It is really big thing for the Telugu speaking people and definitely a matter of pride. Mahanati, the blockbuster film which was released last year has pumped up huge collections at the box office. The film has received good reviews from all over and credit goes to director Nag Ashwin for making such a beautiful movie. Keerthy Suresh was the perfect choice to play the role of Savithri, the late actor.
The latest news is that the film is going to China, to be screened at the Shanghai International Film Festival. Sharing the news on his social media, director Nag Ashwin wrote, “Privileged to take our Savitri garu to China. Quite confident she will steal their hearts as well.. #mahanati.” (sic)
The 22 nd edition of the film festival is slated to be held from June 15-24. ‘Mahanati’ has been selected in the ‘International Panorama’ category and is reportedly the only Indian film to have the honour of being selected by the SIFF jury this year.
