The upcoming film Mahanati’s new poster is out and the black and white poster of the film looks promising. The poster has left the Internet stunned as Keerthu Suresh looks astounding in the poster. The Agnyaathavaasi actor is playing the role of yesteryear superstar Savitri and the look created is almost close to perfection. Keerthy’s uncanny resemblance to Savitri has already set high expectations for the film. In the poster, a scene from one of the Savitri’s films ‘Mayabazaar’has been recreated. Keerthy is decked up in antique jewels leans casually on a table with a hand on her cheeks and a trace of the smile on her face.

The film’s stylist Indrakshi tweeted, “Mayabazaar, one of my most challenging scenes to recreate. My team & I went crazy trying to get the exact matching jewelry and fabrics right in the deadline we had. Thankful to #Gaurang #LBajrangPershadJewellers & #SriFineJewellery for making it possible 🙏🏼 #StyledByIndrakshi.”

In several media interactions, Keerthy Suresh had said that she had around 120 costumes that she used throughout the shooting process. It took around six months for research and over a year for weaving, texturing and colouring to get the look right for designer Gaurang Shah.
