The actor who was present at the audio launch of Mahanati said, “I am proud to play a small part in this film about Savitri garu. I have taken a risk with this film because I am not the main character, but I am proud to be a part of this film because it is a story which must be told. I signed this film for that one scene, which is an ode to one of the greatest heroines we know. I am thankful to Nag Ashwin for giving me a chance to be a part of this wonderful story.”
