Mahanati became a huge project after Dulquer Salmaan signed up: Producer Swapna Dutt

Mahanati, the highly anticipated Telugu biopic on legendary actress Savitri is gearing up to hit screens on May 9. This Nag Ashwin directorial has Keerthy Suresh playing the role of Savitri. 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.

In a recent interview, one of the movie’s producers Swapna Dutt was all praise for Dulquer and said that Mahanti became such a big project only after he came on board. Apparently, Dulquer signed the movie immediately after he heard the narration. Swapna added that the whole team is thankful to Dulquer for being a part of the movie.

Dulquer’s 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. Both the Tamil and Telugu versions are expected to release simultaneously on May 9.
