Check out Dulquer Salmaan’s stylish retro avatar from Mahanati
We are just a couple of days away from the release of the highly anticipated Mahanati. The movie directed by Nag Ashwin is the biopic on legendary actress Savitri. Keerthy Suresh plays the role of Savitri while Malayali actor Dulquer Salmaan, who is making his Telugu debut, is playing Gemini Ganesan in the movie. Vijay Deverakonda, Naga Chaitanya, Samantha, Prakash Rajendra Prasad, Mohan Babu and Shalini Pandey are also part of the movie’s massive star cast.
Dulquer Salmaan recently posted a few of his stylish stills from the movie in his social media handle. He captioned it as,
So loved the styling of #Mahanati ! My favourite era for fashion has always been the 50s-60s ! Gemini was one of the coolest characters I got to play !!
Dulquer is one of the major attractions of Mahanati. His presence guarantees a big opening for the movie in Kerala. The actor has not had a release for nearly seven months now and naturally his fans are eagerly waiting for Mahanati. Though the movie revolves around Savitri’s life, Dulquer as Gemini Ganesan is one of the principal characters in the movie. Savitri was briefly married to actor Gemini Ganesan in real life and the movie will also show some lesser known details about their relationship.
Mahanati traces Savitri’s life from the 1940s to 1980s and features those films she acted with NT Rama Rao, Akkineni Nageshwara Rao and other legends from the Telugu and Tamil film industry. Since she was popular in all the southern industries, the movie is releasing in Tamil as well, as Nadigayar Thilagam. While Mahanati is all set for release on May 9, the Tamil version is slated to hit screens on May 11.
