Director Nag Ashwin's Mahanati continues its historic run at the USA box office. The biographical drama has crossed the $ 1 million mark in less than a week, which is truly commendable. Looking at the current trend, we are expecting the film to shatter many box office records in the upcoming days.
Talking about the film and how he showcased the life of Savitri through the cinema, filmmaker Nag Ashwin said, "The film is very honest. Whatever was going on in that period is what we have tried to reflect. When she was younger, there was a certain mood and a certain way she behaved and the way the world was around her. When she became successful, how was it... And when she was in a sort of spiral, how was she and how the world was around her. That way, there's no purposeful cinematic liberty in Mahanati. We have not forced any unnecessary things because there were enough highs and lows in her real story. We just had to space it out correctly. There was no need to add any heroism to it."
Produced by Priyanka Dutt of Swapna Cinema and presented by Vyjayanthi Movies, the movie features an ensemble of well-known actors, with Keerthy Suresh playing Savitri and Dulquer Salmaan essaying Gemini Ganesan. There are also Samantha Akkineni, Naga Chaitanya, Vijay Devarakonda, as well as a slew of other celebrated actors from the southern film industry.
