After the first single ‘Mooga Manasulu’ from the much-awaited film ‘Mahanati’ was unveiled on April 20, now the makers Mahanati have dropped the second classic song, titled ‘Sada Nannu’, featuring Samantha and Vijay Devarakonda. The biopic of Savitri stars Keerthy Suresh as the protagonist and Dulquer Salman as husband Gemini Ganesan. Mickey J Meyer has composed music for this venture. The makers have plans on to release it on May 9th.
Helmed by ‘Yevade Subramanyam’ fame Nag Ashwin, ‘Mahanati’ is a magnum opus period film set in the golden era. With massive set pieces, the film will be unlike anything we’ve explored in Indian cinema. Mahanati, which is a biopic on the veteran Tamil actress Savitri, features Dulquer Salman, Keerthy Suresh, who shot to fame with Tollywood film Nenu Sailaja, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Vijay Deverkonda in the pivotal roles.
The film, which is being bankrolled by C Ashwini Dutt under the banners Vyjayanthi Movies and Swapna Cinema, will also be released in Tamil, titled as Nadigayar Thilakam Savitri, which will feature the same cast. Also, the film could be dubbed in Malayalam. According to reports, the makers are in talks with Nivin Pauly to play the male lead for the film. The film’s new song, Sada Nannu’s lyrical version is out and we are absuolutely in love with Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Vijay Deverkonda’s old school romance in the song. The song also gives us a glimpse of Dulquer and Keerthy’s chemistry and boy do we adore them or what?
In the film Keerthy will portray the role of popular veteran actor Savitri; her story will be narrated through the eyes of Samantha. Talking about Dulquer’s character, the director had told IANS, “Dulquer’s character of Gemini Ganesan will merely be how the legend will be perceived today based on his work and his image. The character goes beyond the physical resemblance, in understanding the veteran on a more emotional level.”
