There has been a great amount of buzz around the film Mahanati ever since it went on floors mid-last year. The film, a tri-lingual epic biographical drama based on the life of South Indian actress Savitri, has been a much anticipated one. The film brings together a stellar star cast of the likes of Dulquer Salmaan (as Gemini Ganesan), Anushka Shetty (as Bhanumathi), Keerthy Suresh (as Mahanati Savitri), Samantha Akkineni (as Jamuna), Naga Chaitanya (as Akkineni Nageshwara Rao) amongst others.
The makers have so far made sure that all the details about the film, including the looks of the various characters, which is one of the most important aspects since it is based on real life characters, is kept under wraps. More so, they wanted to keep the look of Mahanati – played by Keerthy Suresh veiled and bring it out in the open only close to the film’s release. However, a picture of the actress with Dulquer has gone viral. The two seem to have recreated the look of Savitri and Gemini Ganesan (above) and although it is not yet known if this is the official look or a fan-created one, cine buffs have given the makeup artists thumbs up for bringing alive the characters. Check out the leaked picture below:
