It is already known that director Nag Ashwin, popular for directing Yevade Subramanyam, is helming the biopic on legendary actor Savitri, and that it’s titled Mahanati.

Keerthy Suresh will play the popular veteran actor while her story will be narrated through the eyes of Samantha Ruth Prabhu. On the occasion of International Women’s Day, the makers released the first glimpse of the film in the form of a poster, which has been well received and is already going viral.
