However, a source close to Hindustan Times has refuted them as baseless rumors. “Suriya is not approached for the project yet and none from the team of Savitri has spoken to the actor regarding this role.”

The movie directed by Nag Ashwin is titled Mahanati in Telugu. Keerthy Suresh will play the titular role of Savithri and Samantha Ruth Prabhu plays a pivotal character, around whom the entire story revolves.

Suriya is currently busy shooting for director Vignesh Shivan’s ‘Thaanaa Serndha Koottam’, which has entered the final phase. Based on the Hindi super hit Special 26, TSK features Keerthy Suresh as the leading lady.
