Biopic on the life of late legendary actress Savitri

Legendry actress Savitri has acted in more than 318 films in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi during 1950’s and 60’s. Born on January 4, 1936, Savitri made her acting debut in 1950 Telugu-

Tamil drama Samarasam , and went on to star in several classics.  Her role in films including Pasamalar, Thiruvilaiyadal, Navarathiri were well received by the audience.

Now it is heard that director Nag Ashwin, will direct a Telugu-Tamil bilingual biopic on the life of Savitri.

“The film has been titled Mahanati , and it’ll be a magnum opus period film set in the golden era. With massive set pieces, the film will be unlike anything we’ve explored in Indian cinema.

I’ve just finished the script and should finalise the cast soon,” he said.

“Her life is quite a story. We are in that moment in time where it’s been long enough that the legends have left us, that we will have to revisit them and understand why they are legends,” Ashwin said.
