No real life story of any Telugu actor/actress has ever been made on Silver screen till date. Though a project on yesteryear legend Savitri has been announced a long time back, till now no headway has been made. Savitri is widely loved and respected by Telugu people.
It has been finally decided. Ashwini Dutt is bankrolling this project. The young heroine, South Indian actress, Keerthy Suresh who came as a whiff of fresh air, will be essaying the role of late heroine Savitri in the biopic to be made on the heroine.
This news of the film on Savitri Biopic was announced by none other than Ashwini Dutt himself. He also revealed that Samantha also will be playing another important character in the film. Savitri Biopic will be made in Telugu and Tamil Languages. Young director Nag Ashwin is directing this movie and Ashwini Dutt is producing this movie on Vyjayanti Movies banner.
Dutt for long planned to rope in Bollywood star for the lead actress, however, he set aside that may be due to calling sheet problems or high remuneration. From then on the role has been making rounds to Nithya Menen to Samantha and back from Samantha to Nithya Menen. Finally, filmmakers finalised Keerthy Suresh.
In the recent past, Keerthy Suresh acted in Nenu Sailaja and Nenu Local Telugu films, and she is also set to pair with Pawan Kalyan in 2017.
