savitri’s relationship with her father. Speaking to a website reporter on Wednesday, Kamala Selvaraj questioned the Mahanati team, “How can you say that Gemini Ganesan loved only Savitri and not his first wife when he already had 2 kids with her?”.
Kamala Selvaraj is saying that everybody knows her father Gemini Ganesan was a top hero along with MGR and Sivaji Ganesan in Tamil film industry. But her father Gemini Ganesan character was portrayed as a lazy person in Mahanati.
Kamala Selvaraj said, she was shocked as Mahanati has shown Gemini Ganesan encouraged Savitri to drink alcohol. She also said that is not right to show that all the big actors ignored Savitri when she was in troubles.
Kamala Selvaraj further said, “Mahanati portrays Gemini Ganesan as the main antagonist in Savitri’s life, but that is not the case in reality. Kamala Selvaraj added that Savitri hated Gemini Ganesan to the core and once used her dog to attack them when they visited the actress’s house.
Kamala Selvaraj concluded it by saying that the makers cannot show every single aspect of a person’s life in the span of 3 hours.
