Naga Chaitanya is busy in wrapping up of “Savyasachi”. “Mahanati” is the biopic of the legendary actress Savithri coming up in the direction of Naga Ashwin. Keerthi Suresh is the leading lady for the female-oriented film.
Makers were in search of actors who can don NTR, ANR roles for a long time. They were after their acting heirs Jr NTR and Naga Chaitanya for some time but none of them given their consent to portray those roles.
It was heard Jr NTR said a strict ‘No’ to essay his grandfather role whereas Naga Caitanya said “Yes” after a while.So Mahanati team was joyous to show Chaitu as late ANR. Chaitu too seems busy in getting a makeover like ANR in this landmark film.
